    4:10 Gear ratio Locked
    Warn Manual hubs
    Leaf spring suspension

    Well the truck made it 400+ miles across PA and back, on AND off road, and held up great, a few small adjustments are in order tho, this was the first time this truck was tested since the SAS so it turned out great.

    Chris--something looks weird, maybe it's the lack of a front bumper! Are you going to make one or anything?

    The tires you're running, are those Claws or Mudzillas? I am asking because I see the Maxxis sticker on the side...

    I was wondering, because I have been considering getting a set of those and was curious as to how well they perform. Although the ones I am really interested in are the Creepy Crawlers, but they're not out yet:(

    The creepy crawlers do look good but they dont make them in the size I want. The only ones I can get are the Buckshot Mudders.:(
