Got it yesterday! This thing is such a work of art! I refuse to run it without putting on sliders first. Maybe even some exo cages for the front and rear bumpers too..... we'll see. I took the Toyota out today so I took a nice poser shot.

MAN THAT THING IS SWEET, love the black over the white.

I might be able to afford one of those after the first of the year, BUT NO WAY I WOULD, 3000 and regardless of money in it, I WOULD BEAT THE PISS OUTTA IT, basically, for 3 g's, it better be tougher than any other rig I have LOL. I have one of Stephan's winches like you got on this, but its on my Super Duty, and with the workmanship in it, I know I would get the best built rig ever known, from him, but again, cant beat the hell outta $3000 so I cant buy one,lol.

PS: Have looked at getting a body too, still debating on that, tearing up a $300 body would probably get my manhood removed by the woman.

Hey what serial number do you have? Your rear license plate isn't visible.

Finally tried my hand at making sliders. With Trevor's (Broncobass) help I was able to get one side pretty close to done. 3 support pieces will go inbetween the square and outer tube. I ended up filling all the square stock with the solid rod to make them a little more strong.

Should have them done soon!





Table setup. The small grinder and belt sander are perfect for working on this small stuff.

That's a good bit of leverage at the mounting plates.

Think that brass and solder will hold up?

Nice look on the sliders. Like JIA said. Beef up the mounting plate. The brass bends very easy!

Yeah with the weight of the rig I had planned on putting a brace towards the top of the plate. I was pulling pretty hard on the slider when the plate was in the vise though. More sturdy than I expected.

AWESOME, looks like my old 1:1

FYI, your snorkle top is facing the wrong direction, the vented part should be facing forward.

Sounds like it'd work.

Man o man, i coul'd never pay that much for a RC!!! Don't guet me wrong,the craftsmanship and time going towards the truck is insane but i would prefer something that wont hurt my pocket and my heart if it where to tear apart or fall, But other than that great ride man, enjoy it like if you stoled it.LOL!!!

From all the dishes I don't do...

Got the sliders all done. I think the gusset i put from the mounting bar to the plate will work just fine. It's not like I'm going to drive this thing like my others. Just have to make them all purdy! Not as heavy as I thought they would be. Should be fun to see how heavy the rig will be completed.
