Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

Is that laser cut? Everything looks awesome. Will it be ready for this weekend?

I used to swear by all the old skool fab methods - torch, hammer, band saw, drill press, etc., but nothing beats CAD/laser.

Ah I should have looked closer, you can kind see the flack on the edges, Very Cool Project, I really dig it. I think those Lariat wheels would look pretty cool Gold or Bronze with the matte paint.

I like the wheels, but I'm in the hunt for some Gordon's. I need a tad more off-set and I will score two more inches of up travel. It would be almost 18" up front and i think i'd be pretty happy with it.


Here's a iPhone mount I made to hook to a suction cup mount. Now I can take vid and its a button push away from you tube.

I had a chance to check out Erics truck at TDS this past weekend. Top notch! I drooled over it for about 20mins...

Thanks. I appreciate it.
It's already in the garage completely torn down for prep. Our big Baja Extravaganza is at the end of the month.
I'm rebuilding all 6 shocks, new spherical bearings and rodends in the arms and springs are already off to Deaver to be rebuilt and tuned a bit more to hold more weight.

As soon as I get back from Baja, its getting a cage. After nearly 6000 off road miles in the last year and a half the body is starting show its age. I can feel the floor under my feet "beer canning" when its running thru the bumps...
Links and coil overs are in the future for the rear to.

Its on a Baja hiatus right now. I'm bandaid'ing it for some out of town friends to take to the desert at new years.

Its waiting in line behind the TTBXJ to go under the knife.
After 15K miles of dirt the frame and body flex to much and it cant be driven the way I want to anymore.
We'll be cutting all the tube work off the front as well as all the front sheet metal/core support ect. Caging the cab and front end.

Collecting parts to link the back as we speak.

Yep.
We need to figure out where we are with some jobs we have in right now, but this one is coming back in soon.
We just had a new baby and my little Manx buggy isn't that infant friendly...
