91 Zuk Buggy

Picked up a new toy, and I'll be posting the tinkering to personalize it. So far it needs a quicker orbital, rear floor pan, and prefer an aluminum roof. The seats are a touch high, so I'm going to look at lowering them.

91 Zuk Buggy
Built 1.3/5 speed/6.5-1 t case
82 Scout 44s/spooled/5.38s
3 link front with Rancho 14" coilovers
dbl tri 4 link rear with fox air shocks
37x14 iroks on champion beadlocks
apprx 2600lbs

I'm going to put it on scales to get an actual number once it's done. Here are a few pics












pulled the skins and seats so I can lower the seat mounts. Picked up some Crow harnesses, 2:1 steering quickener, and a coolant over flow bottle from Smileys. Still need to pick up a new orbital mount and splined input. The old one was rigged and bound up, this will be a lot cleaner.

Are you putting a rear seat in it?

Yes, but not immediately. I may swap fuel cells as well, just have to see how I can get the most storage room as possible out of the rear. Brian built it with a ton of room compared to the YJ. I may only put one small one in there for just Draven and put a swag offroad bin beside him. For now I'm just going to get the steering 100% satisfied, lower my seat, and strap in the fuel cell. Jackie is almost a foot shorter and doesn't really need the room, but my head is too close for comfort.

I also started cleaning up unused wiring today. I plan to order a new orbital splined column or whatever they call them, orbital mount, a u joint, and possibly some threaded trick tabs.

Since your wanting a rear seat then that takes care of my next comment. But I'd get the steering figured out. Stick some 37" stickies on it and call it good.

That's the plan, ill try and sell/trade these for some 17s, grab some stickies and peel out.

What was your next comment? I have considered modding the cage to more of a fastback style and just putting a single seat sideways as Draven is really small, and it would make good storage. I've seen a few made that way. For now just gonna skin the floor and wait.

I was gonna say redo the rear of the cage. If you brought the bars from the b pilar straight down to the bar behind the fuel cell it would look 100x better IMO.

I was leaning towards the style Dave G. did Rkik and Kelso's cages. Kick it down about a foot behind the B, then angle the spreader to cover the rear using two bends, then go from lower rear angled in and up to support the rear spreader. If that makes sense...

So what are you trying to figure out with the steering column spline count? I saw it over on pirate and I'm honestly confused.....

The steering column you bolt directly into the orbital. I need one and there is a $14 difference between PSC and Trail Gear, also the TG is 1.25" shorter which is another plus. The downfall is TG and Poly Performance can't tell me the spline count other than stock Toyota. Due to the location I will need a ujoint not a coupler as it's a slight angle. The PSC is 13/16 36 spline, the trail gear doesn't say and with over 300 views apparently no one with a Toyota does either. Maybe I need to call a dealership and ask?

Does low range sell the trail gear column? If so they normally can answer any question I throw them.

Got a different tech on the phone today, he measured the TG column and said it's 5/8 36 spline. So it looks like it's not going to be an easy ujoint to find and I'm better off running the psc that I know will work.

Really like this rig. Glad you found what you were looking for. Not sure how evil twin sticks are different from the good ones...

Hahaha, it's a brand. I like how they work, the downfall is sealing the boot. Everyone tie wraps a glove to the case from what I've been reading.
