    the X Chassis and red buggy both run johnny joints. I have been doing lots of reading on different forums and vendor and manufacturing sites as to which one is the best. the johnny joints seem to run about $200 more for the set. my wife tells me to go ahead and get the johnny joints if that is what I want. haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet.

    i run heims. for a rock crawler they last years before they get loose. hell if youre light like mine the 7/8x3/4 stuff is perfect or go big 1.25 and you'll never wear them out.
    the rebuildable stuff is a pain in the ass, i'd rather just unthread a heim and throw in a fresh one

    we have decided to set the motor back about 6" to help balance the buggy and also so we can fit the radiator under the hood and not have it hanging off the front like before. also going to cut the frame right before the shock tower. amazing how a simple cage redo has turned into a major rework of the buggy

    not much of an update but some pictures; moved the engine back to help with weight distribution and to clean it up so we could get the radiator under the hood. to be able to do so had to cut out part of the floor pan but plan on putting it back in. Now I need to pick up some links that have my heims in them (thanks Kenny) to start the reassembly.
