Only one pic so far. We assembled the rear suspension and the coil overs just came in. Waiting on the springs.

Daryll,
I noticed that you have the long torsion bars. What size 'meats you gonna put on there?
I ask because I have the long torsions too and I've run across a hell of a deal on 31" tires for damn near free. I'm a bit nervous they won't work for me, but I think I'll get 'em any way.

Does the 3x3's give you enough clearance?

Sorry for jacking the post a bit.


That thing looks damn tough! <So far>. Can't wait to see the end.

You can run 33s with the right offset wheel and 3x3 arms. The 31s should fit without having to worry about hitting the torsions.

is that at "D"'s

Not sure the full plan for the cage but a few things I would do.

1. the door bar, at the dip I would turn it into an x-brace maybe a mirrored loop to each lower corner on the door bars, and if you have no need for the real heavy tube go for some 3/4" to 1" tube.

2. The rear shock hoop/loop. You have a 90' pipe running into the front of your cage hoop. I would have a 45' tube run from the shock eye down to the corner were your cage hoop meets the lower cage bar and figure out how to tie in the upper part of the shock hoop into your your rear down bar of your main cage hoop.

Just some ideas. I love Triangles and 45' angle over a box an 90' angles.

Yes thats at my place.

There is some bracing that still needs to be done, including the door bars and rear shock mounts as well as a few more spots.
