    LOL no doubt about that, it would be an absolute monster.

    Still, you can get a complete set of 1:1 tires for that price.

    thanks guys comments have been great. those rc4wd Demolisher tires would be sweet, can anyone get me a set to review? lol im sure those tires need a review to get them selling at that cost.
    yeah my tires are about shot currently eyeing up the Roc Loc though, i want zero offset rims though, im plenty wide already.

    i tryed bolting my bumper to the front skid, will see if the bumper mount holds up, that ones just a summit front bumper mount upsidedown and then drill some holes through em where they overlap.







    got a tiny bit of articulation there

    How does this do High-Speed wise? And, is that rear steer?

    yeah its rear steer.
    as far as high speed wise, what did you have in mind, lowering the gc down by moving the pushrod settings? and more stable smaller tires? or how it does with stock tires(not ment for more than 20mph) and the truck all they way jacked up? im kind of limited in speed right now as im running dewalt/evx2 either 4 or 5s, not sure how fast i can get it, got her setup kindof slow right now. let me know what settings you have in mind, might try testing it.

    So its very cool, being all wide and stuff, but is there any benefit? It seems to me that whenever the distance between the tires increases the clearance needs to double or I end up hung up on the skids. I think that is one more benefit the 2.2 crawlers seem to have, they don't get high centered as easily.

    a good point, very true, i need taller tires with zero offset for that reason.
    i was more into the ground clearance i got from doing the mod, than the width, it added about 1.25" of up and down travel to the suspension which is really nice: you can see that in the pics. 2.5" of travel total. the cost of width though 4" which instead of the wheel going over the rock and pushing up on the suspension, the wheel is now on the ground and the rock is centered underneath the truck and soon you highcenter. the best way for ground clearance is bigger tires, which i now need more than i did before.
    so benefit: more travel, more ground clearance, more stable.
    weakness: highcentering.

    You should try some wheel barrow tires, be alot cheaper than the RC4wd ones
