Test running the truck on some dirt and a few small hills making sure there is no binding and 4x4 works

4wheel drive works better if you have both hubs locked in!!!!
came up the first hill and spun the back tires abit and thought great somethings wrong with the 4x4 got to the top had a look around and realized I only locked one hub in Doh!!!

I thought my boys deserved to be mentioned as part of the build team seen as how they did do alot of helping grinding, wheel removal and draging the old parts off the driveway.

rear doesnt flex as much as I thought it shoud but the shackles still need a bit of tweaking and front shocks are limmitng the droop a bit as well
