This is a hot truck. I want to do so much work to mine, but I've got a 4x2. That doesn't mean that I can't make it look like a 4x4, tho. Right? Right?! DON'T RUIN THIS FOR ME!

Anyways, awesome truck.

Have you ever had a sudden loss of control and found that in that instant, you filled your pants with waste? I love you.

Hah. I just got excited. My bad.

Are all desert runners usually 2wd? Or does it just not matter after everything that's done to it?

Usually, but 4x4 prerunning/racing is becoming more popular. Do a search online for Terrible Herbst, they are one of the better known teams with a 4wd trophy truck. Most are 2wd though, I'd say 90% at least.

you really dont need 4x4 if you have LS, or a locker. 4x4 is nice for sand and big steep hills, but flat out open desert keep your speed up feather the gas if your getting stuck in the sand and your good to go. not many companies make 4x4 long travel kits. but its very do-able.

That's pretty cool! I'm going to do a search right now to check these trucks out using this guy > I saw one that was an axle swap ending up in an entire transformation to a rock climber on here or rps.com. Anyways... I should probably be asking this in a seperate post, but what is a "locker" in the automotive sense? I did a search but came up with a "my locker broke" and that's pretty much it.

...nice truck.

Well there arent very many of us so it wouldnt take much to get us all together. I think besides me and you there is only like 2-4 other [relitively active] members in this area. We def. need to wait till it cools down though.
