    Well, we went to play on Sunday. The truck performed well. The front suspension needs to be re-worked to make it flex better, but for now it is done for Moab. 2 Weeks of small stuff ahead and also some painting etc etc.

    The rear is looking pretty good, I dig the diamond plate fenders.

    Sweet pics! Looks like it is set up well.
    Is that Ben Swain's new rig?

    Hey,
    I like that mini truck. What does it have for a lift and tire size. Any pics of it on flat ground or not stuck.

    thanks,
    Zach
