Update!!

My RC4WD order showed up

Some new wheels, high clearance aluminum steering knuckles, XVD 40+ degree steering axles, red ARB diff covers, and Ultra Scale drive shafts


So I tossed the old axles


For the new 40+ degree CV axles




Installed the new diff covers

And swapped the Rock Crushers over to the new wheels (for now...)


Also, I finally polished my custom links


I really want a 5th wheel for a spare, because these wheels are just too cool (but RC4WD doesn't sell this wheel individually)


The new steering angle, thanks to the XVD axles and high clearance knuckles

Thanks man! I found them, and immediately had to have them!

Stainless polishes up pretty nicely huh?

Thanks man Those tires will not be staying on these wheels though. I'll be putting them back on the black steel wheels as a second set once I get the new tires.

A little more progress on the body
