Didn't vote because I vote for both.

This is apples/oranges, IMO. Both are badass but they serve different functions.

My truck is a lot like Boxrockets but some day it will have Aloves front end and then it will be perfect.

I can't make a decision

Alove got my vote. I love how 'rigged-up' boxrocket is, but the SAS is huge! If Boxrocket SAS'd it'd be something very very special, until then Alove wins.

This is interesting. It all comes down to how you want to use the truck. If this is about rockcrawling, Alove's truck would take it hands down. IFS will never win out in the rocks over a solid axle.

I've had several solid axle trucks because I was playing in the rocks most of the time. This truck has been my first IFS truck and I've left it that way because I needed it to be more of an "all-around" truck. I can still play in the rocks on all but the most extreme trails, but it handles the overland and highspeed stuff so much better, not to mention daily driver duties.

Bottom line is there is no right answer. I'll be honest this round of voting has been a total suprise to me. Alove's truck is awesome and has been really well built. 45acp hit it on the head, these are two quite different trucks with different purposes and it makes it a hard choice. If I weren't the owner of one of the trucks I'd have a hard time choosing as well.

But as "member's choice" I guess it comes down to what type of truck is most useful to most members. Either way, props to Adam for building a kick ass truck!

Thanks for all the comments, complements and criticism, It is all very much appreciated. I'm not going to lie, I thought it would have been a lil closer but I knew coming into it that Boxrocket had an awesome truck and it's been one of my favorite builds for some time now.

As far as some of the comments on it being primarily for crawling, etc... This is my only vehicle. I built it with the intent to be driven 250+ miles a week, while maintaining a good ride and fuel economy. I was able to come out with that and keep my girlfriend from killing me in the process (that SAS is her wedding ring ). Also when wheeling/camping there is quite the arsenal of tools, parts, fluids and god knows what else may be needed lol

When it comes down to it I have no problem being eliminated by a truck like Boxrockets. I hope to one day have all the camping gear, bedrack and other odds and ends that makes his truck unique and as capable as it is.

Congrats and good luck in the next round!

Good job both of you. Sick rigs guys
SAS? What's that? We know this site hates SAS, I mean look at the 3 people that comment on my build thread, ONLY 3 PPL

Edit: I agree with above statements, I love both their trucks TBH.

It's cause your suspension setup is similar to the Ranger.

I agree with the above statements. Both trucks suit different needs/wants and are built per those. I personally voted for Alove because his rig is similar to mine in suspension and the setup fits my needs/wants.

Good thing for me n0rth's truck is a second gen. I don't think I could win that one.
