I saw you can rip the axles apart earlier in the thread, can you add electronic lockers?

Hmmm, haven't checked, but I bet someone makes lockers. The diffs are locked full time though. ------ Follow up post added September 29th, 2013 09:20 PM ------

At this point I think I am at about $800 for everything. I haven't kept track.

Here are a few pics of the truck cab body I built. This one's MUCH lighter! Hopefully less rollovers with this one.

Get Spiderman away from the winch line before he loses a leg. Or a head.

I figured with his Spidey senses he could jump out of the way pretty quick.

Ironman had never been wheeling before so we took him out to Tengan Ridge and Courtney Off Road Park. Tengan Ridge is a steep 50% grade rocky hill climb with lots of pine needles to make it slick. We ended up having to use the Pull-Pall at the top due to lack of winching points.

Then we hit the off road park (local construction site) to test out the new suspension. On the way home we drove the gutter chutes for a challenge.
