This thread may jump around a bit while I get it caught up, this has been a back burner build for the last few months so it's been randomly worked on off and on.

This thing started life as a full frame yota pick up, leafs front,4 link on air cannons in the rear and a cage that was nearing the end if its life.

After we rolled Ray's buggy out most of our group has been stepping up their game. Scot was no different,choosing to let me have free reign on rebuilding the yota into something that would keep up between the rock trails.

First thing to go was leafsprings followed quickly by the rest of the frame from the cab forward..and then the rear section

The drivetrain was mounted high up in the frame, getting it moved back and down was key to getting weight distribution right.

Missing a few pictures here, chopped out the firewall and floor from cowl to the backwall.

New .188 wall front rails and rocker bars. Also playing with motor placement.

Main tubes in, working on getting tubes in to base shock mounts off.

Transmission hanger, you can also see the start of the subframe for the link mounts coming together.

Starting the front hoops and bracing. Majority of the bracing in this one is 1.5 diameter .095 tube in an attempt to keep weight down, but the main bars are mixed .188,.120 wall 1.75 dom.

This one will give you an idea how far back the motor has been set.

Sway bar will tuck in the front tube here.

This thing is looking amazing. Your tube work and placement are perfect. Can’t wait to see what this thing does. There’s a reason you got full reign and it’s in the pics.

Back from the dead...or broke...whatever.

This rig pretty much got shoved to the far side of the back burner. Few parts starting to roll in now and it has been pulled out and I have been jamming on it to get it going while I can.

Random pic dump
