Sorry I haven't been posting up much about this project lately.
It's mostly because I've been working late into the night and it's too dark for good pictures.

But I'm supper excited to announce that The Honey Badger is back up and running on all four again.

It's been a long road and a lot of work. But she drives so well! And it looks freaking beast!

I've got to throw out so huge THANK YOU to Travis and Julie Hurley. Their help on this was instrumental in getting it done this quickly.
I couldn't have done it in this time frame otherwise. Thank you guys for your hospitality and patience.

Another huge THANK YOU to Justin Morgan for all the tech support as well as the hands on help in the garage. I always appreciate your knowledgeable support on these truck projects.

I'd also like to thank Adam Prosise for the machine work he did on my hubs. They look great and work perfectly.

Thanks to Bill Toco for letting me barrow his hubs. Even though there were other malfunctions that prevented me from being able to test out the system that weekend. I still really appreciate it.

Thanks to everyone else who helped in any way.

I'm super stoked to finally have her up and running again.

Default The Honey Badger Build, etc.

A couple of pictures from the first real trail test.
Everything went well. She performed outstandingly.

Outstanding work Travis!

But seems like a lot of work for what any ol' mini truck with 30x9.50 BFGs can do.

I know it's a shake down, not an actual test. ;-)
