ive got a few tire sizes i want to run on it ...  and having adjustibility in the cab will be nice too.  
the plan is for around 24" of suspension travel.  
i live near two big jeep parks, so this will get lots of use, so i want something that will ride decent too

they probably weigh half as much as the 16.00r20s on 5 ton combat wheels

none of the link tabs were up to par for even a go cart, so i cut em all off, and cleaned up the frame so i could have good surfaces to weld to...  the samurai frames have some nasty undercoat material on them

engine and transmission waiting for reinstall and finalizing of the wiring harness


all the old chassis tabs gone

well, thats a good enough update for now...  were welding up the patch panels off and on when at the big shop, but it is not the high priority right now...  
i have two crates that are filling up with the last chassis stuff to get it to roller status.  expect a big update again around november as we are focusing all our efforts to ensure The Monster is there at the monster truck hall of fame in november
