Thread: Stick men

  1. #1

    Default Stick men

    I am new here and was wondering if you guys could help me out. My wife went to a store and this person had these little stick men on the counters. They were not for sale just for decoration. She said that they looked like they where made up with about 1/4 steel rod.They had ones playing sports and musical instruments. Now she wants me to make some for Xmas presents and I can't find a single picture of what she is talking about. Anybody have an idea of what these look like or where I can get a picture of these things. Thanks for your help.

    Mike

    Mike, you should really change out your steering linkages for a system that attaches the drag link to the knuckle. Bump steer will be a distant memory.

    I am in the process of gathering parts to build an OTK system. I have to finish building the gas tank skid plate first.

    Default steering

    Run hydraulic steering! No bump steer at all....in fact you will be able to move bumps with the side of your tire!!! Provided your knuckles hold. I used an old forklift ram, sized it for the throw of the steering and welded it in the linkage...works like a champ!

    Till the pump fails and you veer into on-coming traffic.

    I kinda like to KISS on mission critical parts. Now, for a trailered trail rig - go crazy.
