    The Nissan Patrol 4-seat Buggy - Phase III

    UPDATES will be posted on Pirate4x4:
    http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/jeep-...s-wannabe.html

    So, last December (2010), I threw a rod bearing in the Toyota 22RE I was using and decided to upgrade to a V8.
    The more that I thought about it, I decided to just start from scratch and build a 4-seat buggy that the whole family could ride in.

    The new buggy plans are:
    6.0 HO Engine out of an Escalade
    - Kevko pan
    - Hooker Headers
    4L60E upgraded with more / better clutches, corvette servos etc... (Circle D did this for me)
    stock torque convertor (gone thru by Circle D Specialties)
    Atlas II, 3.8, 32 spline, 1350 yokes, 0 degrees
    AA short Adapter with VSS
    Front Axle - Spider9 with ~50 degree steering and True Hi-9
    Rear Axle - Spider9 with True Hi-9
    Chassis will be a 54" Twisted Customs 4-seat knock-off, slightly modified for my likes
    Hood and grill will be Nissan Patrol
    Mastercraft seats and harnesses
    Willwood brakes
    Ron Davis 24 x 19 radiator
    40" Krawlers (stickies) on Raceline beadlock wheels (thats the plan at least for now)

    That's the plan for now at least. I want to have the chassis done before the December 2011 Clayton Trip so i can give Busa his TC chassis back on the way up.

    The t-case dropped down a few degrees

    I changed the T-case back up to 0 degrees for a better two piece driveshaft angle at the bearing

    The adapter bolts were too long - they bottomed out:

    I like the yellow lines but I think I'm going to add a window "vent" bar coming down from the top "A" pillar bend. I need something to intersect down there in the door.

    Update - I got the subframe done - at least all of the bends and notches, just need to add all of the 1.25" small bracing.

    why not more of a pie cut narrow job on the hood, so the cowl wouldn't stick out so far from the edges?
