Yes, the plug is a ph 2.0

Honestly, I don't advise making your own. I tried. And it worked. But was not fun. The crimper is like $25 on it's own.

That pack of 6 harnesses was $8.99

ok, so long term update.....

I put my mil stoone spacers back on....

I did notice that my RC4WD wheels inside of the hub rubs on the rear screws sticking out of the backing plate face

also noticed becaue I am running the mil stoens with the barrel nuts that I had to make sure to properly enlarge the axle hole in my wheels. they weren't enough, and actually made my wheels not sit flush on the hub and they wobbled like crazy. I reamed them out, and they are much better

and I realize I really need to upgrade my servo, I can't turn if it isn't moving

so, I just trimmed my body quite a bit

anyways, while I was in there, I was looking @ some stuff.....

has anyone mounted the shocks directly to the frame and not to the shock towers?

Raising the height that much would change geometry enough you'd probably want to lengthen your links. I've seen it done, but I don't recall how it performed on stock links

Love my RPM drivers! Great looking truck Jimbo, but I like the look better without the wheel wideners.

Nice, wondering which lcg battery setup is better this size battery mounted up front or the longer skinny lipo mounted out back?

I've got a nice set of ratcheting crimpers that I've used many times, well worth the money. HOwever, smallest connector I've made is JST, the ph2.0 is smaller and will be more of a challenge, but I'd try it just buy bunch of the parts and give it a shot. Don't bother with cheaper non-ratcheting crimpers, I had a set that I gave away. It's hard enough holding wire, conductor and crimpers and keeping all lined up while crimping.

I did it with the rear shocks, moving the upper mounting point forward, but not the front

ok, so I did some more modding based off of responses I got on FB..... truck has like no compression up front now, it's all droop. rear still has a little bit. I moved the top of the shock mounts even mroe inward toward the center

Just ran it outside. It crawls way better.

I am rubbing the middle link with my driveshaft though up front, it chewed into the Y link on 1 side.

And my tires still rub like crazy @ the back of the front wheel well @ the firewall. So I want to trim that back some more. Maybe to the door. The fronts are going to look like a flat fender Jeep, lol

Looks great man! A little tire rub never hurt anyone. Hell, I had rub on the front frame rails with my 1:1 Jeep and it never hurt anything. I relocated the rear shocks on my SCX24 the way you did but haven't done the fronts yet. I think I tried but something was preventing me from being able to. I just don't remember what. I did swap places with the battery mount and ESC mounts so I could distribute more weight up front, but I don't remember why I couldn't leave my front shocks mounted to the frame rather than the shock mounts. Glad to know it works, though.

I have heard of adding an o ring or 2 to my shock body above the collar and spring to get a little more pre-load, what size?

And also adding an o ring to the shock eyelets to help cut some of the slop, what size there as well?

Mine was that way and I had to solder the Rc4wd in that way too. No big deal.
