Looks great!!!

What's next on the long list?

 

 

set the engine and tranny in , that will tell me where to mount the body, then mount everthing up, looks like the stock gastank can stay right were its at so that would be good, the rear fender area will need all cut out and modified

Everyone always wants to wheel a hatch, so why not a Justy. Looking cool there!

 

Keep it going, I wanna see a video of this thing in action!

Just buy looking at what hes doing, seems like alot more work to make a decent wheeling justy.

But it wouldn't be running an EJ, nor would it have a Subaru body :grin:

though... I want to see the rear suspension in action, and also hear how it rides... and how the back end handles body roll since there's only 1 center mount point to the spring...

 

I would also suggest the interior of that thing be caged :)

+1, I've never seen any mod like that in action.

IDK about caging it though...It's not going to be a rockcrawler, and that would increase the weight quite a bit. Wouldn't that articulated rear actually prevent a roll-over?

for the events we have around here, if you put a diff body on a frame that wasn't built to handle the weight of the driveline/frame in a rollover, we require a cage. Example: Chevy Luv body on a 1-Ton frame/axles...

nothing mounted will start at the radiator, mount that then set the engine to rad distance then hook up engine tranny driveline to t-case that will tell me were the body to frame will be mounted looks like body need to o back about 5" on the frame as pictured above , fun stuff , make it all fit
