So the diesel wagon has reached the end of its general build. It's met all the criteria now to fulfill its name as a diesel wagon. And is now been christened the "Maple Wagon"
There is still minor things to be done but it's reached that point that upgrades are going to be as much maintenance as anything else. Like a dynaloc free spin kit.
Really happy with this build. And plan to continue to abuse it untill it's really dead.

Moab as been done and conqured. Even Been to the top of the world. And I can't wait to do it again. But now it's time to get the bastard wagon rolling.

Truck looks great! Awesome pictures sir. Just want to say, I have both Dynatrac and Spyntec free spin kits and while both are absolutely top quality, the Spyntec is better engineered for sealing out the elements. That seems important for your location, so you might want to give them a look.

So minor update. Nothing really has been going wrong with the truck. I drive it pretty hard daily and it's just crossed 450k km. So that's something. I did pull out the lt leaves and build a custom pack off the pw leaves. It's about 20% softer than the wagon pack but not quite as soft as the thuren but it's been good. I'm happy with it. The lt leaves are being wasted on this truck and will get put to use on something much more fun. Also had to put a new set of tires on. Damn wear items

Here's some pics

That's a lot of miles - but it is a diesel :rockon:
Are you able to run those studs year round up there?

I am yes. But this time around I have a second set to wear down come summer. At least that’s the plan. What’s awesome is with this many miles the truck is still pretty tight. Maintenance is a big deal.
