How badly do your tires rub shocks and links? I'm shining all of mine, at least a little...
Fronts the tires just barely shine up the shocks at full flex/turn, rears none. I spent a fair amount playing with shock tab position and mostly clears tires and axle knuckle by minute amounts.

Little things, picked up a Terapump XL to fit in my 5 gallon fuel jug. So much easier that balancing on rear axle filling the gas tank with the Fuelworx can. Be sure to get the XL version that has the jug cap adapter and longer suction and fill hose.

Well I poured gas on my shoulder again and promptly went in and added this pump to my Christmas list.

4Low Magazine did a subscriber spotlight on my buggy in this months issue. I do have to correct that I do not own Midnight Metalworks or invent the Rockbox 300, I think they got confused as Rob was supposed to have one of his chassis at that event they initially took clean shots and specs of my rig, although mine does have one of his cases in it. Also my tan color body is to be less seen from a distance. ;)

Be sure to check out the current issue and/or subscribe.

Very cool!

Someday I'll build a rig that's magazine worthy...in the meantime, more scratches!

I'm glad the poly panels were new when the magazine took the shots. The Canyons since have scratched and cracked then up pretty good. Been drilling the ends of the cracks to prevent them getting worse and peeling the wrap pieces off as they get bunched up.

Nice build up , cool to see some details on your rig. Any regrets putting your battery under your seat and so close to the muffler?
Thank you. So far haven't had any problems with it there. I do have the heat shield on the exhaust and used some flashing tape on the battery to try to reflect any heat from it.
