ROKMEN Freak Update...now on 42's

The shop LJ, or "The Freak" as many have named it, has been on the road for nearly a year now. The on-road performance is impressive; those who drive it or ride along are shocked that a rig on 42's can drive so well on the street. It tracks perfectly straight and can do 75+ without issue. On the trail it has performed incredibly well and we can't wait to get on some more trails this coming year.

As mentioned above we swapped up to 42's recently. The rig was built around 40's but the larger tires can fit with a little tweaking. We made some custom 6061 aluminum spacers to give the suspension a slight boost and the new VERY LARGE meats fit quite well.

Ill post some more recent picture’s w/ the 42's soon, the one below is from an event in Vegas a couple months ago. We have also been working on a couple new projects at the shop as well so keep an eye out for a couple new build threads.



The story on the spacers is that we needed a quick solution to get the 42’s to fit and went w/ the standard poly jobbers…well they didn’t last 24 hrs (no joke), so when we got back to the shop I did it the right way and made our own.

Now I'm going to have to update my screen background from last fall's version of the Freak to this one!

Curious... Is there a build-sheet for this beast as it currently sits? It would be cool to see everything that went into making it.
