Having 2 screws will limit your droop, just like those zip ties will, but the 2 screws shouldn't affect uptravel. I don't see any shocks yet but if you plan to have mostly uptravel then the 2 screws would be fine I think.

The springs are twisting enough, I think the new springs will just need to break in some

Nicks parts are awesome, I am bummed I cant use them on this, they seemed so fitting for the truck. But at least I dont have to worry about the internals now.


Today at worked I got the rock sliders brazed up I think they came out good

Sliders came out great! Are you keeping the hummer wheels? I think they really look the part with the center caps. Once again great work and great pick up of a sweet rig!

The sliders look great, very nice rig. The flat bed rocks and I'm a big fan of Orange.

I need to put a clear windshield and interior in my rig. It looks 100X better on your rig.

What windshield would you recommend? I know that there is a guy in the UK that makes them but I've also seen a really heavy duty aftermarket shield that I thought was available through bruiser builder.

Rig looks amazing as usual

Coming from you guys that means a lot, each build I am getting better and better with my tube work. These sliders came out so well I want to re do the ones on the clone now .

Dean I am going for a little bit more performance on this once, and now that the Bruiser cabs are available I wont be afraid to bash the shit out of this thing I am sure this will be done by the next time we meet up and wheel together, then I can wheel with the best of you guys

Yeah the orange is a very cool color, kinda like a burnt orange. I need to find out what color it is so when I do the half doors and stuff I can touch it up

I have scene the UK ones they are pretty nice but are definitely thinner lexan then the Bruiser builder ones. Problem is that Forrest was having Matt at scale hobbies make those for him and Matt has relocated and is just starting to get back into RC (been emailing with him recently). I am not sure if he will be offering the same services, I know he shut down his site.
