here's a pic of the truck before i cut it up.
Do you have plans for an inside cage? The rear roll bar needs more to be effective. Unless its not done then...nevermind.
Looking forward to the final product.
its not quite finished. it was only added to add a little to the rear just in case of a flop. i didnt build it intending for it to be used as a full on roll cage. i have plans for some sort of exterior protection in the future, this was just to make it a little safer for the rear seat passengers.
got my 5" tjm coils on this eve. (also have 2" metal tech spacers)
also got one side support mocked up and some new led tail lights.
Damn! that thing is looking great. I love how "simple" you have kept everything!
im all about simple! i try to not get too fancy or complicated when i know its just gonna get smashed up anyway.
you still keeping it street legal?
not exactly "legal" but enough that i can run it on the road when i have to.
Is the rear getting enclosed? Im thinking like what your doing but getting rid of all the sheet metal back there and just making some sort of tube bed.
How about a custom soft top?
Looks awesome, that thing will be nasty on the trails.
I was going to ask this. Are you leaving it open in the back truggy-style? Or is it getting closed in?
no plans to enclose the back. i have a few more pieces of tube to add but it will look pretty much the way it does now.
i am going to get some sort of "top" to hang from the roof behind the rear seat but it will only be there to keep someone in the back seat from soaked if its raining. it wont be covering anything other than the back seat though.
got a little more done tonight
A bit off topic, but what sliders are you running? I like the upturned kick outs.
got it mostly finished today. still need to get my turn signals in and maybe another piece of tube or two.
