Look amazing.
maybe the lights were last minute. i agree too. some round ones right out in front would be killer. this whole build once again is awesome though.

Presumably the paddle tires are meant for sand dunes. I'm wondering, why not use paddle tires all the way around since you've built it 4x4? are the finned front tires more practical for steering in sand or...?

Yes more for steering in sand if I was going to just sand drag and go straight I would run paddles in front and rear

Wow man. I have to say that this is one of, if not my favorite build. I loved your last bronco and this one is better with more power. Looking forward to videos. Sick work and done quickly.

now that you have been wheeling this ifs machine, what are your feelings?

how does it feel in the sand with AWD?

hows the steering?

are you getting vibrations?

what would you have done differently in retrospect?

I like it in the sand, the steering is all good, no vibrations yet that I could feel or hear anyways,and as of nowi like it as it is cant really think of what I would want to change. I really need some more drive time in it. I never had to put it in 4wd just 2wd everywhere

Only 11 pages, and probably one of the sickest projects I have seen on PB.
Now all we need is a VIDEO of the beast
