if you don't mind me asking how did those tires perform? that they slip a lot where you had to get up speed to push? Looks awesome by the way!

Thanks, Mike. The tires are OK. A little hard, but not much will work in 8 deg F very well. I did have some issues with snow sticking to them, but I think it was because they were a bit warm when I started, so they iced up a bit.

I thought about that, but I didn't want a back rack to get in the way of my future pull toy, plus is would interfere with the tool box. Still thinking about it though.

Thanks for the comments, gents.

Wow!! This is my favorite build ever!!! It needs to be in the running for the best truck for 2012!!! I am speechless!!! Hopefully we will get more snow here in Michigan, so you can get that thing to work, with 4wd of course!!!

You need to work on the diesel smoke. If anyone can pull it off...it's you! Awesome pics! The total package is absolutely amazing! How about a video or two or three? Day, night, and twilight please!

Thanks. The CC chassis does have 4x4 and I certainly need it for this. I locked the rear diff and kept the front open for the best steering. I live in the Grand Rapids area.

Much appreciated. The Bruiser Wrecker was actually my first custom creation back in the 80s. RC Car Action did a feature on it a few years ago after I did a complete chassis resto on it. It's also in this months (march) RC Driver mag with the plow. It's nice to be able to share a complete build thread over here.

Very cool. I think most of you are on the east side.

Based on a great suggestion from another forum member, I added a company logo on the doors. Kind of neat as I have both my kids and a son-in-law working at this local company. I'm working on adding a Back Rack to this rig too.

The logo looks great...fitting for the build. I'd love to see a back rack on there. I'm already starting to feel sad about this build coming to a close!
