View Full Version : ORS's new rock buggy build

March 5th, 2008, 10:34 AM
We are starting with a clean slate. Building a full tube frame, custom rock buggy. We haven?t started too much work on it yet, but the plans for this rig are pretty wicked.

We haven?t come up with a name for it yet, but that will come with time!

The tube chassis will be 1.75? and 1.5? DOM tubing
Some of the drivetrain will be from Baby, our last build (yellow huge 4runner).
-Dual Toy T-cases
-Diamond Axle Front based on FJ80 parts
-T-100 Rear Axle with full float
-5.29?s and ARB?s
New Drivetrain Additions
-2UZ-FE V8 from the Tundra
-Tundra A340 Auto Transmission
It will be a 4 seater
4-link front and rear suspension with 17? Bilstein coilovers
42? TSLs (47?s later on - with some other mods like axles)

We will post updates with pictures and specs throughout the build... :thumbsup: :D

Got the floor and main hoop tubing done and tacked in. Lookin good so far! We have a 3D buggy now so thats an awesome motivator to keep the progress going :)

Unfortunately nothing as of lately, we have been so busy in the shop with customer projects that we haven't had anytime to get the buggy worked on :(
