Been a while since I have posted here... had a lot of computer problems and cash flow problems. Also since photobucket is being a pain, all photos have been moved to flicker. I'll repost the photos latter.

Settled on some electronics. Running a pair of Venom 7 cell nickle metal batteries, Hobbywing Quickrun brushed crawler ESC and Tekin 45T heavy duty motors.

PROGRESS WAS MADE TODAY!!!!!
Granted the bed still is not mounted, but the drive line is installed for the first time since this build was started. Front suspension is 90% finished, Rear is finished. I did run into some problems with the leaf springs stiffness VS the actual truck weight... they are not quite strong enough lol.

I found the New Bright rims, the JConcept tires will stretch over the rears. The chrome looks like garbage, so if I go this route they will have to get painted. The tires are only .1 inch shorter than the stock tires.

Forgot to post up the photo of the drive shafts and carrier bearing. It is made out of two pieces of cutting board.
