    Hi guys. This is my first post. I have a custom project in mind and am doing research.

    Are there any differences between the 2wd crewman body and the Cross 6 or 8 body? I am not so concerned about exterior trim like flares, but the transmission tunnel and any bracing, thickness of materials, etc.

    Cheers.

    The Crosstrac cars have a couple of extra crossmember mounts welded to the floor and the rails have captive nuts for the big cross brace, no other differences I’ve seen.

    Welcome to the forum mate, IJ above is the man to speak too, if you haven’t already worth reading his build thread.  May be different to what you have in mind given its a race car but worth a look :good:

    Thanks.
    Sounds like i need to see what the cross brace looks like.
    As suggested i think i will check out your build.

    I also want to say that the forum structure creates a good first impression 😊

    For some reason tapatalk is a bit lagged and delayed with this forum. Jump on safari and use that.

    Hmm, i use my phone? Tapatalk isnt even quoting when it should, or putting in spaces. My plan is radical and very different from what has been done before. Its an offroad build. I hope to graft in pajero subframes and drivetrain, plus more.

    Ok stock Holden body is pretty much irrelevant in that case, just use whichever is available at the right price!

    What’s the end use for the car going to be?

    The end use is general touring, offroad, commuting. Its an everything car. The track would be widened with longer wishbones, but its more about comfort, offroad ability and handling, its not about doing jumps.
