Here's another. My batteries in my camera are really low. If I wait a few mins. I can snap a pic every few mins. before it shuts off. With these axle ends on it turns tighter. When I installed the Tobee Craft wideners I lost some of my turning due to longer outer axle cups. I was going to grind them down, but there's no need now. These thing are stronger and allow tighter turning. I only did one axle right now. I'll do the other when my Alloy knuckles come in.

Alright here is a few tips. First you can't use the stock bolts for that screw into the knuckles. You need some M3 screws for that. They are a perfect fit. Second you need to grind off everything smooth till they fit. Oh I just want to add I have a set of Classic Rock Rings coming from Unimoger. Sweet. I think I'll have the strongest and best looking TLT axles around.

Well I'm not going to use Savage Shocks. I plan on using Cen Genesis Shocks. They are 1in shorter over all and the Springs seem to be closer to a Maxx Shock spring. This should help with toqure twist.

For the price you can't beat these little add on's. Should make it look even better.

I can't choose what battery pack I'm going to run. I know I'm running 7 cells. But should I run an IB 2/3 1400 pack or a IB SC 3300 pack.. I have the room to run anything. It's just that I may have to run it on the frame. I really don't want to run anything on the axle b/c of looks. I kinda shootin for a Scale look a little. So any ideas? I found these. It didn't seem like a bad price even after shipping. They are about 15 bucks a pack.

On a lighter not I just got done narrowing my wheels by 1/2in. I haven't choose what foams I'm going to run on it yet.
