Well i didn't get any pics up tonight. Hopefully tomorrow i can. Pumkin toy zipped over tonight and we got the rear suspension all cut off and the frame to. I think i'm bout ready to mock up the 4 link and stuff. Caleb is check n on some random mock up tube at work tomorrow for me. Thanks again Pumkin. HA HA   I went out to twisted customs today (local buggy shop here) and he hooked me up straight wit all my link ends. So no more TG ends anymore, kinda stoked bout that! Hope n to get a good start on the 4 link this week, see how it goes. The wife is think n i'm in the garage a little to much, ya know how that goes. HA Ha Then i go blog on MC, Ha HA lol  :argue: :idiot: Naw she's pretty cool bout it. Be able to take family when done wit runner, so its all good... :camping:
NO problem dog! glad i could help a bro out :thumbs:

I might be dove n mine dude and the topper yo!! Still looking into and decide n bout it! The rear seat kinda messes me a bit if i do that. I have to put rear seat back in and see were i can dove it at, cause i am keep n the original seat back there! Ya i got a few plans on how the back tube will be, cant wait to use the bender man. We built some hockey nets wit the bender bout a month ago an it was :rockingout: man!

Well a job came up at work and i had to work out of town for a couple days! So i didn't get much done last few days. We got the tube for the mock up links.  :woohoo: Have to go get some 1 1/4 jam nuts tomorrow and i think i'll be ready to start 4 link!

well I got all the jam nuts and stuff I need for links! got one end of the mock links made up and ready. I'll do the other end when I figure out my length! I got all the braket's cut off axle(well caleb did anyway thanks man) and some of it grinded, and got a few link braket's made up! we also got a tube bent up for a axle truss and and the upper links will mount to that! the truss turned out ok but one bend on left was off a little so were gona bend a new one. that's bout the mount of it for the weekend.
oh and I took all the stuff I cut off runner plus some random stuff I had laying around to a steel recycling place and got huge bank for it. ha ha 500 lb of steel , made $26 bone's. should pay for whole project. lol I also got my air shocks to from local buggy shop. they have it all out there. they rock! decided  to go wit the 2.0's yo! should work fine but the 2.5's would be sick! just way to much money for me . I'll post up some more pics here soon of how the link set up is going! should have it mocked up this week is my plan!

Here is a few pics. The shocks are the chrome fox 2.0's so i wrapped them up wit some sno camo foam tape i had to protect during the build. Looks super trick wicked. HA HA. I plan on getting them powdercoated later cause i'm not a big fan of the chrome. I might even just leave the tape on there cause its so sick. lol the other pics are of the lower link mount, which will get welded to frame than a tube off that to cross member for more support later. time for some  :sleepy:
