Default The "do some of everything" Taco

I figured it's time to do a build on here.
The goal of the truck is not to be built to far in any direction but be as capable as possible for all types of wheeling, if that make sense.

I am planning on putting it up in sections of the truck so bare with me it may take alittle bit.

Some pics of the truck:

The front bumper is an Allpro bumper that was modified for a better approach angle.
The front fenders are Glassworks 3.5 flares.
Also 4xinnovations sliders
The rear bumper is my custom creation

Currently the truck is at Halo Supercar for a cabcage build.






I think that about covers the important stuff. There is more im sure but that covers what I can come up with off the top of my head.

Let me know what you think or anything else you want to know or see. (sorry for all the pics)

Thanks guys.

It does well through the whoops. I can pretty much go as fast as I want, which is faster than I should have been going without a cage (40-60). It will be better after I take the time this year to tune the suspension.

Ive had the truck for a long time now, so I probably have a head start. Anyhow it has to start somewhere. I enjoyed this truck alot with basic setups.

Also changed up the front LED light bar setup.
