Would anyone be interested in buying the rims on my buggy? I'm looking at going to beadlocks.

Hey guys, no not much to update on. I have made all the engine bolting pionts up and all the mounts on the actual engine so its just a matter of making the joining bars and its got a motor :D . But Im building a trailer atm so thats taking up all my free time to get it done quick. Ill post pics of that and updates when more progress is done on the buggy.

All made from two sheets of 3mm plate, 1 length of 100x50x3.2 RHS, bit of flat bar and the odd bit of sheet and tube for finishing touches. The deck is 3100x1900. Has a 3.5 ton 3 stage ram with tipping kit. 3 ton hubs and stubs with disk brakes and tandem suspension. Spare wheel tucked away with a winch to lift it up and down. Coupling can be adjusted up and down to suit towball height. Loading ramp holders with ramps and locking doors. LED lights all round with side markers. Mini truck alloy guards. Heaps of extra bit I cant even remember anymore its been a long project :shock: lol

I hope you did not build that to be your buggy hauler, it looks sturdy enough to haul a small excavator. Nice work mate, really nice work.

Cool as Ill try measure them up tomorrow for ya, you just after centre distances of the rod ends in the triangle they make? Id recommend making them adjustable between the front and back arm tho and not solid like mine as you can't adjust anything that way, only just a tiny bit.

Mclovin, sorry at took so long again!! Im finally back into it tho this weekend, got the engine on and doing the nerf bars now. I have measured up all the lengths between the rod ends on my front end and are as follows:
Bottom arm pivit to lower Rod end = 500mm
Top arm-
Top front pivit to top rod end on spindle = 440mm
Top back pivit to top rod end on spindle = 425mm
Distance between pivit points on top arm (mounting points on frame) = 370mm

And questions please ask, Ill answer within a day or 2!!

A couple of questions,,, Lachlan,,, Have you got any plans for your trailer?
I need one!! You've got to be proud of it. It looks bloody perfect.
And, Mclovin,, Where the hell have you been. You've got to be mobile by now.
Have'nt heard from you for ages.
