T-handle hex wrenches. The adapters are nice. Had to grind the trans case down slightly...

Makin progres...look, it's sitting on its own 4 feet.


precious cargo...notice how the ride height is now? take out the cans and...it's the same height. man, those leafs are stiffer 'n hell.


This is me forcing it to flex...


Big engine...


Rub my belly...Styrene skid that holds the trans and its servo.


another angle


almost max steering angle.


Here you see why I say almost. The tires hit the leafs at close to full throw.


Please leave comments

Tire change and decided I needed to start work on anti-zombie-ing this truck so I started at the front with a cow-catcher inspired ridiculous bumper.

im too lazy to do it right now, but im very curious about the leaves on this rig. am very interested in doing a 1/6 leaf sprung rig of my own, but have to find someone to cut me some custom ones. dangnammit, guess im gonna have to go back and read through all 8 pages now.

love this truck(and thats hard to say cuz i just dont like Ford Rangers for some reason), just as it sits pre-zombie death machine. would make a killer trail rig.

I got em from mutiny22. I don't know if he has the ability to cut them still but you could try. They were cut on a waterjet from 1/4" delrin. Make sure to get them flatter...

EDIT: It wont change much...but it WILL be sick. I only have to add a few things before the zombie-killing machine is done. I like simple things...
