Well after my July front flip at the local tuff truck event I made the choice to build a new and safer rig. The old rig held up for two years of abuse, she has been rolled, flipped, jumped and repaired to many times now. It was time to strip her down for a complete rebuild or start new. After much thought I started looking for a new chassis. I must have looked at every brand out there. I got a few local guys building twisted fab rigs, and another PS Bruiser running around. After a few phone calls I decided to go with PJ from M&M Off Road. Being a new rig it has to have a new name, the old one was Viki, the other woman in my life according to the wife. The new one will be Victoria, her better looking sister.

Ok, time for the run down.

M&M Off Road 4 seat custom chassis with CJ front clip
Gen 3 408 stroker built for bottom end TQ
TH 400 with a lot of good parts
Atlas 3.0 with 300M outputs and comp gears
Rear Solid 14B third Ruff Stuff housing 5.38 Spool 4340 shafts
Front Mega High Nine Ruff Stuff housing RCV shafts locker undecided
Willwood Brakes all around thanks to Easyrick
Trail Ready 17s with 42 Rockers
16" Swayaway coil carriers and triple bypass shocks
Profender Bumpstops ( wanted to try them)

First two pics are the old rig. I have posted these before, but I figured I'd throw them in at the start as a farwell.

Third pic is the new chassis and them some parts

Excited

Bad ass photo!! I am very excited to be working on this project. Its coming together and i look forward to getting my hands on some of those primo parts.. This thing should look good flying. This RG1 chassis is getting some extra tube and .188 wall A,B,C pillars on top of the sliders and main sub frame. This is to help hold up to some of the abuse we can see Trey can produce. (See Photo for confirmation)HA HA HA CIMG1772.jpg

Me to, chances are i'll probably see you around on the trails here in Michigan. I think I looked and talked with a dozen or more chassis builders, before going with an MandM.

Not sure what they are made of. I think they are the same material just held to a tighter tolerance.

Advance Adapters is proud to release its Atlas competition, heavy duty gear sets. As vehicles get built with bigger tires and more horsepower, things have to improve to compensate. The new gear sets have an increased Torque Capacity of 15%, an overall life expectancy increase of 300% (under standard operating conditions), an overall efficiency gain of 2 to 5% which allows cooler oil temperatures due to the increase in gear set efficiency, a reduction in gear noise of 3 to 5% in 4WD LOW, and a input shaft speed of 4000RPM.

Putting the rear suspension together as we wait on Aluminum hubs from BT.

Looked over this when I dropped the scout off and talked about your build with PJ some. Seems like this is gonna be a beast!! Can't wait for more progress pics (even if it does hold up dads scout a little).
