    Looks like a rear bumper, a piece of lexan, and a lot of tape. Pretty interesting design.

    Looks nice nice, always good to see a creation a bit out of the norm, and really catches your eye.
    If I may offer just ones mans opinion, I know some others will concur but concerned about a misconstrued reaction from you arent offering their concerns or rather opinions.
    As sweet as the aluminum arms look and add needed imo unsprung weight which helps keep it grounded, keep the stocks ones handy or buy a set of rpm for spares.
    I wanted to put a set on my FLM build so bad it hurt, this would have made everything down to to internal (2wd) diff Fast Lane Machine aluminum (except the HR sway bars), imo and by measuring which doesn't lie the best machining tolerance wise for go fast rc.
    HR my 2nd favorite for outside the box innovation and proven performance, excellent products imo are a distant second for the FLM tolerances, no pretty anodizing in fact 90% of the machining marks are visible (to me more appealing), however for performance looks arent reverent tolerances are, there trans cases at nearly $70 a pop are worth every penny.
    Now that I'm finished with my morning rant,lol as sweet as they look on your truck which they are gorgeous, their also some of the most tortured parts on your rig, yes they are strong, however that strength has a breaking point and they bend. Now your pretty lower arms are pretty scrap aluminum.
    I finally told my lhs to order a set of FLM arms for my build last week but they will never see anything but a table top, ie shelf queen winter time.
    Don't misunderstand, your ride is awesome and the arms really add to that appeal, they will take quite a beating, depending on the manufacture and grade of aluminum, pretty much everything is billet but always look twice cast aluminum still exist if your not careful and the aluminum grade used will decide there structural integrity.
    Kinda funny, a company named integrity has the worst reputation for machining tolerances among other companys.
    Their name is basically an antonym of there products.
    I think they sell more scaler parts then anything, in fact I'm told for the price there ok for that service, then again the average speed of a scaler is 2 or 3 mph.
    Awesome rig, be proud of what you've done, I wouldn't have felt I did right by you had I not added my opinion about the arms, but remember the plus, extra unsprung weight=better overall grip, less traction rolling without adding to sprung weight.
    I've seen fellas add them to XO-1's for the unsprung weight rather then appearance.
