Let’s try this again. So I stripped the tan zuk of its drivetrain and sold it. Sold the zuk chassis that I built first so I could build one that isn’t based off a body. So I went and picked up some 1 1/2” x 120 wall HREW, built a quick frame table and got to work. This one will look somewhat like the old one but with a few changes. The chassis will be 48” wide by 50” tall and probably around 108”-110” long. Shooting for a 18” belly on 39’s and a 108” wheelbase.

The seats are basically touching each other like the old one. Then threw it up on my moving table to get the motor in place and start on the fire wall and bars behind the seats. 7F7F7892-EA22-4089-849B-144244FD8281.jpegD1CCCEEA-AA83-4833-92E4-A786F7919BCE.jpegA72A9D07-0F79-45E1-89CC-F7004FA6E9AB.jpeg

Got the 40’s mounted up on the beadlocks today. Got the tcase mocked up. Gonna be able to tuck it under the seats pretty good and run a 10” belly like i had hoped to be able to. Got the tires bolted up to the axles and set at 108 wheelbase. This weekend ill start getting the belly built and axles cleaned up. Gonna get it linked first then finish the chassis.

Got to work on it for a couple hours yesterday morning. Got some of the overhead cage done along with the X behind the seat. Hopefully will get to mount my radiator tomorrow and start on the back of the cage. Slowly getting there. Also going to pick up my new motor/trans this coming week.

On the cross bars behind the seats, why didn’t you go all the way to the corner joints on the outside of the cage? Just wondering.

No reason really. Mainly just wanted to be able to get a good weld all the way around them. Hell some of the chassis' you see now a days I've got way more triangulation behind the seat than they do.

I use Pro 1 belts, they are made locally, out towards Stephenville.

If the bars don't line up, and/or intersect a joint, it is not triangulated. They are simply diagonal bars.
