    It should fit the bill nicely. Test fit a set on the other truck, I really like the look and stance.

    Thanks! I think the 2.2 tire will just up the awesome factor, plus they are the right kind of tire.

    Progress! Not a ton, but it's some. Got the transmission assembled and mounted in the truck yesterday and built the drive shafts. Decided to go 2300kV this time around and run 4S. Just need to drill the holes for the battery trays and then it's on to the shock hoops!

    More progress! We are printing out the panels for the cab right now, so hopefully in a few days we will have something that resembles a truck to show! Today I got the front bumper brackets cleaned up and mount on the bumper, then mounted the whole assembly to the frame rails.

    Cab hinge for some tilty action just like the real ones! Also mocked up the front shock hoops.

    Wheelbase stretched out to 437mm. The previous truck was 393mm. This truck will be quite a bit longer and wider than the first one!

    Mocked up rear shock hoops. Took some thinking and two revisions to get them to sit here since we flipped the transmission. I had to notch the gear cover for the right side hoop to fit where it needs to be. Since this truck is so much longer than the M-55, we will need a short carrier shaft off the transfer case to keep our driveshafts an acceptable length. Plan to use another transfer case output shaft, a super short WB-HD driveshaft and some printed plastic magic.

    Still got TONS to do, but parts are coming off the printer pretty quickly (knock on wood) so it will start taking shape very soon!

    Couple more parts off the printer and ready for lots of sanding and filing.

    Starting on the cab, got the front nose piece and one door printed out. Sanding and filing like crazy on this one.

    Half of the cab floor, still lots of work to do.

    These are the section just behind the cab and in front of the rear box.
