Looks sweet. Are the rear fenders attached to the axle or the frame?

i think it would look 19x better if the frame was black, but still an awesome truck nonetheless.





Check out my build thread!

Nice, love it

I agree, frame should be black.

Rear fenders are attached to the frame. It would look bad if the front wheel well gap changed when lifting and the rear didnt.

I think it would look terrible with a black frame- and everyone just paints frames black, cant do the 'normal' thing

i figured the gray frame was to be different. it doesn't look bad at all, just my opinion that black would look better. the truck still kicks so much ass.

maybe not black since as said, too many black frames, but the grey just looks to much like primer. would need something that goes with the yellow but is more unique. either way that thing kicks so much ass.

At Scrape someone offered to do a professional photoshoot for free, so the plan is to have good pics around the end of next week- depending how scheduling goes.
I have put about 1000km on it so far. It seems to work great other than an annoying vibrating noise while driving really low, which should be fixed tonight. Other than that i have just been enjoying it and havent even thought to take anymore pictures.
Last week i put new bigger injectors (mechanical ones wear over time) and turned up the injection pump- it really woke the truck up, but i may turn up the pump more eventually since the turbo still has no troubles at all keeping up with the fuel (egt's stay below 800*F so more fuel will make more power yet)

A few new pictures- there are a ton more that he took, just waiting (impatiently ) to get to see them. Was a great shoot, and Steve was a real nice guy to work with. Enjoy.

new pictures

Great pics! Love the truck no force him to give more than 2!

those 2 pics are awesome, how do you get them to look so "magazine" effect?






Re: My tow rig project- old school style

^Lighting and a very nice camera with some HDR by the looks of it.

Awesome pictures, I love this truck.

Any plans for a custom build trailer for the Cav that is also on airbags?



Paying someone to install parts and bragging about it being fast, is like watching someone bang your wife and being proud to raise their kids.

Get a cameraman with lots of skill to shoot them Steve has done a great job with these ones and has a whole lot more on the way.

Dont have the cav anymore, its parted out. I will likely build a trailer for the new track car next year though.
