That truck is awsome, but I have a hard time beliving he dosn't break suspension parts all the time with tires that big. 40" Tires and 5.12 gears means a LOT of stress on drivetrain componets.

well....first, that is impressive for a TTB truck...and yes, it would put alot of stress on the drivetrain, however, he is only running an l/s rear, not a locker, so he can get away with some of it...

and, it's front end is currently stock, as he is trying to swap a Dana 60 into it...

One day he's gonna be on a road, or highway. And all he will hear is a snap, crack, and pop. Someone better warn his ***.

the only sponsor I see is a motorcycle racing sponsor.



Also I HIGHLY DOUBT that anyones gonna sponsor a ranger with a six inch lift 3 inch body and forties. In no way does that make it a "capable rig" by sponsorship standards.
