well, i have been playng in the garage for some time now, and the build is almost complete. So i thought i would share some pics of the builds progression. Its not the prettiest thing around, but i build everythng myself, in my garage using minimal tooling.
specs for the build.
bunch of non-sense..lol
on with the pics, hope you guys like.
started with a well worn out 88 4.0 231 i picked up for 600 bucks.
cut the doors of(made removeable)
picked up some tube for the rock sliders. 2x4 .188 wall.
then got busy cuttng out the rockers for the rock sliders.
dropped out the disco d30 in for a non disco d30..it was free.
used the plasma to cut out some 3/16 gusset plates for the the axle.
all plated up and painted
while the axle was out, i decided to cut out some frame gussets for the front. and weld them in,
