I am planing on doing a F650 in similar style to your previous Cxt build. I see you mention proper link geometry in your subframes, can you provide measurements to provide these correct geometry's? Or give me a good starting point?

Loved your last Cxt, second go is always better!

Man, I've been thinking about shortening that cab for a while. The one thing I need is the cab...

...and all the rest of the parts to make a complete truck out of it. Good on ya, looking forward to seeing what direction you're going with it.

No measurements, just things like shock placements, lower/upper link placement and triangulation, etc

I shortened one in the first CXT I built. See link. This one I did a cleaner job on.

Thinking Dakar support truck look. Sitting around 16" wb right now.

Power was out for 8 hours due to some storms. Got the shock mounts cut out and drilled before that. Should make some progress tomorrow.

Cash or credit + Harbor Freight= cheap generator + 2 gallons of gas = artifical power.

Artifical power + energy drink and snacks= happy hobbyist.

Now get to work!!

That is a great example of logical math. Our power goes out about 4-5 times a year due to various types of weather. I've been saying I need a generator for years.
