With so much going on at the shop we finally got some pictures up..
Fledge’s owner, a long time Rokme Militia member, has wheeled the serious trails of the West for the last five years. Though Fledge was well built with bolt-on kits and parts, the owner was ready to narrow his focus from an expedition style vehicle to a serious rock-crawler that was also family friendly. Fledge needs bulletproofing with exceptional off-road capability to get the family through the trail and safely home again without the need to trailor.
With a few consults, some plans, and a test drive - the owner knew taking Feldge to a whole new level on the Freak platform was definitley the way to go.
Following our Keep it Simple, Keep it Solid approach - Fledge will be completely converted to our Freak Platform, and gone through thoroughly to remove, repair, and simplify previous modifications. Fledge will also get some some custom touches not seen yet on the Freak platforms.
