I also installed the Yukon super joints and the front axle shafts.

When I bought the axles second hand they already had chromoly shafts and super joints but they were not installed. I found out that they ordered ford chromoly shafts and super joints and would not work in this axle. It’s funny how god works sometimes because I opened the rear diff cover and it did have 5:13 gears with Detroit Lockers. But from the picture you can tell it was setup incorrectly.

I started a build thread last year but haven’t posted in quite some time, yours looks killer so far, I’m interested to see how solid works brings all the pieces together. I dig those tube ends!

Sorry for the delay in posting, been getting ready for a move.
So I figured out that the 4149 shafts I got with my axle were for actually for a Ford Axle. So I ordered the correct shafts with super joints.

I also started putting all the parts I drew in Solidworks into a chassis design.

I also started cutting out my sub frame assembly. I chose to make my sub frame in this way because I didn’t want to use rectangle tube and have to worry about drilling through both frames to make it even etc. here are a few pictures from me assembling that. It’s a tab and slot design so it can only be assembled one way. Also a picture of the pallet of parts I have for this project. The skid plate is a 3 piece design and can be removed. I also choose to make my shock towers adjustable up or down 3 inches.

Dude... wtf. Killer design work. And a hell of a shop. I almost feel like once you have everything drawn up, you could just hit a button and a fully built rig would just pop out of one of those machines.

Thanks man, more to come, slowly getting all the pictures off my old phone. Doing all of this and moving and putting in a HAAS ST35Y with a bar feeder and a VF4 all at the same time is kicking my a$$.

Haven’t gotten all my pictures off my old phone but here is a picture of the chassis with my wife testing out seat position. It’s coming along very well so far. I made it the chassis large enough for me because I’m 6’3” and I didn’t want to be cramped.

I am not sure how well the adjustable shock mount will work but once I get everything setup the way I want I may weld them in. Haven’t made a decision yet. Here are a couple pictures of cardboard between the mounts and the mounts that weld to the chassis.

New piece of equipment for the shop. Don’t have power yet so I can’t even plug it in and play with it. This is as bad as being a kid at Christmas.

So I've finally gotten moved into my new building. All equipment was moved without much problems. This week I have been able to get some work done on the buggy. It is sitting on all for with suspension in place. I am at 19" off the group with a 113 wheel base. I made some tie rods for the hydro steering but they are 1 inch to short. I copied the extensions that came with the ram. I have some new tie rods made that I'll throw on tomorrow. In the picture the bottom of the tire is 45" from the ground.

Some new tube ends. Thinking about offering these if anyone is interest along with custom length tie rod extensions.

Some of what I’m working on. These tie rod extensions were for a Can-Am defenders but its how I did mine also. I put 7075 inside my lower links after I turned them down a tad to get them to fit ha. That was a bitch.
