Those look way kewl Cool . I really like the workable leafsprings for the Jeep. I was thinking it would be cool if he would continue that idea and put out some more workable suspensions for vehicles that have them, both softskin (trucks and such) and also for armored vehicles. The one that comes to mind is the Pz II and all the conversions on that hull.
