I like the look of your front bumper, with the square tubing. How did you get a nice shape with out kinking the bends? Oh yeah and what size was the square tubing. The whole truck is coming along nicely

Yep. After seeing TLTryan throw some shorter shocks on his honcho. I figured the 3racing mini lst shocks I had laying around would work.

Nice work Eric! What did you make them out of? I don't see a seam on the slider part.

I got the sliders from Dave as part of package. The bed,sliders,front bumper are 5/32'' square stock. I got some pieces from him.

Dave uses Mig and grinds the weld down.

I added the braces to sliders. To give them that more "complete" look.

Nice additions
I've got to the point where I'm adding those bars to almost all my sliders except the honchos. Lol, not sure why. They look good Eric. Let's see some full rig shots with all the square stuff on.

Ahhh I see. Clean work Dave! I like the braces, I don't always add them on my sliders. I'd say it's 50/50, some get them and some don't.

Thanks!

Thanks again for doing the bed and sliders.

Just wished I caught you early enough to get those braces done on the sliders.

She a runner!
I finish up tonight wiring up everything and get the radio setup.

I wanted to waterproof the electronics So I used a case that Futaba servos come in. Little cutting and drilling on the box.. fits perfect!



All button up.



Also I forgot to mention that I'm using 3racing winch, I made a jumper wire the winch controller it cleaned it up and works good.

I still have alot to do this rig.

Eric, was that done to get power through the receiver instead of through a third wire leading to a battery?
