Got any pics of the class 1/pre-runner in the background?

Looks good. Wondering why he's not going with a fabricated center section for the 9"?

about 12 inches the way the shocks were set up
and i will get a pic of the other two buggys in the shop and the bug


the reason for the non fabricated housing is he can set what ever length he wants on either side plus the cost is cheaper doin it this way plus currie doesnt offer it the way he wants

So........whats happening to that front axle? I'm sure someone would love it for a SAS project.

Keep it up, I love that body style, and I love the prerunner look, so this is a match made in heaven. Sweet paint job on the truck too!
