    Currently the current that’s now:
    Sold the taco and bought a rock bouncer

    Currently Current:
    one tons, full hydro, 42’s four link front and rear

    Interested to see how this works out for you. A common theme is most people just back half it to make life simpler but I am intrigued to see how it goes sticking with the OEM frame rails.

    Not for what we wheel on here. If I was going fast or more concerned about rollovers it’d be worth looking into. Bouncer or a truggy with an exo cage would probably be a better fit at that point.

    Fair enough. Keep things simple and just link the truck instead.

    yeah something like that haha. I like to build so it’s been fun to learn something new. Definitely overkill for the platform, but fun to tinker.

    Haha yea for sure. Best way to really understand it all is to commit to chopping off half the frame and making it all work again nicely. Kudos for getting it done. I wonder if you can 4 link and keep the bed...
