Well the engine and tranny are mounted but i am now paused as i need to buy some steel for axle mounting . the engine being in the rear already throws the front end up when i pivot it where i want the axle, so i am going to move it back a bit more that i planned so i have some front end ground contact. I am still not completely sure of what kind of rear tires i will use but aggs and itp mud lites are on the table , i had decided on aggs but the prices are very similar so i would want a better made tire if i am going to already spend 70 bucks per tire . The aggs are 2 ply and the mud lites are 6 and have 3/4" tread verses 5/8" on the aggs.

Got 50 bucks worth of steel and 6010 rod . Hoping to use a quarter of the steel on this project so I can use the rest on other builds. Hope to get some work done this weekend and start enjoying things again.

What size is that? Looks sturdy. I got some 1.25 square tube today myself. Only 4ft worth.

It's 1 inch. Going bigger would have increased my costs by 1/3 or more. It is 1/8" thick so for what I have planned it is very strong.

Will it have an open diff? If not, you might consider a less of traction in the back so one tire could slide in the back while turning, since the front will be so light.
