Nice. I like the fact you loose the "ears" that usually hang below the frame too. By triangulated, you mean pushing the axle mounts out as far as possible?

Yes, Dave ( buck on 40s) said when he triangulated his it made a huge difference yn the geometry. I guess it handled a ton better. So we will see

Hes also sending me one of his new Billet bling bling sway bar setups that hes having made for the defenders.. pics to follow..

------ Follow up post added March 28th, 2010 09:31 PM ------

Also those weld on ears that i used are made by ballistic fab, and are like 20 bucks or soemthing like that.. all laser cut and very sexy..

Wow. Really nice fab work - looks so clean. I've been following the build on pirate as well and was shocked at the folded frame pics that buck posted. Never thought the rover frame was that thin. Makes sense to plate the mount areas.

Like Randy I'm very interested to see how that sway bar comes out.

OK more updates.. the new fuel cell is now Plumbed mostly... i still need to finish the lines at the pump, but that 5 minutes...

Anyways as you can see it think it came out extremely clean. I ran it through the inside bed rail support, so it out of the way and protected.

Also heres a pic of of where in gonna cut the fenders...

I like your routing of the lines, but you know you can't fit a tailgate without mods to now right? Just asking because someone I"ll leave nameless made a bottom mount for his trailer lid hinge in a similar location and forgot to take into account the tailgate clearance properly. But I know you are smarter than that.

Can't wait to see it cut - then it'll "feel" stretched to me.

Oh and I love that a-arm extension!

OK heres some shots of the rear with the tailgate on, and with a 110 bench placed in the back, where in gonna put it for passengers in the rear..

Also heres some pictures of the plumping, I decided to reuse the factory filter, so this is how it looks...

Also the cut! heres the pics of the preliminary cuts i still have some touching up to make it look perfect, but heres a teaser...

I also cut it just short if the lights and cover so it can all be be hidden when the plastic light cover is on...

OK heres a mock up of the rear coil over mounts.. REMEMBER KEY WORD MOCK UP>>

Its all just tacked, the lower arm supports need to be cut down, gussets need to be made, and there will be a cross support bar to the other one that goes through the tub and will also double as the rear seat harness mounts..

I'll bitch..
I think you should add a tube on each side of the hoop down to the frame (plated of course) There's gonna be a hell of a load and flex there!! Especially if you want to keep up with me in the fast stuff!

Coming along nicely. Is there any science to the angle of the coils?
