Re: Truggy lives..... for a day

Skip that and go straight to 14 bolts front and rear! Truggy looks like it needs a stretch in the front!

Re: Truggy lives..... for a day

You going to go to a bigger tire to help get some air under that 60/14 combo? It currently has 37's right? Even with my 39.5's I have barely a foot under that 14bolt housing. I'm hoping to start (as in like a year from now) putting together a custom 9" housing with either 14bolt hubs or some unit bearing hubs for some added clearance.

Re: Truggy lives..... for a day

that's goofy breakage, did the lockout toast too or just the hub? bad casting?

That ranger is pretty damn cool, BTW.
