Its not a "box" by any means as just about anyone can knock out a box on sketchup just by toying with it. This.....took a little bit more creativeness. Tis' a frame design for my truck, of exactly how I want it to look when done...........just not completed quite yet. needs more crossmember strength built in, and its not to "spec" but **** close.

is that the fuel cell in the back at the end of the frame?take your time on it man you will get it,it just take money ,time, and balls to mess with frame work and all.you will get it though.

yah, thats the cell, and where the things like reverse up to the mounting position will be pointy, just couldnt get it on sketchup. looks like ill prolly use a front clip from another truck, or something like a camaro. i COULD use a frame from a grand marquis but I want this **** to be NICE.

lamont, i cant wait to get this motor done man. its about to be on ;)

nah im not even gunna try and use the frame. some old guy trying to build an offroader will buy it for a couple hundred if anything. I hope to buy the front clip next month. and you said that one place has pretty cheap metal right?

That would've taken like under an hour in Rhinoceros :laugh:

The limitations of SketchUp are far reaching, but it's just not made to do really intensive design work.

3 to 4 hours, :wow:, u did a great job

point being? I said this was some sketchup work. not tell me how fast it can be done in other programs work. Thank you, go to bed.

LCA's arn't JUST A-arms....

Jeeps have 4 control arms for solid axles, top and bottom, or Upper and Lower control arms.

Inventor 10 is just pure nerd ***. Unfortunately, I'm not a complete nerd so it's just a good program. :)

Sittin it on bags or Coils? I would make it a 4 link too.

saywhat?
01-28-2007, 10:41 AM
bags......and it will be linked, i just dont feel like working on it anymore right now. the lower bars and all bag mounts are done for the back, just need to finish the upper link bars and mounts

Your sketchup work is amazing. Did you check out the box build pics? Im loving this design so far...

You got way lots of time on your hands. That 3D cad mock up is to cool:eek:

I almost want to see if it turns 360 Degrees and rotates.
