    Nice Rig and nice improvements. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Is it just me or did you move your rear axle forward?

    Nope, it may have moved forward with the echobit shackle flip. I still need to put shims in the rear, the pinion is raised pretty high up right now. I am about to either put a s10 cab on it, or do an all tube trail buggy design.

    I see. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Maybe it appeared that way because you opened up your wheel wells. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    The color is Case Yellow as in the case tractor equipment. I just miss being able to pull in the woods and not be seen, for some odd reason it just sticks out. I can't figure out why /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I thought it was some kind of industrial tractor color. I've been thinking about painting mine CAT yellow, great for touch ups. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    That is looking mean! I really like the color too, giving me ideas of a repaint! I also like the s10 cab conversion but loosing the back seats has been a big limiting factor - got a bender?... make your own chassis!
