Ok thanks. I found some beadlocks on ebay for like$30 for a set but i dont want to buy somthing thats crap. I hear the eriksons are good. And ill put revo shafts on the list. i should be starting this build around next (whenever i get payed) then ill buy the wk then slowly convert it from there. What are your guys opinion on the k2 chassis?

You need to run a K2 chassis for it to be a Warpig.

Warpig makeover, I'm sick of Fords

The K2 chassis is a great performer.

That's what i was thinking! A k-2 chassis is going to look tiny under that body.
You're gonna have to build a custom chassis because i don't know of one that has a 20"+ wheelbase.
