    Project 2.0

    Ok so the time has come to make some changes to the jeep after our trip to St. George I wanted a buggy that was lighter and had better visibility.

    The plan is:

    Pulling the tub off and tubing it out
    I'll be keeping all the drivetrain and the suspension mounts to save time
    I'll be rising the t-case to get a flat belly
    I'll be keeping the jeep hood and grill
    The chassis will be 50 or 52" wide
    The goal is to add space to for the dogs to ride on the long roads to trail heads
    Sold the rear air shocks and going with 14"2.0 coilovers

    Here is what it looked like before this rebuild





    Pulled the cage


    Dash pull and tub is about ready to come off

    The tear down part is my favorite. You get so much progress done real quick. We can push each other to get the rigs done. What are your plans as far as the cage/style?
    Need Tundra parts....Engine...Got any?

    Tear down is so easy! lol i was just talking about this VS how long it takes to get it up and runing and yes we can i am calling out few of the other slow guys on here to get theirs done as well! ill be going for a 2 seater top part of the cage but with add space at the belt line area. i really like the jims Garages chaissis but mixed with som goat build lines

    FWIW, my buggy is 50" wide and while it does work well in tight spots I really wish it were closer to 54" wide. Making room for two dogs and two adults in a 50" wide chassis will be tough without adding 10" or more to the back.

    Yeah your right, not set on width just yet have kinda started a chassis and it's at 50" but it will not be hard to adjust

    I agree. Can't wait to see what you come up with Jared!

    Oh and snorting alcohol is a great way to feel like your nasal passages are on fire for the rest of the evening. At least that is how I felt when I was talked into trying it a few years back.

    Yeah Wes, you're right. That was a little harsh. Maybe we should start with something small, like helping him learn how to tie laces, so he can finally get out of those velcro shoes. :derp:
