Thanks. Working on a fire truck for the everglades right now. When we get the shocks and get it rolling around I'll take some pictures.

We use a pro-tools notcher, someone asked a while ago.

Have you or do you guys make some kind of skid plate/pinionguard for the Ford 8.8? I've seen them made but nothing for the 8.8.

Something like this that also protects the yoke/pinion.


This past weekend I got hung up on the lip/ledge on the front of the rear diff. If it would have been a lot worse if the ledge was a little steeper.


Similiar to this, but have it extend out a little for more protection.

03+ 4Runner


Thanks

Cool but those tires don't look too ideal for the Everglades, should have used tractor tires.

They're not going to find the biggest hole and purposely drive through it. We built what the customer wanted, to a T, who has been involved in the entire build from the beginning.

Well if it's what the customer wanted than you can't argue with that lol. Weird he'd want those tires on there. Either way tho that thing is badass and you've got some serious skill.

It will see use on the roads and see speeds up to ~60 mph, and they are the same size tire they are currently using on their vehicles now. (49")

We need pictures of somebody standing next to it. The pictures make it hard to appreciate how tall this thing actually is.
