Can anyone help me with how you install the rear window, I know it's not glass, but to you have it setup before you weld the tubes in , then just manuver it into place, or is there some other way?
If you look closely you'll see that about a 3" square or so aove where the tube comes through the window is a diff. color. When I have seen lexan windows and cages set up like this, they typically have a U cut out of the window so that it can be slid up from under the cage and set in place. They then use 2 pieces (what I believe are the off colored ones in your pic) to fill the gap up top.
Clear as mud w/ that explanation huh? Steve
I've heard that that truck is pretty much all show and no go, the cantilever binds pretty bad when going through the stroke, and it (obvously) doesn't see much off road use. Can someone confirm/deny this?
When I saw it at SEMA it definately wasn't off road built. It had a bunch of CNC billit stuff all over it to show their capabilities. If I remember right CNC alum upper and lower control arms. CNC aluminum trailing arms for the cantilever. Just lots of shiny stuff that looked machined very thin and small. Delicate would be the word...
The truck was built for the S.E.M.A. show thats why all the polished aluminum arms.I talked to Chris last week and they have already built new upper and lower arm to replace the aluminum ones,not that they broke,but the lower wouldn't last, the upper was probably marginal.He said he'd possibly like to run an MDR race with it only because his son is into the whole truck scene. Chris himself only wants to do it for his son. He says he's over the race scene,he's put in his time.
I do know he is getting ready to lift his personal H.D. (long travel coil-over) so I'm guessing he might need his regular cab truck back to drive around. I waiting for him to drive up to my shop in it !
