    Sounds like a decent laundry list of things to do. Sorry to hear about the 300M problem , that is rather untimely. This will be my second rig with a Atlas in it. My first truggy had a 4.1 (or was it 4.3?) it was a long time ago, and my new one has a 3.8. The numbers don't seem that far apart but there is a difference on the trail for sure.
    Oh and I use Imgur for hosting, tried google but half the people could not see my pic's .

    You need to make sure the photos in Google are shared. Once they are, you are good to go. Been using them for years now with no issues

    32 splines for sure, I may just keep with the 1350 yokes to hope drive shaft changes are little to none but I may go flanges as they seem to be a little faster to change out the drive shaft.

    Go flanges much stronger. I was blowing yokes up now no problems after switching to flanges. Lots more beef if you had both in your hand I had to change seals because the flanges are thinker around the splines.

    I'm at 110" and pretty happy with it don't really see me changing it anytime soon. most everyone I wheel with is 105-114 and the 105 is a little short and really need water to help on big sh*t... the 114 is a little long but front digs help lot.

    Iím was right at 110. I think the font axle will sit in a really nice spot in the new engine if I push it out to more like 112. Im trying to decide if thatís too much length for 38s. Iím hoping this will be the last time I rebuild the front end.

    are you planning on going bigger tires? how's the approach and departure angles? but again if everything fits it I would just... send.... it!

    got a chance to work on the buggy a little last night... and good thing I am going through things... found that I had no bolts holding the trans to my cross member and I cracked the cross member as well... oops lol

    anyways the T case is coming out tonight or tomorrow then I am going to cut about 3ft of the TJ frame out on each side and replace it with 2x4 3/16 and I should be about to suck it in like 3" on each side.

    anyways ill get some pics once I start cutting

    Right!!!


    Worked on the buggy again last night, got the t-case out, cut the drivers side frame out. I did take a measurement at the widest point and it was 42.5Ē.

    Well decided too take more of the frame out and go past the front link mounts I would have took the last 2 ft out but that a lot more work with motor mounts and shock hoops and so on... so itís staying... for now lol so why I did this is because the frame straight in this area vs where I 1st cut it was still kicked out some

    I did get the new frame rail fitted up and built a new rear upper link mount but for got to take a photo of that!

    so far no.. the pass side will be a little more work to fit the t-case, battery, and 2piece drive shaft mount but knock on wood!

    you'll have to come by and tell how im doing it wrong and drink my girl beer! lol

    Driver side is getting closer, I have to redo the rear upper link mount but I have a game plan for that! I cut the old mount off and tack it where I think it will end up at

    Dang it! and Congrats! Are you looking for new or slightly pre-owned?

  32. #392
    If you're looking for new I was quoted a decent price from skinny pedal racing on pirate. I'm looking for used myself, budget wise, but will likely end up going new from skinny pedal racing if I can't find a good used one soonish.

    The buggy is looking great! Should be some good upgrades you'll appreciate.

    Still working on this thing had the front suspension done with a 3 link but a buddy was over and we dropped it to full bump and we are pretty sure I can get a 4 link in there.... so Iím now working on that.

    Sold my front coil overs to hope to get some 2.5s coil overs up front down the road, ended up finding a deal on some air shocks so for now I am going to move the rear 14Ē shocks up front and up the air shocks in the back until funds for 2.5s later down the road.

    The rear suspension is tack up waiting for my atlas to get here to check clearances for the rear drive shaft, trans cross member is tack up again waiting on the atlas to check clearances, all the flooring mounts are welded in... I think Iím getting closer but the list is still long
