This custom of Monkeywrench was made so that his equipment could all be removed allowing him to blend into society. Monkeywrench was one of my favorite Dreadnoks as a child, the trident spear gun was awesome when I was a youngster, but it is pretty unrealistic. I often gave Monkeywrench a Gung Ho V1 grenade launcher and a Backstop V1 revolver. I always used Monkeywrench as a Dreadnok that worked with explosives. Once I decided to make this custom the ideas were already there and it was a very simple custom to make. I knew I wanted him to have a realistic grenade launcher, pistol, a melee weapon with a trident end, as well as removable explosives. Realistic versions of all of these items are readily available today. I decided to keep some of the original looks and colors of Monkeywrench. The vest stayed a dark maroon and the lower legs were kept so that the bandannas would be present. I really think that most of the equipment of the Dreadnoks would be worn and weathered so the paint was applied to give it that specific look.

As always Storm, you have the ability to add a refreshing dose of realism to GI Joe customs without making them dull or boring.
Nice work on the vest and the set of accessories are awesome. Love the trident spear...  Twisted Evil

Thank you Livevil. Comments from you and other ARAH customizers always mean so much more to me. I am glad that you like what I have been trying to do with my Dreadnoks. I really wanted all of their gear removable, it just adds a nice touch of realism to them in my opinion.
