Then think of a way to fit this in

Image


Draw up a frame

Image

I have a tube bender but for this i sent it out to be CNC bent on this guy (+/- 0.050" :P )
Image

After i get the frame from the CNC bender (in a week or two) I will mount it up to the body and start the rear 4 link with this junk.
Image



What is still up in the air is ful hydro.. or not. As well as air shocks or coil overs, im starting to think coil overs.

Any tips? keep in mind that I want to use it on the street alot, and will drive to the off road spots, some times going 65mph to get there...

it looks like a good project, it should turn out good with as much planning as it loks like your putting into it.

i dont like the frame personally i think you could make something stronger and more functional than 2 paralell tubes all the way around $.02
