    Truck looks good, I agree with the bumper mounts, and they’re actually cheap. Other thing is to swap your body screws to something with a larger head, those will pull through those washers.

    Those are sealing washer so they are galvanized rubber on one side and steel on the other… I think the whole washer would pull through the body before the bolt pulled through the washer??

    I have bashed my X-Maxxes extremely hard and I have yet to have a problem with them pulling through. My bodies are fully Shoe Goo-ed and Fibataped so that probably helps too.
