what model are you running?

i'm just starting to do things to my unimog.
picked up an Rx relay from heyok so i can use the O/I switch on my remote to flick my lights on and off. works perfectly (except my rear LEDs aren't working currently - i blame it on the bad design of the body to chassis and the strain it puts on the LED connectors).

also got myself a winch, tires and OEM steel beadlocks from RC4WD, and have the GPM steering on its way.

this stuff has set me back over $175 so far. it definitely adds up in a hurry. for $140 you could get a Toyota FJ 40 from RPP. ;)

GPM Steering, GPM 4-link, and new tires. (I went with the Rock Cruisers off the Hilift- much better, but still only $25 or so)
