    Some paint and some sort of tapered front or cage around the engine and it'd be a little cleaner looking. I'm seriously considering something similar...after the Blazer gets one-tons.

    You're on my last nerve. All you do is go around picking at everyone and their ideas and terminology and putting people down. You don't have to be a smartmouth. It's a solid axle made from IFS. Simple. You know what I meant, and it makes sense depending on how you look at it. Take your attitude elsewhere, man. This isn't Pirate, and for that matter that kind of attitude isn't welcome there anymore, either, except maybe in the "Hardcore" dept. The internet is catching up to the "real" world, and going around talking smack and putting people down isn't ok just because it's the internet and they can't give you the knuckle sandwich you deserve without taking a road trip.

    Beater K20. :rolleyes:

    Nah, I prolly came on strong, but seems like every time I do research and come across his posts, he's ragging on someone. Not that big of a deal, my skin's not too thin, but negativity wears on a man.

    I can't rememer now, but I think it's part IFS, part H1 stuff. I just like the stubby crew cab.

    I was thinking maybe the old Jaguar rear end that alot of the old school rat rods were using? kind of looked like one, but you can make anything work. I like the idea, something truly new? or at least something I never thought of :D

    True enough. You have to admit that "solid IFS rear axle" is a pretty weird statement, though! :crazy:

    From what I can tell, it's not, actually.
    I'm not familiar with an "M20" center section but it seems like everything else is either custom-built or H1 parts. Nothing out of an IFS setup, unless I'm mistaken.

    Sure is interesting, though!

    Eh, H1 is IFS too...unless it's IRS. For some reason, I thought H1s used 10 bolts but the M-20 might be H1. I didn't pay much attention, more interested in the chopped crew. The axle is interesting, but not somehting I'd bother with. 14 bolts are good enough for me.

    was this the first idea like this? I love it.
    Is there other similar suspensioned rigs?

    I'm poking around on Pirate. I sprung for a red star so I can search. I'll post it when I find it since there seems to be some interest.

    TTB might be converted to a solid axle (been done before) but I wonder if anyone has done it with the axle in the "drooped" position to gain ground clearance similar to this setup.

    Pretty sure that the HMMWV's and H1's have an AMC 20 center section, which that sounds suspiciously like. Looks like it's HMMWV parts plus a custom welded frame.

    Cool, yes. Why, I don't know. Well, it's a portal axle, okay, so good ground clearance, though all the hassles of independent (lots of moving parts) and none of the fun of solid axle (simple, bulletproof.)

    I'd still build one if *I* had the stuff laying around =))

    Now that you mention it, that might be an AMC 20.
