    Done a few mods since my last update.
    Im working on skinning the truggy currently. Im using 6061 T6 .063 aluminum for the skins.
    I have all the panels mounted just waiting on my black flame "wraps" for the side panels:D

    Also in that picture you can see I mounted a new propane tank back there. My previous forklift tanks held 8 gallons each for 16 gallons total. New one holds 22 gallons and I have alot of room behind it for a cooler and tools/fluids.

    Another change was the steering. My crossover/hydro assist was ok but there were those times where I couldnt turn. SOOO full hydro went in:D
    using a Danfoss 9.7 CU/in orbital, modded stock pump, and a 2"x8" TSC ram. Has CRAZY power and I designed it to have 2-2.5 turns L-L which I like MUCH better then the stock. I can have all the weight on the front and turn with the pinky pushing the truck away from a ledge. It is 100% more powerful then my old setup:D
    Ram mounts, 1" tabs with 3/8" gussets:D

    Orbital mounted and hoses ran.

    Next I needed to take advantage of the front dig option in the Stak, so I finally installed my cutting brakes, now I can spin circles:D

    And thats it for this update.
    Let me know what yall think:D

    I think you're a year younger than I am and 2-3 years ahead in your build. I'm jealous. :doah:

    Cool deal on the cutting brakes...I'd be interested to see how well it digs in person if you weren't 24 hours straight south.

    HMMM its 1073 miles from my house.
    Thats 119 gallons of fuel at 9mpg.
    Thats $273.70 in gas at $2.30 a gallon.
    Just say $300 for extra driving.

    Its about a 18 hour drive.

    I've heard EJS is ridiculously crowded these days, but you'd probably get to see a lot of cool rigs.

    BB, well, you'd get to meet some CK5er's and give a Toyota guy a lot of ****. :D

    I go to both and the difference isnt that big as far as how crowded it is.
    EJS has LOTS of venders that you wont see at BB, Lots of CK5ers go to EJS (like me) and have a great time. If your more of an expienced wheeler, then EJS would be something to think about IMO. BB is more of a relaxed type of all day wheelin Because there are more noobs on the trail to break stupid **** that takes all day to fix.

    :haha: Wasn't sure if you had that figured out. If I drag that 'yota and bring another friend my gas cost will be split between 3 or 4 people so it's not so bad.

    I've been hiking in Arches and Canyonlands and it's just plain awesome. I need to get back in a vehicle and spend some more time there.

    Anyways, end of hijack, your truggy rocks. :waytogo:
