good luck getting anywhere close to the work joe has put into the legend. that thing is beyond awesome. it takes a lot of builds to get things to ""big and bad."" your always gonna break something, and then have to find way of making it better. nothing wrong with that, just dont expect it to come out perfect and never have any problems.

You can make the big tires work w/o gettin into the body i bet... Dove the front and rear and i think you'd be good.. move the front axle forward some too..
