Thats all for an update.. more to come soon.
How did you verify no bumpsteer without a drag link?? Great build so far! Looking forward to more!

Haha sine the previous one is exactly like it i just assumed! There should be none, i hope! Thanks. Cant wait to see what you come up with Jimmy. I love the extended two door jeeps. Just too bad i cant own the real thing.

Im gonna have to retry the set of Invaders i have again after seeing your build WT. Thanks. The Voids make the tires look really small whereas in your build they look huge. WEird. I would rather run the invaders though since the tread is much more scale.

Thanks, but my TJ is a pile of poop compared to this rig. I'm actually thinking I need to build one of these now.

Hell no! That rig is nice! Its one of the rigs that inspired me to build all my LJ's. You should join that jeep build off they have going on right now on Scale4x4.

Thanks again, but you're too kind. I didn't know about the build-off on Scale4x4. I don't have the time to compete in one right now, but I'd like to check it out anyway. Thanks for the heads up!
