Thanks man, yeah I have seen the poly performance non narrated vision of that vid. Pretty cool, wish it didn't get shut down 20 mins in lol.

No updates yet, but I am going to the off-road expo in a couple weeks collect some new goodies. Going to look for stuff to get it racing: GPS, Intercom, Race radio, Helmets etc. Also hoping to get some bedsides while I'm down there.
Im definitely late to the show, what engine are you running in your truck and what tires were you running out there? I go to Pismo 2-3 times a year and now have a play toy to take out into the sand, and was wondering what your set up is.

I swapped from a 2.3 5spd to a 4.0 OHV Auto with 5.88 gears in the rear. Running 33x12.5 ATs on 15x8 rims. I def liked the manual in the sand, but the auto is nice in the desert, which is more important.

Had a good time at the expo, mainly looked around getting prices on a bunch of things I will need soon. But I did order new 3" 5 point harnesses with sternum straps. The 2" haresses I have been using are very old and uncomfortable. Also picked up some bedsides. I really wanted flat tops but I had to take advantage of the good deal at the McNeal booth. They look much better than the last trophy sides I had, should have them on shortly.

I paid $150 for the harnesses with all the goodies, normally around $250 though for what I got. And I picked up the bedsides for only $300.

I kind of liked the TT besides though, lol. But I agree they didn't fit in well.

My harnesses came in yesterday, look like they are going to be comfy.



Also a better pic of the glass, hoping to put these on this Sat.
