We all met up last weekend for a scale gtg. Usually i take alot of pics while im cruising around but i cant seem to put down my remote and grab the camera like i use too. This rig is just so much fun to drive.

But here is a couple i managed to snap





















And here is some video from the dash cam in the Radio Rockin Wraith

Sorry for the lack of updates. There really isnt any as of now. I managed to get some of the interior in. Its going to be hard to try and get the seats mounted up. I may have to chop them really small and make a panal to mount them too. Well this is the way it sits now.



I went to a comp the other weekend and i didnt make it 5 yards as soon as i got there and i took a little roll and i broke the axle shaft coming out of the portal. Thanks to Dean i have some sitting here but i have to get the time to install them. I have some other goodies coiming so once they get here ill try and put up some updates. I have started on my 1/1 dream truck i have been wanting to build it for 7yrs now. And me and my girlfriend are about to have our first little one here in a couple of weeks so i wont have that much time for the hummer with my little girl and my 1/1 truck.

4dr nissan pathfinder


Single cab nissan hardbody cab



Cut it in half


Single cab now up on the frame table with the front half of the pathy waiting to be trimmed up to fit.


And one day look like this but with alot of my own twist

Thanks Keith.



The hummer is tore down right now I managed to get more lift out of the front end. Why I don't really know. Lol but I bought some gpm arms for it and the uppers suck. They fell apart on me twice so out they went. Besides the stock ones have way more travel. I found a way to get even more travel out of the front end but while its apart I'm going to put a new tub on her and do a full tear down and clean and paint the susp so it all matchs then throw some new paint on the body.

Updates coming

Can't wait to see it! The increase in lift might reduce the max steering angle and probably wear the CV's faster. I left it alone for reliability good luck with it though.

BTW, I might build another one soon.

Yeah I didn't think about the cv's lol and so far what I did I had to shim the steering and blend alittle more on the skid plate. I plan on making a whole new metal lower skid and lower ARM mounts when we slow down at work. And Hell yeah on building another one. I doubt ill go back to a solid axle rig I love these cc-01 to damn much.
