Bedsides are getting mocked up, looks like the sliders have a date with the grinder so they will clear the glass but it's starting to take shape! Hopefully it's ready by the next MORE race.

I was really hoping it might be done for the race today but it was not meant to be. I must admit I told Tim there is no rush but starting to miss driving it a little. The VW just doesn't cut it in the desert!

So hopefully my truck is back for Christmas, Tim has been super busy the past few weeks but got word today it should be done before the holidays! As much as I want it back I'm glad its getting done right the first time! Have been talking with the guys at LSK so hopefully the front can start sometime in the near future. Just need to keep watering the $$$ tree!

Yep, still have TC uppers and extended travel icons up front. Definitely want to go LT up front ASAP but going to knock out a few small things first than do the front including engine cage just need to make sure the tax man doesn't take to much. Also truck was at DMZ for awhile so kinda want to enjoy it for now.

Really like that bed cage. I think that's the first one I have scene on the site, where you can still use the bed. Very nice.

That rear LT looks great. Have any videos of how it handles off-road? Or just more pictures of the stance?

Haha still no idea how you link a build thread properly.
Edit
Well now it seams to be working, don't have any videos but my wife had some fun testing the front suspension at the last race that helped me sell her on a long travel kit sooner than later. Nothing like a hard hit through the whops to sell a upgrade
