I'm impressed. You guys are very observant.

Can anyone give some insight on the actual truck's "suspension"? As in...what is holding the weight of the truck up in the air? As mentioned, I see no springs. Is it possible those are all hydraulic cylinders?

Also, the see-thru differential covers are genious for a show-truck. I believe the chrome, powder-coat, and see-thru diff covers determine that this is a trailer queen, trophy wearin, show truck only. I'd kinda hate to see mud get on that chromed suspension work anyway!

I love the front end with PIAA lights on that sweet front bumper/guard! Those headlights are surely ABOVE the legal height limit though...aren't they!?

Edit: Now that I take a second look, I realize I was oblivious to the hydraulic plumbing the first time I looked at the pics. It's got an extensive hydraulic system on it, from suspension to steering!

Hydraulic suspension, it only has about 1-2 more inches of compression because the rams are almost bottomed out, he can lift it probably another foot by the hit of a switch. Notice the front driveshaft is pretty close to being bottomed out as well.

I'll ask John for the specs on the truck. I am not sure about any of the suspension or offroad limits, but I am sure with some specs you guys could tell me and everyone else on here what it can or can't do.

Lol....yeah I bet

What's up with the exhaust coming out the rear wheel-well. I can understand, since the suspension will only compress about 2", but I just don't understand the 4" pipe out the WHEEL WELL!?

Its not plexiglass.....Its actually just as strong as a metal on...Summit racing sells them, and i thought about buying one....Easy way to check your fluid and make sure everything is ok in there
