    I agree! The weight should definetely help with a better LCG. I'll know once my tires and foams come in!

    Recieved the 34T pinion from HR today. Installed, got me 5-6 mph more.

    Also figured out why the front was shaking (other than the fact that the tires are separating). The steering linkage came off the hallow ball. Runs like a champ now.

    Leak prevention kit for the shocks is installed! Seems legit so far. I also got bored today and began this project...

    I cut some vinyl on our plotter and made these vinyl stickers to put on the panels. Came out so much better than I'd have expected.

    Needless to say - These are now for sale for $18 shipped.

    Yes. Only thing I've changed is the pinion gear.

    So is that 5-6mph on all batteries or just on the 4s?

    That's on 6s. I've never ran 4s before.

    Theoretically a lower C.O.G would work in a sprung chassis, not so much in the wheels. You're better off having lighter wheels and tyres resulting in less rotational mass and less unsprung weight. But don't quote me..

    That is accurate. I misspoke. What I should've said is that I agreed with the above post, that the added weight would help keep it on the ground better.

    Finally had the opportunity to get out and run the UDR with the new vitavon wheels and nomad tires. All I can saw is WOW. These wheels add a good amount of weight and the tires are superior to the stock tires no doubt.

    They look awesome. So do you still need to glue the tyres to the rims?

    No, you do not. The bead lock holds them perfect.

    This is an extremely great build, thanks for the input. I saw these wheels I think on Google Images awhile back and wondering where the **** they came from, I'm definitely interested in getting 6 of them. I will refer to this thread for pointers. I've been researching for more wheel weight on the rear and possible rear upper link geometry to decrease rear squat and have the uppers push more on the front end. I may make a thread on this since I don't see any as of yet.

    Arthur makes very nice wheels, as well as other super nice parts for the UDR. I just tightened up the rear springs and the rear has handled very well.

    Added front and rear GPM sway bar kits with the thicker bars. Holy rigid! Also added resr stainless links and front tie rods.

    That swaybar kit makes a big difference, way more beefier than stock. With the design of the truck is absolutely superb, but, when you see and feel the comparison of the stock and aftermarket swaybars why be so cheap with them as once installed you automatically feel the difference before driving just by the way it sits and when just handling it like normal during repairs let alone putting power to it.

    Totally agree. Finally had the chance to run it yesterday and boy what a difference in stability. Takes high speed turns even better now.

    They're much softer, so if anything they grip more. The GPM sway bar kit is what helps with the rolling. On 6s, just take the corners with the right throttle and you can stop the rolling.
