PostSubject: Whats Your Plans ??   Wed Oct 07, 2009 9:11 pm

Just wondering who all is diving into a winter project


hopefully..........Im working 3 jobs right now, one full time 8-5 m-f and two self employment all the rest of my time to try and make it all happen.

Im gonna keep the old GMC "Mud Monkey" as my daily driver, and tow vehicle.(and back up if no other Chevys run in the street top 5 next year)

I have the old Rampage II Buggy (Dodge D50 tube buggy), I have had some guys tell me when it was orange and that it was an awesome buggy in its day, Im kinda just going through it and cleaning up some fabrication work and such a little bit, and building an engine to drop in it and then mock up the driveline, hope to be pushing 700hp out of a sprayed 383 stroker, Powerglide w/trans brake,205 transfer, and some nice free spinning differential/axle setups (custom secret...LOL), so power to weight should be pretty good I hope, this buggy only weighs about 1500lbs without powertrain......

Lots of friggin work, then find or build a trailer next spring.

I could use all the feedback and advise you guys care to give, I know enough to get me in trouble but Im sure those of you who have been doing it longer than I have can help me along the way, but I guess really as long as I can keep a smile on my face with it then its all done right.......

Things I definitly need help with:

1 - Where to get Paddle tires ? (anyone have good used ones ?)

2- I need a 4 link suspension expert to give me pionters how to set it up. Prefer someone that can come look at it, incase I need to move any mounts.

3- $$ I need lots of that

Got some wheels, and tires, wouldnt mind trading or selling the tires for some Boggers though, but they will still work I think.

Also got some caliper assembly mounting bracketts welded to the rear axle and bolted up the calipers did some work on the Pink Removal...LOL.....here are some build pics.
