Awesome Trooper! That thing is really going to turn some heads wherever you go. When you're finished with the build you should write an article about the build and send it to fourwheeler network. Maybe they'd publish the build in an issue of fourwheeler.

Great work I look forward to seeing it done. Do you have any additional measurements or information on the dash, I'd like to do something with mine, just not quite sure what yet. Thanks Ben

I was wondering what was going on with your build, hadn't seen anything in a while, the sliders look great, and sturdy. I like the idea of cutting the rockers out for the extra clearance. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the dash. Really well thought out and a beast of a build!

Well he hasn't even logged on since February, so I'm not so sure we'll ever see how this turns out. :(
