    Another one-off

    I have been wanting to do a transverse leafsetup for quite some time, after a few "prototypes" I finally have a solid setup. Just some cleanup and Delrin spacers to replace the bronze bushings, but it will get there.







    Got some old school radius arms built....


    Now it needs an equally sweet old school body....

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    Very interesting idea, how well does it flex? I saw the first pic. Can you throw some wheels on it for a better idea?

    Flexes fine, the center pivots and the leaf flexes as much as a leaf does. right now the shock I have mocked up on it limits way to much, but I will iron that out

    It is not for a comp rig, it has another intended use

    Just a little more done...

    Here is the lid
    Yet to be added: suicide doors, headers, side pipe/sliders, visor.
    The nose has been severely reworked, shortened in back, pinched, and lengthened in front, oval rear window in progress. The grill is a reworked FJ grill.


    This will roughly be the ride height
    Transverse front leaf
    Radius arms
    Triangulated top link will be replaced with a track bar
    Shooter shackles
    Since this has funky suspension, you can imagine finding shocks to fit is a challenge, with the shooter shackles the axle drops more than it compresses, so the correct size shock is tricky... You can barely see it but I have one rear shock made, three more to follow, I will post the build on them later.









    Still plenty to do, yes the frame rails are long in front, stay tuned there is a method to my madness.
    Wood flat bed, metal edging, stake pockets, back rack, and ????

    This is purely being built to be a cool truck, I am tired of the comp only attitude
    Another budget build, only $50 in it to date not much more to buy, I pretty much have everything from the interior to the winch and all electrics, time on the other hand...............

    The force is strong with this one. I like.

    "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson

    Thanks all.. I needed a break to build something just for the sake of building something fun.

    The mechanical lunacy is part of the fun with this, more lunacy to come
