Cool build. I just noticed you are from Glenwood Springs. A buddy of mine recently moved there. He runs a rear steer buggy built by Jimmy's.

I have the core A and B pillars and the body is fitted most of the way. I have been putting it together and fitting it over and over for the past 2 weeks so it's good to get that mostly done. I also mounted the the drivetrain but I may change the engine mounts to let the front 4 link get a little lower. I also started on the rear. If I can make it work I would like to be able to run a rear third seat. So right now that is determining my ride height. 20190725_091706.jpg20190731_173237.jpg20190731_182829.jpg

Jack Daniels Honey & Ginger Beer. Always use Crabbies Ginger Beer (alcoholic) over the non alcoholic ginger beer. Kind of an expensive drink since the Crabbies are around $3 a bottle but damn it tastes good.

When I had the tub out I sprayed the underneath with Lizard Skin ceramic coating. I have heard good things about it. Wheeling in the summer is tough when it's hot out and I am baking in my rig too. Hopefully this helps. I also want the wife to go and this should help her enjoy it better.

Then I put it back in, mocked up some seat mounts and started figuring out the rear. 20190815_133818.jpg20190825_130017.jpg20190825_130040.jpg20190825_130136.jpg

I went wheeling with the 4runner for the last time last week. I pulled the motor and sold it and started stripping parts off fir the scout. 20190831_180324.jpg20190902_111255.jpg

I got the front and rear axles mocked into place. The front looks like it is going to clear everything. At full compression it is close to the exhaust so I might Clearance the exhaust a little. I had to mock up the rear completely. Cut the tubes, weld on the c's. I made it the same as the front. Then I am running the steering in front of the axle for protection, and so I can access the ring and pinion. 20190908_160825.jpg20190910_175548.jpg20190910_175246.jpg20190910_175603.jpg
