Finished off the bottom rails and started lacing it all up.


I wanted a place to store a cooler and/or toolbox so came up with this. Still have to stitch weld it in, but you get the idea.


Hopefully tomarrow night I can get the rear finished up and start on the front.

i like how it blends rockcrawler with trophy truck in a unique pacakge. It has a modern look that resembles something an automobile company would have rendered if they were to build a concept vehicle.

i'm so impressed with it's aesthetics that i didn't even notice what the specs are on it. Axles motor t-case tranny etc. i see that it is a rear engine car.

It has a 2.0 liter Vitara engine that I am going to turbo once I get it all up and running again. Currently it has the Vitara OD automatic trans. and t-case but I am swapping them out for a 700R and 4 speed atlas. The axles are homebuilt 9 inches flipped upside down of course.

It's a very lightweight motor but still has good power. It will have about 200 with the turbo. I had the motor in my old car and it would do 80+ through the desert. Until I find a Scat V4 this is staying.

I guess I'm stupid but why couldn't that top plate have been straight again? I know you said to follow the urvature of the tube but I still don't get it.

This is just a hobby for me so it is personal, but everything has a price, and this won't go cheap.
