    On a 1/4 elliptical the 4 link controls the axle, all the leaf pack is doing is replacing the coil.

    It allows for a progressive spring rate , easily adjustable spring rate by adding and subtracting leafs, as well as ride height adjustment with an adjustable shackle.

    Just something to play around with really . Also gives me freedom when designing the back half of the cage without having to worry about coil mounts or coil over hoops

    looks good.

    not to be a critic, i love the look and the direction this is going. but i have to ask. why do none of the arm bars for the doors line up?

    Lol no worries. I actually cut the rear door bars out tonight and re aligned them. I wanted the rear door bars to mount at the same height to the b-pillar as the front doors mounted to the a-pillar just to break up the body line.

    How ever ... I fucked up my measurements on where they mounted the c-pillars so they were no where close to aligning with the rear hoop. But after repositioning they align.

    I was waiting for someone to catch it. They were bugging the hell out of me.

    i loved my 1/4 ellip on my first buggy. it was crazy stable with no sway bar. you can even put short peices of leaf springs under the stack to control the unloading of the rear suspension. its awesome.

    I'll try to get some tomorrow. The only point that the nodes don't align are at the b-pillar now but it is intentional. I plan to add a gusset behind the body skin to distribute the load.

    Your original buggy was actually my inspiration for mine. When you first chopped yours I was up all night reading your build thread.

    As far as the 1/4 elliptical goes. I'm uber excited to play with it. I was torn between the 1/4 elliptical, hydro Rams like ashman was running on his XJ, or a cantilever using hydro Rams. I just wanted to go with something unique that I could play with before I go coilover.

    Door bars realigned and support added , harness bar mocked in, and rear "frame rails" that will hold gas tank, rear shocks, batteries, and spare tire

    I'll try to get some pics in the next few days, I bent up the main roof bars, got everything fully welded, and drove it around the block and onto a trailer for my move to AZ.

    Been caught up in the move since then.

    To do list:
    Skins
    Rear harness bar
    B hoop X
    C hoop X
    Fender bars
    Under hood cage
    Roof needs triangulation
    Boatside skin
    Rear shock mounts
    Permanently mount fuel tank and batteries (ratchet strapped now)
    Rear bench seat
    Spare tire mount
    OBA tank mount
    Rear storage rack
    Window nets
    Light bars
    Mount overhead console
    Paint/vinyl wrap



    Still a long list :-/

    Are you moving back to Tucson? Is love to check this thing out if you are. I really dig the headlight mod and rear windows. Might have to try a similar setup.
    93zj build. 4.0 aw4, 231, 60s, and 37s. Some cutting and some welding.

    Whoa! Hadn't been on here in a long while and am just getting caught up. Hadn't seen that you had cut it. I love the direction you're heading and even more that you're doing something different than most. Keep it up!
