well i got kyle's truck and while kyle did a great job with eye sore, i am wanting to make it my own. i am going to try and keep the welder away from it for the time being and just have fun with it.

just looking at it, it has a sleek, fast stance, like a wasp, being flat black and being i can't stay out of the mud, it was named the dirt dobber.

future plans:

i do have a new thunder bird hood that i plan to cut up to make a hood for it, get the crushed sheet metal off the sides of it and add a lil tubing. i am going to try and keep it lite tho. thinking some of kyle's success with eyesore was the light weight was his advantage, i am going to put it on the scale and have a number to go by and try to stick right with it. adding no more than 250 lbs to the existing truck... not including me of course.

the driver's side is sagging so i will swap in a new rear spring in the front drivers side. and make a new tranny tunnel.

this being at least 6 months away or course. it might even be a year. it runs great and i am going to beat on it and find some weak links i think. so stay tuned i'll throw some pics in soon.

Well I have been tinkering with the ole truck. Not much to show, just been enjoying it, but I found some seats that are pretty cool yesterday on Craigslist. Check em out

They are mastercraft defense seats! Made for a grenade blast or bombs. The name is " blast attenuation crew seat, mil spec.




Also started to groove the bloggers. I borrowed a nice tire Groover from x-jeeper and bout a #12 head and blades for it so I think they turned out nice, got to finish all the tires tho

Well got the seats! Very nice! and did some grooving, finished the front tires, think it'll help alil but it looks different from any other bloggers I've seen so that's what I was going for too. Here's some pics from yesterday, first day that I've got out of bed for over a week:(

Went to the flats this weekend and beat on the buggy a good bit, Had a blast and won a good bit of stuff off road goggles air down kit, fiRe extinguisher, barns truss of my choice, and two barns battery boxes. A good deal, I sold the fire extinguisher to the guy beside me for $20 to get my entry fee back.lol I'm a cheap bastard!

Well the list of things that I will have to work on before the next trip is:

The frame is cracked behind the front spring hanger on the steering box side
The front diff is popping every so often, under load.
The clutch got hot and started slipping. It didn't help I was in low low 3rd gear clutch drop 4500rpm. Let it cool down and it started gripping again so I will have to see.

Thanks man! It's been nice to be able to beat on something hard and not worry about a catastrophic failure... Atleast not yet. I don't think the truck can beat on harder than I did sat. The boggers did fantastic grooved, couldn,t be more happier...and was afraid that i might be getting chromoly rear shafts with the tires getting grooved but it held up. There was so many people that I knew I had a lot of help if something broke bad. I tried everything that came up.

We had a great time and won some stuff at the raffle.

talked to barnes4wd today to get some of the parts that won transferred to parts that I use. He worked with me and I now have a nice credit with them and am going to order some stuff to keep in my stock. Thanks again to barnes4wd

Talked with daylon and asked if he had an open diff to transfer the Aussie locker into...if that was the case and he didn,t ... But he gave me a great deal on a diff with a locker to swap out. So I'll be swapping the doffs out and going again. Ill be able to get that diff right and have it for next time something desires to blow. Thanks again daylon.

Lil update, been playing around with the truck and getting it ready, I changed the front left spring, thinking that it was wore it and sagging but installed another spring and still the same leans to the left, I guess the next thing to dois to change out the right rear spring to try and get it level with the others? What y'all think? I know there is some heavy weight in the drivers seat but dang it's annoying to see it leaning to the left all the time...just sitting in the driveway it leans

Add more weight to the passenger side???

Take the passenger springs and move them to the driver side???

It doesnt have the spacer on the axle, i never added one.

The right rear is the newest spring on the truck. The one you need to change is the left rear i think. It is the only orginal spring left and im sure its worn slap out. It started leaning bad when i changed the right rear, not a front.

Well I,ve been MIA because of family things going on and haven't been able to take much time for my own projects. I have been dreaming and setting the stage for some changes to the buggy. Everything on it is doing well, just wanting to change the look and get some MO POWA. Like everyone, the 22r is just doing it job and nothing more. I,m going to change at but before I go there I am needing to redo the body parts. Here's where I am at as of this week. Stripped pretty much all the Toyota sheet metal and going to replace with clean sheet. Adding tubing where I see fit to change the look alil. Gusset where I see fit and install new seats. Kyle fits n that buggy alil better than I do. That will change soon though. Lowering the floor and seat chassis to accommodate my large stature. Let me know what you think.
Started looking into the floor situation and seeing what I had to work with! Not much here

Cut all the panels off and got the seats out of the way




Not much support for the new panels and such

And here is where I am left. New floor will be right at the frame level. Seat tilted back like all rock bouncers are

I have the other side to do and a lot of gusseting for the rock rails and such but it's open so everything is getting checked, cleaned and painted. Now for the power side of things. Been researching ideas for more power without spending too much green backs and found out that I am going to turbocharge it...not a huge amount, 22Rs are not known for being boost friendly but with a head gasket change and arp head studs it can handle alil. Probably wont take it more than 10psi with a small intercoolers. 12psi w/o a intercoolers. I am using a Mitzu eclipse gets turbo. It's a garret unit and is known for being a quality turbo. Factory setting around 8-10 psi. Putting a boost controller will bump it up to 12. I am also running a small intercooler to allow a smooth boost and no lag. I was going with a supra turbo but after seeing one beside this Mitzu unit I will be happier with the latter. Its a internal waste gate. Now some pics



This is a sprayer to cool the intercooler as I come upon a obstacle that i will be seeing full boost for along time...this cools the fins of the cooler to drop my temps for even better power. Use a windshield wiper motor and a nice ice water box and fill it up.

has it been run hot after you got it? gonna lower the compression?
as good as that engine runs i'd not change the head gasket--just install the studs and let her ride. and on the boost thing think about leaning
towards lower boost without an intercooler as that will be more
stuff to fail on the trail. 6-8 lbs of boost will make a noted improvement
and be reliable.

other than that your upgrades sound good. armor is a good thing.

After looking into this before, I would run the non intercooled 6-8lb setup with headstuds. For what we do it should hold fine. The thing that tends to kill these engines on boost is cranking the boost up. Otherwise, even non-intercooled they seem to take it pretty fine in our applications. Cassidy ran a similar setup in his old single seat buggy and had good luck. It spooled quick and was darn reliable. IMO with intercooler/sprayer/aftercooler kind of setups on these things its just one more part to mangle and break on the trail.

I don't under stand... It still runs. Just alil weekend wrenching project! That's all. I won't be putting the turbo on til winter. Making the turbo header and doing the piping after I get all the stuff. Right now just getting all the parts for the turbo mod. Only doing body work right now.

Stretch not sure what you mean by "after cooler", please clearify. but from what I,ve seen going slow and bouncing on obstacles is going to heat up the boosted air. The sprayer is a cooler lil feature that is cheap and just insurance ...just ncase. And since the gst turbo is 10-12 psi, a small intercooler will drop that pressure down to 7-10 from my estimates. Going to Dyno the current setup soon to find out what I'm at.



Dawg, thanks for talking today. My engine hasn't had any problems. I,be seen people run into issues with the factory style fel-pro head gaskets with lil boost. So il will be installing the arp head studs and while I'm there I think it,ll be smart to run a boost friendly head gasket. Mos gasket will run $100 but I think it'll be safe.
