again thanks for the comments guys... I'm glad the rig is appreciated and I hope it's an inspiration for others to build some awesome rigs for themselves as far as the IFS, it performs VERY well... no complaints at all from me. this rig will go anywhere... especially with all the metal parts adding the weight down low.

Hey, KC what part of Georgia are you in?

I was at Toys R Us with the kids and debated this body for a 1.9 build but held off.

I knew it was a matter of time before someone made a killer rig out of one.

Wow , that is a really neat truck, you've opened my eyes to this chassis. I just passed them by before. You did an awesome job on this one. One question though , where did you get the driver in the first few pics ? I think painting that stuff red is a great idea.

thanks dwano... it's a pretty good performer even with the suspension stock... just add a 55 turn and you don't even need a gear reduction box.

oh yea the driver is still in it you just can't see him from the angle of the new pics... he came with a sand scorcher body I got in a trade all I did was some painting on him.

That hummer is awesome. I should have recognized the newnan justice center behind the hummer. It was nice meeting you in Stan's shop and hope to see you soon for some GTG. Her is link with pictures from the Palmetto crawling location. Perfect for photo shoots

got the flatirons on it... much taller than the mud thrashers but I made a set of custom offset wheels so I can run em cause I heard that these g8 compound tires are awesome for crawling. as far as the shock hoops I made those too
