Chrome pen on the grill. It will look great when I put the covers over the reflector.
The difference between class one and class two.

Got the full rig out on the rocks. Scratches everywhere.
Glad that’s over with.

It really did great. With smooth tires and 295mm wheelbase I was expecting eight climbs on my test corse. It did Fifteen of the eighteen climbs possible with my cheater rig and 6x6. And is surprisingly well balanced.
I only had to flip it over by hand twice.

Class 1 is supposed to be a road going vehicle that would be used as a daily driver and outfitted for trail use.

So I painted my workbench to match a road.

But now maybe I’m thinking it looks like a drag strip. 🤔

Sorry about the lighting condition. I just wanted to try the trailer out. I wish the stabilizer leg folded up. That is going to be a thing in the trails.
But the rest is great .made some wood wheel chocks and a strap to hold it . I’ll probably use the winch line to hold it.

I got the light kit tonight. Super simple to install since it is made for it.

Something about light. I just like it sometimes.

There was a big gap between the bottom of the grill and the bumper. And the bumper stuck out to far. I flipped the bumper bracket around cut it up so the bumper recessed into the frame. And I cut 10mm off the frame.

One thing I really like about the hard body is how easy it is to repair and modify.

I was able to fill the gap with a piece I cut off the bed of the class 2 truck.
