66 C10. Bed mount as you already know doesn't match up for the Gen8. I made a cover for the bed to hide the the new mounting position.

I was kinda bummed that I had to cut the bed floor out.

But I want to mount the body as low as possible.

Have a pic of your cover the the 66?

How are you liking your ovonic packs? I've been running the same packs, and been very happy.

I saw someone else use Tamiya polycarbonate paint cleaner well as another option.

For the little amount of run time I have on them, they seem to be fine. 👍🏼

Looks really good. The color mixed with the brushed panels works really well.

I just did something similar to my trx4 defender, with the defender body. I really like the ascender cage.

Thank you.

I was inspired to replicate this rig.



I want to eventually have a custom cage built by Pimpin Crawlers and ďback halveĒ the GEN8RL.

Until then, this will do.👍🏼

LHS has a crawler home today, took the GEN8RL for a couple of hours on the trail and had s ball!

I was the the lone GEN8, but not the only Ted Cat as one of our group had a GEN7 Pro.

The rest of the participants where driving TRX4 variants.

Didnít get many pics as I was to busy having fun. 🤣

Is was great to get back out on the trail again!
