i have a model 32 with the same ram on it. It'll bend until it reaches the next pin hole. Thats it really. Because of the little spring back after taking tension off. I max ram out, lossen it, push it in til pin falls in the next hole, continue. Love being able to roll it around. I mounted it on a heavy cart so i store my notcher and grinders and everything in the same cart. Looking forward to the build..

Should have some updates rolling in the next few weeks.

New Radiator and Derale Fan/shroud:



ZR2 leaf springs that will make a bastard pack out of:



JAZ 32 Gallon Fuel Cell, we wanted all the fuel we could fit:



Here is how the truck is sitting currently. Working on pulling both axles out today for the re-gear. Also will get the axle scanned in so we can work on some new products.

Good to see some updates. Was hoping it wasn't back burnered.

Thanks guys. Front and rear axles are out and ready for gears.

Should have steady updates for the next couple weeks. Trying to get it drive-able for some shock tuning at the dunes later this month.

Is it going to make the dunes? If not, there is always St Helen.

Gonna have to be St Helen or private property. Trying to get my other truck done for the dunes, since the kid can't fit in the race truck.

I dont have any pictures.... but a little more work has been done to the cage, front suspension and finished up the rear axle truss.

We are super busy and this keeps getting pushed back.
