    Got bored today Figured would do something with one of my Summits.

    Stock body height.


    Didn’t really like the huge open fender wells so I flipped the bumper post upside down front and rear, and cut the body post mounts. I am running the aluminum LT120 Rockers and 112mm red aluminum pushrods.

    Front bumper with mount flipped


    rear bumper flipped


    With body post cut, the truck now sit just at maybe a little below the bottom of the battery door.

    Nice! Did the same with mine, maybe not so low, but here:



    I like them better with lowered body!

    It also allows me to swap in the e-revo body without changing the front post

    Did you snap off your front skid plate or trim it?

    See the space between the skid plate and front bumper on my truck. I trimmed the skid plate because when I first inverted the summit bumper mount, the bumper and skid plate interfered. Then I bought the e-revo bumper mount, which has less of an angle to it. so now I regret trimming my skid plate (only a bit)

    I'm with you mike. I don't think I've ever seen a summit that kind of abuse. Theres no way I'd ever try doing something like that. It almost looked like you were trying to destroy it.
    I really should be working.

    when my truck was new i used to beat the he** out of it almost daily, took the front diff apart a few weeks back and it still looked brand new inside. Its almost 2 years old and still going strong on the stock 775. (I have no idea how)
