Hi, me and my buddy Bart are building our first offroader. We plan to do some winchtrophy's and offroad rally's. Just for fun, on a low budget.
Here are some pics from the build so far, feel free to comment. We have to learn a lot....
This was the start. Axels from a 1986 Nissan Patrol 3.3D type R
And a LWB Sammy...
At the rear, we want a 4-link, in front will be the Nissan leaf springs, SPOA.
Rear axle cleaned and started at the 4-link:
Removed some rust...
Testfit of the rear axle:
Calculated the 4-link:
4-link done !!!
Rear axle rebuild and modified for disc brakes:
Started the cage:
Front leafspring hangers:
Chassis extention and front leafspring hangers:
Front axle cleaned and ready for SPOA:
Front axle ready:
On it's feet (in the rain...)
This is where we are right now. Next is finish the exocage, rocksliders, putting airshocks in the rear, Trailmaster shocks in front...
Engine & drivetrain will be from a Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero 3L V6, but I haven't found a decent one yet....
