Default Just a simple mud truck

With all the rain ive been getting in my area i decided i needed a new mud truck. Ever since i saw rcbros burly mud truck conversion i knew it would be my next mud truck project. I haven't decided on a body yet so a honcho will be used for mock up.

Small update. I picked up a front sway bar meant for a wraith for the rear, seems to work.

Truck is looking good. how does it do in the mud? got any action shots?
I've been thinking about building a mud toy myself. Just having a hard time finding a chassis i like and can afford.

Havent got in the mud yet, its coming. I went this route for performance and simplicity. I highly recommend a sway bar in the rear and the battery mounted across the frame rails behind the front shock tower. Testing in the front yard with the setup i mentioned allows me to make controllable full throttle take offs with out lifting the front end. Thanks again for looking.
