    haha, that's the plan man! This is a slow-going project because we're actually engineering and fabricating an entirely new front suspension in-house. I outgrew my shop (garage) and had to move to a larger shop which took some time. The plan is to build more trucks in the future to sell. So we...

    @StenchRV @shortbus4x4 Been slow progress on the truck since I was moving and getting a lot of new tooling set up. I haven't put any miles on the truck since I bought it, still sitting at 86 miles. So it will be a minute before I have any real-world data on how well it works. I don't...

    Haven't gotten to it yet. As far as I know there's no real solution right now. There are a couple of tuning companies working on cracking the ECU protections for the 4500/5500 and I'm keeping in touch with one, if they can get it done it will be possible to edit the number of tires (convert to...

    Hey I didn’t say it’d be fun, but it’s *possible* haha. That’s good enough for me.

    I'm in St. George area. Infinite trails here. @Brad_UT I probably won't be able to until after June 30, I'm moving into a new shop. Any time after then is good with me!

    I bought them as a business directly from Hutchinson, they don't sell them retail. I have a contact there if you are serious about buying some, I can dm you his info.

    Looks like we need to do a Utah meetup with all these rigs around here lately haha. I'm in the middle of moving but I think after, we need to set something up, get a few coolers of beverages, and break these trucks in properly.

    Oh yeah bud they’re heavy af. But I dig them, I knew they’d be the only choice for my build. It was a pain in the ass getting them but having that ability to mount my own tires makes it worth it to me.

    I think they're about 140lbs each. They're heavy. They are a variant of the MRAP wheels yeah, they have the tapped outer ring they mount the light armor things to. They aren't the mil surplus version you can find on eBay or whatnot.

    Yeah this one bolted into the existing nuts welded inside the frame crossmembers. Same deal. The truck is just so heavy if you hit the tank just right on a rock/stump or something like that you could definitely rip it off. You’d have to be doing some pretty gnarly terrain though. The tank itself...

    Quality seems very good. Yeah the line-x coating was extra. I think about $200 more. I wasn't going to get the line-x but they had one in stock, the non-coated one was like 16-20 weeks out or something. Had I known how long I'd be sitting around waiting on other stuff anyway, I would have just...

    Yeah, transferflow told me the same thing, but I decided to go for it anyway. So far I’ve driven about .5 miles since I installed it, so I can’t say for sure haha. It did transfer fuel from the aft tank to the new midship fine though. Since the midship was empty after I installed it. I’ll let...

    Post a build thread man I'm curious about your battery bank. 11kwh is nice. Which fridge did you go with? Your truck looks awesome dude.
