Icarus is currently awaiting a D60 rear and a HD44 up front which will include 3 and 4 links, he was sidelined for the work on Mr Mud to be completed, and for extra dollars for upgrades. What Icraus loses in parts Mr Mud gains! lol

Today Icarus' rear end underwent surgery, and now sports a locker! He'll be back out and about very very soon!

funny but the gears didn't look right for 3.73 so after counting twice we discovered it has 4.56 front and rear. That explains the ease of driving with oversized tires.

Buy the Eddie Bauer Colin, save it from TTB amputation! I would if I could, it's a perfect setup for a dual-purpose desert truck.
