It's starting to get to the finish line. Minor decals added. I really love the way this truck looks.

By no means complete yet, as I still have some parts to put on..... but I will be running it soon.

That is a cool build. Nice how you did a lot of the upgrades during the initial build instead of waiting for things to break.

Finally decided on a driver for my GOM.

Tunnel Rat from GI JOE Sigma 6 line

On Another note... I spent time thinking about how to protect the shifter slot for the 2-speed transmission.
Do I cover it with lexan, somehow make a rubber boot?
In the end, my head was already fatigued from work and I just thought... 3M Tape.... piece of felt.... it'll work. LOL

Finally installed the last 2 upgrade parts that I have on hand. (Although I'll probably upgrade some more parts as they are released in the future).

First was the GMADE Aluminum Skid Plate (available on eBay) to give the bottom a little more protection and give the bottom sides an angled flat surface to prevent getting hung up. It also has a minor protrusion to protect a little of the 2-speed transmission area.

Also got around to installing the GMADE CVA/CVDs. Holy Moly what a difference in steering angle!!! I'm going to need to spend some time adjusting my steering end points.

So, I went out hoping to test the truck out at a local spot that I found people talking about on the forums. Head out there today and discovered that the spot is now a paved road.

Ended up just taking it for a light run at the community trail with what little time I had left.
