Chev to Jeep Completed with Driver !, Jeep Pics @ end

Post  unixndata on Wed Aug 31, 2011 11:36 pm

Before when i bought it.




after

Tuned the suspension took away the leaver system put in a new 55t motor , now looking for a honcho bullbar.



Still a work in progress

custom shocks and full droop , way better at getting through the tuff stuff.



now ive finished !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Custom suspension , custom battery and speed controler mounts , custom chassis mounting and upgraded shocks and springs. Check the video out @ the end.

This build is around 1000% better than stock. Max ground clearance , lower center of gravity more suspension travel , amazing off road.

Looking forward to rocking with you guys and doing some trails in the near future !!!!











power to tamiya !!

Do you have any torque twist? If it's not too much trouble, would you mind putting up pictures of your link setup because I have horrendous torque twist, so bad the car permanently leans to one side while it's in motion (standard springs). I'm at my witts end trying to figure out how to fix it other than putting my savage springs in it which works but they're a bit TOO stiff.

nice work. Which shocks were they? Are they off a specific car or just some random 3rd party shocks that fit a bunch of standard size cars?

lol haha, thats the missus. I bought it for her for mothers day, she said is was going to be her "hobby" ive used it to sew the kids clothes haha she hasn't used it once.

With the question about the shocks there just standard short course truck shocks but i cut around 3/8's of the spring down so i still have really good ride hight and max twist without the springs being to compressed on one side.

Last night i whent more scale with a driver and a inside cab. Ill post some pics tonight with the cab etc.

Cheers
