    Radius arm basics?

    A standard setup would just be called radius arms. I bet cutting your frame is against safety requirements. The point is if you say you want a swaybar for road manners nobody cares but if you say you're doing it to be legal, everybody is going to think you're weird. Also if you were really...

    Radius arm basics?

    The "trophy husband" pro mod buggy build

    I got the rest of the front motor mounts built today. Two more tube couplers to hold it all in place and then the motor can be dropped out the bottom. I will finish the passenger side of the mount when I do the belly pan. It’ll just be a few tabs off the oil pan to the belly pan so it’s all...

    Bent Rubicon 44

    I don’t think it’s worth putting effort into it unless you just chain it down and torch it to straighten it out.
