Funny guys!

We have been living together for 4 years or so, it is basically just a formality now. Just a reason to buy dinner for 500 people I guess. Glad her dad is loaded.

I am leaving to go back to KC now, so maybe I will get something done tonight.

Well I got the other front axle swapped under the truck tonight.

I want to get the servo mount on this thing anodized blue to match the rest of the truck. There is a lot of blue and it may be too much for many people, and I don't even really like blue but I like this truck. SO DEAL WITH IT!

I need to grab some new maxx drive shafts, and dremel bits, and a new set of allen wrenchs tomorrow. That will finish up the parts I need to get it running. The racing seat and window nets still need to be modified/fabricated for appearance sake.

I am thinking about adding some RAM Led lights to it. Thinking about mounting them to the to the underside of the roof area, so they would actually be inside the cab. I am not sure, it is just a thought.

What do you guys think about that? Maybe blue LED's?

you need to get some of those truck nuts and hangem off the rear. you could even paint em blue.;)

Seriously though, I like all the blue and anodizing the servo plate sounds good. The lights might be overkill, but I would do em myself so go for it

build is lookin good so far.

You should put them by the wheels for "rock lights" That would be sweet

I am drawing up some RAM-like lights now. I am going to put them in the model and post up a pic with some possible locations.....

Without being at home I couldn't tell you. Search for the King Bling build. I believe JIA has the dimensions with a couple different sets of wheels on it.

I agree as well, I wish I knew some off the top of my head that were smaller. These are just the normal rollbar RAM lights. They have a 1" diameter, I think a 3/4" would be a little better.

I will deal with whatever I can get though.

Just go looking for some of the larger scale models out there that have light bars or brush guards with lights. It's a bit harder to find the larger scale models, but they are out there. That would give ya the best scale look....but you could also try just plain plastic spheres cut in half and then mount the LED inside.
