    I got all of the little mounting tabs for the floorboards tacked in (minus 4 that I can't get to until I pull the motor back out). Also got the dash installed as well. Brake pedal/master cylinder, gas pedal, and orbital steering valve installed. Transfer case shifter installed too.

    Haven't had much time to work on it lately. I started to get the wheels mounted in the tires last night. I'm embarrased to admit, but those things totally kicked my butt!! 4 hours and only got 2 mounted!! They are Stazworks 16.5x12 double bead locks. I had them custom made to match the wheels on my truck.

    43" vs 37"

    Well, after taking almost 2 months off of working on my buggy to spend some time with my family, I got back on it a few weeks ago.

    I got the front axle truss installed and welded out. Then mounted it to the chassis. I have temporary "shocks" (1" pipe) in place for now.







    Then I got the front hubs put together, and finally assembled all 4 wheels and.......Ladies and Gentleman.....we have a ROLLER!!

    With a baby on the way, and building a new house, I haven't spent much time on the buggy lately. But I did manage to get some stuff done on it this weekend.

    I got the new lower side bars and skins installed. Also got the steering column in place.

    After 3 months of not working on the buggy, I'm starting to get back into it. I sold my Scrambler so that will motivate me to finish the buggy since I don't have anything to wheel right now!.....

    Here's a run down of what I've done in the last 2 weeks....

    I've installed.....

    Bump Stops
    Upper seat belt mounts
    Fuel Tank
    Sway bars
    Radiator
    Steering Cooler
    Winch and fairlead
    Front Bumper

    I did some testing of the suspension from full bump to full droop.....no interference issues.....I got plenty of room...

    The switch panel was made by 12 Volt Unlimited.





    Full Bump


    Full Droop
