Is there gonna be any MJ left to it?  Why even use that portion.  It's basically just a floor par and firewall .  Why not go tube all the way?

Jason,
I mentioned that last night when this got started, Timmy said you went into the future and copied him  ;D

Big D.. there is still a lot more that needs to be cut off, it's kind staying the way it is till all the glass can be vacumned up (made an aweful mess)

LOL,

Its proven design and Tim dont forget to tie it all into the front pinion gaurd. I made a ring that its tied into, but you have that cool gaurd, use it.

Yeah, I think I might tie it into the pinion guard.  I just need to find some thicker material and make a bridge. 


BigD-   Yes, I'm going to cut more.  For me at this point in time it is cheaper to do it this way.  I have a starter vehicle with axles and a drivetrain already mounted.  In order to swap everything from the MJ over to a buggy I would need a lot more money and time.  I do not have a surplus of either.   :'(

I do plan to build a full on buggy someday.  But I hope to NEVER get rid of the MJ. 

I guess I need a new name for it...there isn't really any MJ left.   :( :(

I used 1/4", but i think it was 588. 1/4" A36 would be fine but I also added two 1.5" bars on the side. That should be plenty, if not I got some 3/8" you can have. Just let me know the demensions if you want and I can slice you a chunk.
