    It is definitely an option and it's what I typically use. But I decided to pick up some Rock Lube from Norm at Team3six 'cause he's a buddy of mine. For all I know, it *is* marine grease. Sure smells like it! :lol2:

    Definitely want to keep tabs no this build, especially since I'm a bit of a Poison Spyder fanboy myself. Actually have the same BFH rear bumper on my JK as the KoH rig.

    Curious, though. If you're wanting to stay true to that particular rig, why not go with the Mayhem Monster wheels, as that rig appears to be running Raceline Monster beadlocks? That would definitley keep the scale appearance wouldn't it?

    Yeah, the Monsters are at the front of the pack with regard to my wheel selection, but I'm not entirely copying this truck. This is merely the inspiration so don't expect it to be a replica or anything. Don't get me wrong, my plan is to have it be pretty darn similar, but I always like to leave myself some "creative liberties" 'cause things don't always transfer well from the real world to 1:10. :lol2:

    I got a couple bits in the mail yesterday, but there's still one big piece missing that I'm still waiting on. Should have more updates soon, I hope!

    So while I'm waiting on goodies, I figured I can do some mods to the body. What the heck am I thinking? These things sells for real money these days! :mrgreen: Actually, I haven't really cut much off, but that's about to change once I get a rolling chassis.


    The razor saw did a great job. I even salvaged the flares in case I ever want to use these things on something else one day.


    Low rider mock up...


    Does this count as a chassis mock up? :mrgreen:

    Yep! Hopefully, the t-case/skid combos will be shipping out this week. That's what is really holding me up at the moment....

    Nope! The machinist for Dinky R/C screwed up the last batch and is now giving Matt (of Dinky) a hard time about standing behind his work. So Matt is evidently looking for a new machinist. At this point, there's no telling how much longer it'll be.

    That's why this build is currently on hold and I'm re-doing my Class 1 rig for the time being.
