    I bet it's hard to plow snow that way! I thought I'd get to try mine in the snow tonight since we got some last night (our yearly storm), but it's already gone.

    Um no but i can take it apart and take a pic off all you need

    Or i can take better pics of it together.

    You need a extra wheelie bar
    Tie rods ends
    A sheet of alluminum
    A servo and a 3 channel remote and receiver
    Large zip ties to zip tie the servo to the plow-I didnt use them but they will work better
    A large servo horn
    Screws and bolts and nuts
    And a foot of small chains--You can get the harware parts at home depot.
    Oh and a bracket to mount it to the truck...I used a long thing of alluiminum about 3 feet long and 1 inch wide and 1/4 of and inch thick....The i drill and measured holes to mount it to the bottom of the tricks with the skid plates.

    Then i took more and bent it in a U shape wide enough for the wheelie bar to fit over it.

    Haha that would be funny but ill need a big sandbox and more truck and ill have a consrution place haha.

    I was thinking tha it would be awsome to take the rear end off and rig up a straight axle have a drive shaft coming from the center diff, And make a way for the suspension to mount up and stuff.

    I recently got fed up with my MERV, after loads of upgrades it was still getting busted, having problems, and just didn't handle as well or as predictably as the Stampede 4x4 - so i sold the MERV and have rekindled my love for Stampede with a new hummer body and putting it through the paces today at some big ramps - awesome fun.

    Moral of the story - stick with the Stampede and it will serve you well :-)
