    Figured since I'm now part of the NC community, I'd share my build thread on here. It's a pretty basic buildup, with just a slight overkill on most parts.

    Build:
    -94 4wd pickup cab, 22re, W56, duals with a Marlin adapter, all 21 spline
    -92 2wd pickup frame, stripped completely
    -RUF bastardized leaf packs, hung by a homemade hanger
    -Double triangulated 4 link rear with dovetailed frame and TJ front coils
    -85 front housing, V6 third, Detroit, Longs, Long hub gears, FJ80 rotors
    -No idea what year rear housing with shaved drain plug and a welded V6 carrier in a 4cyl third
    -4-dee inch iroks on Beadlocks
    -Summit 12 gallon fuel cell, emptied by a Ford E2000 pump
    -Sliders frenched into rockers
    -Gnarly ass spider gear shift knob
    -5 sticks of tube bent into the mix with toolbox, cooler and dry goods bin storage in the back
    -Warn 9000 on the front bumper
    -battery relocated to next to fuel cell with a dash mounted master kill switch


    From October 24, 2011 until the Wednesday may 23rd, I worked pretty much around the clock 5-6 days a week. Worked 730-5 every day, then off to the shop until 2am, which towards the end, turned into 3-4am. Then a few weekends throughout the summer to get it to where it is now

    I'm being a dousche and linking the thread from Pirate, mostly because there's a million pictures and halfway through the build I started using Photobucket and all the previous pictures were uploaded from my laptop, which is dead. But you don't have to join or register to read it, but be warned, it is PICTURE HEAVY! And overly in depth.

    Enjoy:

    Thanks. In the Brier Creek area, for now. Convenience is nice, but I miss my seclusion.

    Good deal, possible plan to the flats the weekend after New Years, but that's still up in the air. I'll keep ya in mind

    I'd like to link the front now, but she's gonna stay the way she is for a while. Next winter it'll go under the knife. Possibly later this winter if I get a wild hair up my ass, but who knows haha

    This might be an odd question but how long can you run on 12 gallons of fuel on the trail? Kinda of wondering what size to go with in the runner.

    Wheeled 2 whole days at Rausch in July, on one tank. Some of the day was spent at camp fixing a buddy's buggy, but we covered a LOT of ground that weekend. Same with Gore, VA, ran the whole weekend(which included dumping a shit ton of gas out of my vent the first night there on a night run), one day was also only about 2 hours of wheeling. With a 22re you'd be surprised at how little it uses on the trail vs on the street. 12 gallon cell and keep a 5 gallon jug in the tow rig, saves you space and weight.

    Haven't updated in a while, some of this is really old(and copied from my Pirate thread)

    I moved my ram mount to the front of my front axle and put some tube in front of it and took a leaf back out of my front leaf pack. now sits 23.5" to the frame on 40s, at 8 psi, run 3 psi all around on the trail.

    other than that, here's a few pics from Harlan Fall Crawl 2013. Girlfriend wanted to drive it, so I put her in the seat in lower rock garden

    Before she got into the part where I was actually going to have to spot her a little, I stopped her, said something broke in the front, shut it off and get out. She thought she really broke something, but I just wanted to ask her to marry me!

    Did some cardio tonight and shaved a few more pounds. There was mud, EVERYWHERE.

    Little more, still plan to cut a few inches further, leaving from the door jams forward, for now. the rest will go when I link/stretch the front, probably a year and a half from now. I know, I should just build damn chassis already, just don't have the space at the time.

    Saturday I'll be trimming a little more and starting on a layout for a floor and seat mounts

    Haven't updated in a bit, here goes

    Had a plan for seat mounts, so I made these

    ai895.photobucket.com_albums_ac151_kouperstein2_Truggy_20Remod665f0def891ef82e7ccae831cea1e515.jpg

    Started laying out the cage
    ai895.photobucket.com_albums_ac151_kouperstein2_Truggy_20Remod563ea04246256290bcef33af89062e33.jpg

    This seemed too high for my taste, plus didn't work out with the cowl how I wanted
    ai895.photobucket.com_albums_ac151_kouperstein2_Truggy_20Remoddb2f3e5dc0fd7216e54b4767002ca14f.jpg

    So I cut 3/4" off the tubes and this was money

    And then my seat mount idea

    It was a nice simple idea, but wouldn't allow the seats to be supported how I wanted. And I wanted to use my old seat brackets.

    Tubes are rough cut to length

    But I did sucker the wife into coming over to the shop to make some wedding decor, figured I'd work on the truggy, I was wrong.
    ai895.photobucket.com_albums_ac151_kouperstein2_Truggy_20Remodaf90091cfe1999a8524b4cb71232571c.jpg

    This is what I came up with for the dash frame, used the pieces I had already bent

    Friday night I got the wife to come hang out, she brought her vodka and beer for me! Pulled dash frame out and fully welded it

    Then glued it to the sliders

    I really wanted to hammer it out and go wheeling this weekend at The Flats, but I started this renovation with the sole intent of not having a deadline. The rest of the truck I've done with my OCD level of doing everything right, and tonight I got frustrated with one thing, knowing it was going to slow everything down, I backed off. There's no point for me to rush to go wheel locally. My original intent was to take my time, not burn myself out and so everything the way I want it, not rush to get it out on the trail, which I did initially, which is why it's all cut apart now, to fix my rush finish-up job. Whole pace will slow up once again, the rest of my summer is busy, getting married in 2 months, don't need to stress myself with this.

    But she sits in the parking lot, right outside my door, so it won't be completely back-burner'd and forgot about.
