That would be sweet! My buddy has a Bug body on a rig like mine also. They are built totally different, but equally as big.

I got my double transfer case adapter today, started assembling it already. I'm doing a 203/205 doubler, in double low range it is 3.96:1 instead of just 2:1 low. Gonna do some serious crawling now!

Long time no see guys. I got the dual cases done, took the rig out twice, and exploded the one ton axles. Now it's sitting on 2 1/2 ton Rockwell military axles, held in by triangulated four links. It has four wheel steering now also. I'm hoping to have it done by the end of summer. Here is a couple shots of it now.

Yes it's on Rockwell 2 1/2 ton military axles. I am entering it in next year's Four Wheeler magazine's Top Truck Challenge. I need the votes to get in! I will be the first to compete in a VW if I make it in, so show a guy some love and send in some votes, please! Here's how it looks now, almost done.
