    Here's another wild theory of mine: It releases on December 15th. Why? Well that's the day the big, fancy DLC comes out for GTA, of course. So maybe in light of that, the, I'm assuming huge, update will be released just for grins lol. I like to use my imagination over here xD

    @ferrettank One extra thought (and if it was mentioned before, I apologize) can we get dune flags? Maybe use the same physics as the quarter panel mounted antennae with a little orange flag at the top? I know most public land and offroad parks that prerunners and crawlers run at require a front bumper mounted flag of a certain height. Photos for reference:

    Yeahhhhh, you will probably still bend your tie rods :p, we want to keep it as real as possible. :)
    It depends on the budget, but we decided to toss a wrap on ours, thanks to @B25Mitch, he is an amazing graphic designer! ;)

    Definitally a cool idea, but we don't have time to add that for now ;(, maybe in the future!

    Gah you all are always way to quick xD

    It is only a matter of time until someone creates a mod that's sole purpose is to make the tie rods stronger

    We need more prerunners in this game lol. Can't wait to put this against the LKS Prerunner when it comes out.

    itll be rwd vs 4wd so i think the official one will be faster. However I think the lks is stronger as the only mechanical parts that tend to break on it are the wheels.

    they don't even break they just bend, regardless it's not good for going a high rate of speed over an unforgiving desert terrain

    Ferrettank, thank you so much for all your work on this vehicle, we all really appreciate it. Tell the team that we all say thank you, and that the update is amazing.

    Now, my suggestions for improvements.
    1. The vehicle bottoms out hard on big jumps, I dont know everything about tuning, but I believe thats a bump dampening thing, which could be increased.
    2. I have also found that the bump stops are too soft, making them adjustable could be nice.
    3. A skid plate and stronger trans mounts would be cool, a quick

    Of course all these things are fixable with some quick tuning and codes, but just my opinion, its amazing anyways, and these are only the smallest problems.

    Take your time, and your break from work, and enjoy it well, these are just suggestions and I have no need for them to be fixed or improved immediately.

    When I change the Paint Design to Empty this happens;
    Weird patterns on hood, door and roof, taillight spread on windshield, no texture on floorpan and some other interior parts. How can I fix this ?

    I cleared cache already but that didn't fix. I have Dove Pickup mod, could it be the reason ?
