Default Small Update

Got the axle truss, new shock mounts, and axle shafts done. Radius arms have also been repaired. Axle is back under the truck and ready for a test run.

Thanks Guys!! All the new stuff works quite well, but as always there are a couple minor issues. The new truss took up the area that was needed on the housing to clear the frame end panhard mount, it currently has about 3" of uptravel before the mount contacts the truss. This makes for a rather rough ride and doesn't allow for much speed or any bit of an aggressive driving style. I will be heading back down to the shop in the next couple weeks to remedy this issue as well as install more goodies on the axle as well as the rest of the rig.

Nothing has been done since my last post. I have been working on finishing the upgrades to the tow rig, it is just about done. Then I will be able to bring the truggy home and get the rest of the upgrades taken care of on it.
