Thanks for the nice compliments! I will have to implement some kind of headlight protection as you mentioned. I would like to have it removable though, that way I can change bulbs without having to remove the whole top of the bumper....That looks awesome Soni! I am really digging that plate out front. Are you going to do protection for the headlights too? A couple small bars welded across over the lights to the other side of the plate would work I'd think. Exceptional work.
Nice! Even with a picture of the design....that is pretty much what I had in mind....and thanks for the drawing!as everyone else has said excellent work! I would never look at that and think it started life as a standard style truck instead of cab forward. For the light protection how about plate steel surround that bolts to your armor then a expanded steel insert, as long as mesh was fairly large open it shouldnt cause any problems with light. I'm actually using expanded metal for a homemade grill and headlight guards on my samurai. (threw together a pic for basic idea)View attachment 411756
Well I know where there's a 939 series rolling chassis. It doesn't have an engine/trans though. I also see a few possibilities coming up for auction that might be a better candidate (actual 931's A2's exactly). Where did you come up with your cab? Would only the PLS cab work or would a HEMTT work as well? (I know they're different, but I'm wondering about the steering and cab tunnel)Yes fair, I'm serious! So just keep looking.....it will be a few more weeks before the FEMTT is done....
