    Are you just going to get rid of the pickup completely? That body is perfect for a dually, looks so scale.

    Hey James!

    What are the things you need in the rear for the dually? What Bandit parts?

    Thanks for clearing that with me. I couldn't see the mm size it was. Hope that someday I will build one of these too!

    I made it to lowes last night and picked up the stuff to start the flatbed and finish the chassis extension pics up later today

    got a little work done today the bed mock up was to wide. I will be cutting it down






    So I sent my wife to the hobby store earlier to pick me up some paint when she got there she called and asked what color I wanted I told her it was up to her to surprise me this is what I got I think it would look pretty good yellow

    Thanks for the vid! Its probably not that he has too much time on his hands, he probably just uses the every minute of the free time he has doing this.

    Hey james... I notice that the bandit arms are adding toe in on the rear. The duallies make it look even more pronounced. You could buy a set of rear bearing carriers that have added toe in, and put them on in reverse. This would take out some of the toe in and look way better. I like the extension. You can use a stock rear shock mount to extend the chassis. I did this one for a pede, but it could easily be transferred over to the different length of your slash extension and is a very solid and strong mod:

    Cool i like your Chassis-Extension you have one fpr the rustler? I dont want to spoend the $ on the strc Extension. I dont think it is from the bandit arms my wheels moveed a 1/8 back and forth it had wheel bushings in it. i put wheel bearings in it it helped a lot but still has a good bit of play in it i think i need new hub carriers.?

    Made some progress on the back cab mounts

    Bandit arms def have toe in built in. I know anza makes rear carriers that will take out 2 of the bandits 2 to 3(cant remember how much it has). You may be able to find a perfect set to make the axles square to each other.

    Just thought of it, but maybe taking the studs out of the proline mounts, and using velcro to hold the body on(no holes or big ugly twist offs) would have been cool... Sorry I did not think of it before you put holes in the body 8(
