    Project buggy revive

    Here's the thing. I've been saving and collecting 1 ton builder parts for my Renegade in the last 4 years.....dang it's been that long. Also many hours of researching. I have come to realize that I couldn't build my Reny in my 1 car garage, and I'm not young anymore either (51) this year. I also did some numbers to properly build a rig on 40s it was cheaper for ME to buy a BUGGY already built. This BUGGY was on Kijiji and I was surprise no one here bought it.

    This BUGGY was built in South Carolina. Owner was nearly 6foot 7. I'm lowering the cage, moving the seat forward because I'm short LOL. There is lot of homebuilt parts that I want to improved. I'm taking out the center support bar, moving the gauges so I can see them. Clean the wires in the cab and in the engine compartment

    Tranny shifter arm is gay. There is rod ends that binds, very hard to shift, however it was very cold 2 weeks ago when I went for test drive. Twin stick are hard to to reach. I know they are all minor things but thats the beauty of this beast.......turn key RIG that I can go wheeling this year.

    I'm making a list of all the builder parts that's downside but who cares LOL. This thing has a lot of$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ into it so in my mind I scored for what I paid for this.

    What do you guys think? What would you change?

    Looks like a nice rig, need a winch and I agree that shifter and gauge setup will be hard to use. Make sure the cage is setup good for you and is built right too. Make sure you can reach everything while harnessed in, nothing worse than needing to reach for something and it being out of reach. Is he rear 14 bolt shaved, if you're going to add a different locker you might want to think of that while you're at it.

    Oh and let us know what you're getting rid of

    1200lb Rough Country has a home
    Awesome point seat placement and reachability(sp). Can you put suspension seats on sliders?

    I've seen them on sliders before, and I don't see why not. I'm assuming you mean a 12000 lb, not 1200 lb too.

    Nice score for sure. It does need some polishing for but I'm sure you will address everything in time. I love that it has an LQ4. Very cool. I don't love that it has NP435, though. That's going to take away from the capability of that buggy and make it drive like a 40 year old dump truck. And yeah, that shifteris hokie but swapping in an auto would solve all of those short comings.

    Looking forward to seeing this new ride progress.

    nothing wrong with 1200lb winch hahahahah..........12000 is too much for the buggy.

    Cheyne this 435 are they typically hard to shift. I hope warmer weather and revised shifter linkage makes rowing through the gears a breeze.

    No, the 435 in good working order, should shift smoothly. But it is a clunky long throw old school truck 4 speed. It is not a nice shifting transmission by today's standards. And the ratio spread sucks. It's really a 3 spd with a bull low gear. It would not be a desirable transmission for this buggy in the big picture.
