I had to watch it on RCCrawler, it froze up when I tried it above. How much weight does it add to the truck?, It doesn't appear to hurt the climbing ability.

Tks guys

Mike, it's definitely heavier than the stock cage setup because of all the wood. With more weight on the back, plus the fact that it sticks out more at the rear now, it won't perform as well as stock. But I knew this and was willing to sacrifice performance for looks, since I do mainly light trails. I'll swap it to my Jeep Unlimited Pro-Line body for more serious crawls
