Hell yeah. Cool things happening up there! Everything is looking clean and tidy. “Hanky Oinks” 2.0 are looking titties.

What rear hubs are you running?

Thanks man. I definitely feel I stepped up my hanky oinks game. I'm running Speedway Endineering Grand Nationals. Have you seen the Sway Away/AFE hubs?

Lol but it will give me a better platform for something like a 3.5 V6 out of a Mistang or what not🤔. Red 5 is still kickin. Completely replaced/rebuilt the engine. Tessa is dailying it until we sell it for a mommy rig. The Ranger can do Buck Rock no problem

Also I decided to buy one of those rear light bar things. This one was a lot cheaper than baja designs

if there is nothing wrong with it like cracking then i would leave it. I just rebuilt mine after being 30 years old. started to show some cracks.

a solid one is good but the rubber helps the the vibration. if you are planing on it being both street and dirt, i would leave the rubber rag joints
