I'd say this truck needs some bigger tracks!!! Think about the amount of weight on them, and the amount of travel they would see. I'd think something more aggressive, like tank tracks, would suit an 18 wheeler. Not as long as tank tracks, but in terms of appearance and functionality.

Id say your right.But im not sure how id do it.I think i could cut the back fender off and make it extend further towards the back.Ill do that thanks.Alright Got the plow done.

You could almost do away with the fender entirely. It's not there to cover a wheel anymore. Doing away with the fender gives you alot more space for a big track. I think it would look pretty sharp.

Well i modeled an old hayes log truck awhile ago and got this idea.I think it will work pretty well.Im liking it.Im gonna also make a peterbilt trax box truck and put my original trax on it sence it wont carry as much weight.But i want to keep the fender to keep spray and things off while running through the mountains.also to help maintance you can stand on the fenders.It kinda looks like a bulldozer right now but once i get the cab it sure wont.

What if you mounted the lights on the top of the snow plow? I've seen some like that, where there's a bracket that holds them above it.

Thanks about the bar i will do.Also the lights are fox lights they need to be kinda low to work good.Thats why i want them on the side middle.
