Had the tires balanced and an alignment & made a quick run up into the mountains. I’m really happy with where it’s at right now. The suspension is very comfortable on the highway, but still firm enough to whip around corners. I can feel the progression in the rear shocks & already notice a big difference in its tendency to want to kick up the rear end on big bumps. It’s incredibly smooth & quiet in the dirt. I’ve eliminated almost every rattle & vibration in the interior, even on very choppy washboard roads. It’s just about time to start making some trips again! I did pick up a piece of 2x4 steel, so stay tuned for a custom bumper/spare tire carrier build.

Looks great. You have any rubbing with those tires on the back of the front fenders? I trimmed mine off, then rolled the edges and touched it up with some spray paint. Luckily, our white is easy to match.

I couldn't get anything finished by yesterday. Daughter's Ranger blew the pressure line of the power steering and I still need to fix that. I am just getting over a three day tension headache. I get them from time to time due to a old neck injury. Only way to break the cycle is to knock myself out for 24 hours.

FST used to take their Trophy Truck to Plaster City for testing. That's also where they rolled the thing big time...

Here’s some pics of the rear bumper. It’s still a work in progress. I’ll be adding a recessed license plate mount, and probably a jack and fuel can mount, maybe a shovel. The tire hanging off the back is a 33x10.50R15.
