Sorry for the hideous quality phone photo. The driveline is resting on the cross member. I'll have to fix that.



Slapped on some new KO's:



Opened up the fender using a deer carcass...



Next up mounting and welding the front suspension, steering and gussets. I also need to install the VDO gauges, amps, and sub.

I would like to first off say SWEET!!! Man the X really looks good!!!

Next... I am making the formal request to see some pictures of it in action!! Let's see some of that rear articulation on some rocks!! :D I'm sure Colorado has a few :p ;) lol

When do you plan on starting with the front end? What kind of steering system are you going to use? I have the Calmini one and it held up amazingly well!

Thanks!

The arms, gussets, and steering that I have were built by Spencer Low. I'm heading to the dez on Saturday. Playing around in the St. George/Mesquite area.

My sister used to live in Mesquite but move to St George about a year ago... they are close to each other.

Looks like you had a fun trip!!! So was the windshield cracked prior to the trip or was this a shooting mishap? LOL :p

Yeah that windshield was smoked last year. I think it's the 3rd one in that X and I've only owned it for four years. I used to live in St. George. Lots of fun trails and no Rangers.

Hey Lance, your build is looking good. I like the bumper and KC lights. Did you buy your gauges yet? If not look into SPEEDHUT via the link is on my site. I can hook you up with a good deal. If there are any other parts you need that I might have let me know. I have a bunch of old race stuff.
