I thought I would bring this thread back from the dead with an update. I had the buggy out several times this summer and it worked flawlessly. It would pretty much go wherever I pointed it,but I am now in the process of cutting it up and starting a new project. I loved having the buggy, I just didn't like not being able to keep the weather out and no longer being able to drive it on the street. I picked up an 88 toy 2wd from another member on the board named DJ, a local guy to me. I plan to cut all of the cage off the frame and put the cab on along with a bed cage and the bedsides. I plan to start another build thread soon with all of my progress so far :biggthumpup:

Just when I start thinking I want to cut my rig up you decide to build simular to what I already have.

Now that you have wheeled some with the one link rear, how do ya like it? I have been contimplating doing this and keeping the front leafs, but I don't want the rear outflexing the front.
Hug your kids, pray for a soldier, and don't sweat the small stuff.

I've been happy with it, so much so that it's all going into the next rig. It was cheap to build and the truck seems to climb very good with the settup, I have not noticed any bouncing and with the front leaf settup I have it really doesnt over flex it. Overall, I would recomend a one link to anyone on a tight budget. :thumbs:
