Pics of my $100 B2

Postby Mud Addict » Wed Jan 05, 2011 10:43 pm

Some pics of my B2, the one on the left is my newest B2. The one on the right was part of a trailer accident. It was running 36's and 3.45 gears, and yes it was wheelable with them LOL!!!

Image

Image

Image

Built a back bumper today, just a 'lil shackle for pulling with

Image

Image

Image

Added a 'lil metal to the front bumper. I almost feel sorry for anyone who gets in front of me

Image

Built my window nerf bars, maybe windows will live longer now

Image

Image

Approaching the tree

Image

Starting to get close, hit the front fender hard enough to not be able to open my door

Image

And then i missed it with my window nerf

Image

Built a new front bumper

A pic from Dec. 11, 2010 at Evan's Creek on the 520 trail

The rear bumper started out as a 6x6 square tube with 5/16 thick wall. I split it in two leaving me a top and back section of the bumper. Used a few pieces of same material to make the frame mounts. The shackle hanger is 1.25in thick steel plate with a 1in hole through it. I cut it so that there is more material behind the bumper. So if for some strange reason my welds broke, it is impossible for it to pull out of the bumper.

The window bars are made from 1.75 in DOM. They are mounted through the body, used a piece of tubing to prevent it from crushing, with another plate inside to spread the load out.
