after takig a good close look at what i had going on, and what i will need to do to do the rear shocks the way i want, i had to make a few changes. nothing to drastic, but now i have a bit better angle for the shorter rear shocks when i order them, and have room to mount both to the shock tower, and the trailing arm. still using the same rear shocks for mockup. i like this a bit more, and once i get the new rear shocks mounted it ll be better

old setup of rear on top, new on bottom

i also mounted the ESC in a better, more safe position, as well as cleaned up the wireing so it looks cleaner.

will post more once i get back out and run. its only 33 today so it ll wait. lol

Tim,

The Truck is looking good but I dont have one suggestion or Idea to maybe help you out if you want it.

The Truck looks like it sits really high off the ground. I know the real trucks sit kinda low but when they go off a jump thats when you see the full travel and when they turn you get alot of body roll. Also something to think about is if your going to be adding weight, a little might be good behind the rear of the truck behind the axle.

Just trying to help. Looks good though.

thats Good stuff Josh. once i get the shocks it ll be running, the ride height will drop. the shocks installed are longer than i need, so its keeping it high right now.
