hey!
Cage:
for Xtra Speed Defender D90 Hard Body (XS-59666), #XS-59684 ,(XS-59684) by Xtra Speed Metal Roll Cage w/ Luggage Tray
Super cheap but I had to modify it as it didn't fit.

Front bumper:

This fits perfectly.

Have fun!

Thanks.
Yes I had troubles with the shocks, they were super sticky, one is still like that. I removed the plastik o-ring that is inside the shocks to allow better movement which worked but they leaked...
So I run them no oil, just a bit for lubrication. The car is so heavy that the stickiness is a big issue. My biggest complain is the fact that I couldn't find softer springs.
That's why I bought some old man emu shocks, in 90mm to more flex, with different springs, still waiting some parts...Should arrive soon, I hope.

Are you building a d90?

Rock sliders are from rc4wd, and yes you'll have to cut the original fenders! Take your time, it's a very, very hard plastic to cut.
