    Essential upgrades or essential preventative maintenance?

    Just bought a UDR and i was wondering if you guys have any ideas for essential upgrades I should do straight away, or any preventative stuff i should do?

    It's an expensive truck and I would like to take care of it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Tires need holes cut or burnt in them
    with a hot poker to release captured debris
    Or plug the holes in the rims
    Front center drive shaft
    Rear trailing arms
    are the weak spots

    Definitely the steering servo. It will go out. The fuse blows.

    +1 servo
    +1 tires

    Put automotive grease into gears : pumpkin in the back priority. I use red tacky from Lucas

    Fill the holes in the trailing arms (not broken one since). You can use hot glue, I used Permatex plastic epoxy.

    Then check shocks oil (you can wait for a rebuild after couple runs)

    Reinforce body with mesh and goo is highly recommending.

    Yup. Steering servo. Design team must have had a senior moment.
