I've been wanting to build a Stryker DVH for a while, I've gathered a ton of information and finally got most of the angles and modification to the hull figured out. General Dynamics used existing hulls and made modification to them. The front of the hull was the most difficult as it was hard to figure out exactly what mods they did there, but again i figured that out. The rest of the upper hull is unchanged for the most part. I'll be posting photos as I go along.

Lol your probably right but that would be great news either way. Iíve already started The jigs Iím gonna need to keep the bottom hull in line while I pretty much cut the entire rear half off. The only thing that will remain will be the differential housing. I have to keep the rear suspension mounts inline also. Iíve got a plan...hopefully they work out.

Posting pictures here is actually quite simple. You are just placing your image link in the wrong place. All you need to do is paste your image link between the image code brackets, being sure to replace all the text between them (bold below), without any spaces. The spaces are there so the code still shows up for demonstration purposes.

[i m g] paste here [ /im g]

[i mg]http://put.url.here/image.file[/i mg]

Once you do that, your image will show.

An example:

[i mg]http://put.url.here/image.file[/i mg]

[i mg]https://defense-update.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/GDLS_Stryker_A1_10 21.jpg[/im g]

Without spaces:
