This is bad ***! Watching that suspension travel is too much fun, my wallet hurts just thinking about that setup. Did you have the shop install the "long bed" fiberglass bed sides and then cut them to fit a short bed? I've never been able to find pre-runner/fiberglass style components for the short beds.

No tabs , the steering is called swing steering. Something Austin uses on his race truck. The Dirt King by design has a very swallow turning radius so we were able to shorten the pitman arm and still go lock to lock. Gives the steering box much more leverage. Even with the big tires it turns as easily as it was before.

Thanks man! Yea I looked all over and no one sells glass for the short bed. I mounted all the fiberglass. I had to chop the bedsides like that because it needs the clearance for the long travel. Nothing I can really do about it. Hopefully it all blends together after I paint it black.

Another short video. Video doesn't do it justice how cool it felt sliding over those dunes like it was nothing.
