76 F100 wheeler build

I'll stop plugging up the other thread and make my own



Started like this, had a 302/np435/dana 21


Built a rear bumper for it shortly after



After a while it got 35's, 4.56 gears, and a rear spool



Got a different daily driver, and this wend under the knife. 63" Chevy rears mounted under the frame, ho72 axle with 14 bolt guts, and some 42's

Yarded this junk out of the front end, and built a front bumper. There's a winch in there, just need to order a fairlead and cut out the hole.



New running gear. 4sexty/np435/203/205

Got the dana sexty set under it, the steering box mounted, and the three link under way






This little guy doesn't let me have too much time to work on it

This thing is looking pretty badass, those tires are CRAZY! If you ever get it road worthy you should swing by one of our meets with it. Your location is only in Black Diamond right? Thats not too far from me.

Slowly been picking away at it. Front has a bunch of flex left, but the fenders need to be chopped more first.











All tucked safely back in its hole

Those tires are crazy on there. I like a lot of sidewall on my tires so those look awesome.

What do you have on the passenger side frame rail mounted by the shock?
Got a picture of the engine cage/shock mount?
How are the road manners?
Do you have a thread on your Truggy?

It's a glorified bump stop. They have 4" of travel and are nitrogen/oil filled. Basically a mini shock that gets progressively stiffer as it compresses.

I'll have to get some pictures of the shock mounts. Still has a ways to go before it gets driven. I ended up selling the truggy when my kid was on the way. I'll post up a link to the new owners thread

Made mounts for the power steering pump. I think I ordered enough junk to make it steer too

Had a thought it might be a bump.

Have a kid on the way myself and trying to get as much done on my CC as I can before the little one shows up.

Cage/shock mount looks great (like all your work I've looked at) probably just be the angle of the picture but looks like it's over the top of the oil fill, would be a pain.

Thanks

Little people definitely manage to suck up most your free time, absolutely worth it though. The cage is over the oil fill, it's high enough above it that it shouldn't be too annoying.



Still waiting on a few fittings for the hydro assist to show up. But I managed to mount the reservoir and get it plumbed, drilled and tapped the steering box, built a steering shaft, built some exhaust, and got the fan mounted
