Once the turning was taken care of we turned our attention to trying to keep us in the game when it goes upside down. We were very close to that several times last year thanks to toms awesome courses! We are not stinger fans but it seemed to fit to protect the radiator the best that we can.


We did our best to stream line the bumper and get our superwinch in there high and tight. The frame actually hangs down lower on each side than the bumper. Hopefully it will help our approach angle.

With the new control arms we had to build a new skid plate. Being really low to the ground we thought we could get some use from a plastic skid. We built a frame that holds the transmission and supports the front and rear skids. The plastic is some .5" UHMW. Trying to keep the heat away from the plastic we also made a change in mufflers. The flattest muffler we could find was a spintech which we bought from a vendor here on pirate. A little pricey but a 2.25" thick it was the best option. Talk about stout!
