Those are actually Samaurai axles. I wanted them narrower than the toyota's. I figured that with a 1500 or less lbs buggy they should survive. If not I have a HP44 and a 9" from a bronco that it will get.

I have the basically the same seats but with the covers. I bought them off of ebay from a guy in Ohio. He delivered them to me because his daughter goes to college just down the road. $100 total with the delivery!!!!!! The delivery cost is the reason I looked around before buying new.

They are basically brand new, he was using them in a porche.

I started mine right at the end of November, so I have had more time than you. I rally hadn't worked on it since the end of January because I have been collecting parts.

I should be pretty good on parts now looks like I am just missing drive shafts, pedal assembly,harnesses, and some small things.

I have an engine/tranny/x-fercase now, fuel cell, battery, seats, hydraulic steering valve, all my aluminum for floor pans/body panels, head lights, etc.

I just really need time to work on it, only in town on the weekends and the wife doesn't like me spending all my time on the buggy!
