A panhard bar is a suspension link used to constrain movement of the axle. One end of the link is attached to the top of the axle and runs parallel to the axle. It is attached to the truck above the axle on the opposite end. It constrains the axle laterally and is meant to keep the axle from moving side to side.

It's kind of hard to describe, but here is a pretty good article describing how they work: http://www.afcoracing.com/tech_pages/panhard.shtml

Not really... a sway bar resists up/down articulation for each side of the axle in relation to the frame and to the other part of the axle. A panhard bar allows for free movment up and down on each side, but restricts and constrains the side-to side movement of the axle.

You also said it's like a sway bar. The only real similarity is that they are both "bars" lol

Not nit-picking, just trying to clarify.

We are at it again.

4 guys and 60+ hours in 4 days and heres where she sits now.

New Specs:

Triangulated 4- link rear (4ft long rear lowers haha)
3- link with panhard front
2in .25 wall DOM lowers with 1.25 johnny joints at one end and polys at the other
115in wheelbase (from 128.5 in)
Took 12 in out of the front of the box and 8in out of the rear.
Pushed front axle out another 1.5in
Fox Air shocks 14 in front and 16in rear (not on yet)
15 gal fuel cell
Ram assist

The fenders will be cut and going back on front and rear with all of the tubework in the front going behind the fenders.

The bed cage / fender skins arent done yet.

It only has 4-5ft of stock frame left.

Cut 3in out of the rockers and rolled the sheet metal into the tubing. There will also be a tree pivot tube added to the rocker guard.

Still missing the cross on the roof along with a cross inside the cab.

Still a ton of work to do but its getting there.

Should be close to finished and have some more updated pics in a week or so.



























Dont mind my buddies drawings in those last couple pics.

Let me know what you think so far...

your truck is just so freaking cool. i dont know what else to say. im speachless.

you beat me to the 4 link in the rear i really want to do that. but I am glad you did it gives me some more ideas.

i know its older setup but do you have pics of how your track bar mount is on the axle?

also on the back half is that going to be enough for the rear or do you have more planned? i imagine more cage right?

more pics of the rear links?

ah i love it. i need to see your project in person! so glad you posted it here.
