They look good. I can see paint coming off your tube frame, which means only one thing. It ain't a shelf queen

Default bead locks

well they could be functional if i were to add long screws, right now they are just hot glued to the wheels, when i put them on my jeep bruiser im goign to use long screws and drill out the wheels, it will then be a real bead lock because the bruiser wheels are well i guess you can say 3 pc wheels, you have both halves and the inner ring which hold the beed tightly then ill have the out ring itself bolted to the front half of the wheel.

we must have the same friend...

Kevin does make some awsome Aluminum beadrings




They arent really functional at all..even if you screw them down like I did. They just look GOOD!!


When you first bought that truck off of ebay,I knew everybody said it was a bit too expensive but looking at it now....Im sure it was well worth every PENNY..Hulkwerks does awsome frame work


JasoninAgusta,i was surprised you didnt win this truck...Since You went pretty high when bidding on Hulks PETUNIA crawler ,I was almost sure this one was going to be yours

The orange one that was later painted BLUE then Muskater later bought and sold it off on ebay and now "who knows" owns it?.....nope...dont think I remember it

Thats the Buggy that made me want one and eventually built my 4ws version of the same truck...with a modern twist ofcourse

Default thanx

thanx for all the comments guys.

aggy i think we do have a friend in common...haha, kevin does to amazing work, and as pricey as this truck was it was well worth it, the frame is mint and everything else works great too, i use all the time, on the beach around the yard where ever it maybe, its probably one of my favorites because i can actually use it. so it was definitely worth every penny, i just wish i could find a bruiser cab for it :( this way i can really make it scale.

later
mike
