Charged the battery up and drove it around today at work. The tires are too soft for the hard body. They fold over. Any side hill or corner and it lays over onto the rim. Also started hearing nasty clicking from the rear end.
I have some gears on order and I have another set of wheels and tires to try later.

Put on new wheels and tires.
Did a review of the wheels.
Did some driving around today. And blew out the rear driveshaft.




Since the new tires were taller, I added some helpers to the front shocks

They limit the travel a little bit but the whole being able to steer thing is worth it.

Nice work on it man, I like the light setup you did though the new fangled led bar looks odd on an old yota lol. For tire clearance have you thought about a set of the bolt on looking flares and maybe body trim? I could never bring myself to cut it but dont know if you would want to lol.

Putting a new chandelier in an old haunted house is pretty common around here, especially in high school parking lots. There's a Comanche running around with two of them double stacked on it I see every once in a while.
The incandescent bulbs in the headlight buckets are a great color, not so good at actually lighting anything. Well. At least not much more that a foot or so ahead. The light bar reaches from about 3-8' in front of the truck.

I have a set of the axial dingo flares, but with the squared corners I put them on a clod body to make it a little wider. I've debated flares vs a little trimming even without them. As of now it drives and handles about perfect for an 80's leaf truck. If I want more performance I have an scx10

Took it out for a spin today with a bud.



Not a lot of good terrain but some fun on a coarse sand beach.
