Hi folks.

Just an update on the set. I've had mine in place for some time now and it might be a good idea to strengthen the rear axle with some metal rod as I've noticed the weight of the kit puts a lot of pressure on the rear axle, especially the rear wheel joints. Alternatively glue the rear wheels solidly in place so they can't turn and are rigid before loading up your truck.

Hind sight is a great thing!

The more recent options form Resicast are hollow underneath to help compensate for this, so much lighter overall.

Just an observation.
