The rear will be 4 linked and a stand up Pede tranny will go in the middle.

And I think this may end up being an axle over leafs set up.

Thats it for today.

The rear axle is not attached yet, I just put it there to give an idea of the wheel base (11.5").

The top links in the rear are stil wrong, but it give the basic idea. I am also going to try and turn down a set of TLT shocks, and mout the fronts with out springs (mid stroke) and the rears with internal springs for a drop set up.

I have switched the plan from a 1.9 Land Rover to a 2.2 Power Wagon. I think that the hard stuff is done now. I just need to add a couple mounting plates for electronics and make an internal cage to attach the interior to. And the build a winch and figure out all the electronics. I will have to run this of a DX 6 because I want a proportional winch and maybe some lights.

hey Nick

This truck will only be used for the scale comp in Augusta, not our local comps. I have the red buggy for that, but hopefully I will have time this week to build a new 2.2 Tuber for Moab.

hey there

the steel frame is 1/4" by 5/16". The longer dimension is horizontal. It take alot of heat to get that to bend as tight as I wanted. But I do not have a brake in my shop, maybe that would have helped.

The truck runs and crawls. It does very well but I hate the way that the front shackles stick out. If you square up an approach they just anchor into the rock.

The front end needs to be 4 linked too.

Here is todays update;





I just need some internal springs for the front and make the whole thing 5 to 10mm longer so that it fits the body.
