Every time I see the updates here and on IG I try to justify dropping some cash on one of these. I wonder how well my big ass would fit in one of the Grunts?

Iím 6í 200lbs. Iíd say you could be a little heavier but taller would be pushing it. The evo3 looks like it would fit a taller guy better. Basically the same chassis but looks longer behind the seat.

your sliders are on upside down and you need to tie those bump can mounts together. they will rip themselves off in short order the way they are mounted.

They are going to be tied into a basket that also holds a toolbox/cooler. The coil sliders? Had a buddy help me put them on, guess Iíll have to fix that.

yea fox is dumb and ships them from the factory upside down. long side goes down to protect the bottom of the shock from getting chewed up by the springs and if left that way you run the risk of the slider splitting.

Got some stuff done this weekend. Used some 1/8Ē smoked clear polycarbonate for the side and behind seat panels, painted the hood, mounted ps reservoir, and finished the brake lines. Still need steering lines, limit straps installed, and wiring.









Also finished the dash and installed the tcase shifters.
