Zuk Buggy 2.0

I guess I've got enough parts gathered, it's time to start a thread for the new buggy. I had a little glitch in custody, so the old Zuk had to be sold to get my son.



Had a little left over, so I ordered the best axle parts in rock crawling from Jesse Haines. He shipped me a pair of Trail Gear housings, 14" Spidertrax rotors, RCV outers and 4 Pistons Willwood calipers. I decided to run the same drivetrain as the last buggy with a little more power.





Parts list includes-
2004 GTP Series III
AW4/300
LP 4.56 Yukon 3rds with Grizzly Lockers
H1 Portal outers/ Trail Gear housings
42" Treps on Procomp Vapor IIs
And a little Zuk sheetmetal


Wanted a little more backspacing, but didn't have the money for forged so I grabbed these.



Sourced a mangled tub for a few bucks



Started on the subframe





Set the drivetrain in to start on crossmembers





Hope to start the A pillar tomorrow, and measure the housings to be cut down.

Some Yukon goodies came in today. A pair of LP 4.56 3rds stuffed with Grizzly lockers.

I got 8 tubes knocked out before taking a lunch break.

Got the housings cut down, all of my link/shock mounts, and 3 low backs for the new whip yesterday. Guess I need to make some progress on the Cs.

One more thing knocked off the list. Hope to get the drivetrain mounted this weekend.

Did my best Liquid Iron Industries impersonation today with the engine skid/motor mounts, and got the rear crossmember in too.

Keeping the hack job theme, I picked up a hack doved hood. I hate welding sheetmetal, so that part is at least already done. Still needs work, but it's a start.

Got the hoops in this morning. Then my arbor adapter stripped on the notchmaster, so I'm done for the day.

Fully welded the underside, put Barnes4wd gussets on each frame outrigger, shortened shock hoops 3.5", and added a few more tubes. "Technically" the motor pulls right out of the top. Gotta drill the flexplate, and drop the motor back in. Then rework the headers a smidgen, and get seats mounted in the front, so I can figure out how long to make the stern.
