I'm gonna skim over some of the pictures up till now.........Mostly because I whore myself out enough, and really Im too lazy to post them all.

My boys do a shit ton of the work, and they're building a heep with all my sissy ass 1 ton shit I have leftover, but on this day, my boy tripped over some rusty metal, filleted his leg, 11 stitches, and wanted to go back anyways to mock up the body.




Its a skinny bitch.

Oh yeah...........Specs............


Its a K5......(obviously, if you havent figured that out, you should go back to jeeps)

5 ton rocks. Steering both ends.
LQ9/th400/np205
Cantilever front with coilovers and bypasses, double triangulated 4 link
Trailing arm rear, double triangulater 4 link.
4 seats. Full body with glass, narrowed 14", doved another 12" per corner.....Lifts off monster truck style, so basically a tube buggy.

Shooting for 20" belly on the 46"(true height) tires that are on it, but its adjustable because of the suspension in a few minites to adjust ride height indefinetly without messing with shocks. Building 3 sets of rims, 17s to get some 40" stickies, 20" double beadlocks for the 46s. and 20" double beadlocks for some 54" Claws.

Programmed a new grill/rad support......Plasma table and dimples.......





Sitting on stands in front of my boys Jeep.......Its a pickup bodied YJ, stretched 18" in the back, 60/70 getting links, and a supercharged 3800.
Currently sitting on some well used 44" Hawgs on beadlocks because I had them lying around.

The boys got the frame stripped, and we hauled it over.......



Then we realized how fucked up K5 frames are, and scrapped that plan. Went out to my collection of Chevy "stuff" and came back with a 1 ton frame. Much better.




It seems to bea little big though



That would be my younger boy with the plasma fixing it right up though.




And because we measured a few times, the fenders fit just right too.

So next up I needed a couple of wheels to fit shit up..........
Since I cant just go buy wheels.........I made some.

10 lug semi wheels....Cut the centers out by bolting the wheel to the hub, and while my boy spun it slow, I worked the plasma.....Instant lathe.




Cut the center out of some 17s.



The hub has a flat face, so used it for alignment, spent a bunch of time with a tape measure, tack, then bolt it back to the spindle, and spin it with a dial indicator, tacking and hammering until it was good enough.......




This shit cracks me up though...........Somewhere I have a pic of a toyota knuckle inside of one of these knuckles too........

Notched the frame a little, and stuffed the diff to full bump



And the boy put the 3rd in.





Much lower and I'd need to put a hood scoop in for my pinion.



Dug out my pile of parts too.........

Some of my favorite pics of this shit are my boys wrenching.......They're better than 95% of people that I know.





And the first mockup with an engine block and trans in.......This is where the decision to go right hand drive came in.
