That's better. Also added the light bucket covers from the axial kits to the stock chrome buckets on the JK. little bit of detail work. Gonna add a highlift and maybe a couple of lights on the cowl.

I love the new hood! Very sharp! What are your plans for more power?

Tired of spending money on this thing but will be putting a sensored 13.5 tekin and mmp. Everything else is built to handle it already.

Moved the servo tonight. Now just need to make a more scale steering link setup. I used the VP CMS and pan hard kit.

Also digging the new color. Not as flashy.

Damn it's looking good. The subtle details make it. The cms, the links, the hood and the color are all perfect.

Looks awesome man! Nice work! The hardbody JK looks much better/more detailed than the lexan version from proline (on the wraith) the dash looks awesome as well. Nice work!

I cant waith to get my panels and all from you. I love the way yours looks.
I wish I could find a good looking hood to go with your panels.
How do you like the servo move off of the axle? It looks really scale I am just worried that it would be affected by flexing.

The steering works very well. I drove a little today at work and it cycles very smooth and with out bump steer. Installs really quick an doesn't require making any new parts.

Matt with Dinky RC gets all the credit for the lexan roof. He also makes hoods and is working on some new stuff as well. Check his stuff out for your hood and custom roofs.
