Another add to the scarp heap of my “Brilliant Ideas?”

Did anyone wonder about those tubes on the front and rear bumpers on my Vanquish vs410 pro?
Let me try to explain my madness?
I've tried a couple rc winch anchors but they don't seem to work good enough for me.

Now I wasn't at the hardware store looking for an anchor solution, but during that visit I saw these thingies. And thought, and wondered, might these work as land anchors?
The thingies,I later found out, are Eye Lag Screws used for hanging drop ceiling grids.
So, I'm giving the drop ceiling anchor screws a try. I've tried them on my basement “rock pile” and they show promise.
OK, then how to carry them on the truck? Again the hardware store to the rescue. One half in. PVC pipe fit the bill. To keep the lag screws from falling out, I initially used some trimmed knelling pad foam. Not ideal! And then I found more thingies. The local hardware store had these flexible plastic desk grommets for passing cables through a desk top. I believe they might work.
I've found that paint, at least the types I've tried, don't adhere well to PVC. So, I used shrink tubing to cover the PVC.

I'm wondering if any one else has tried any of this? I've learned one thing in the age of the internet, there are few original ideas. If I thought of this then some one else, somewhere, has also thought of it. Let me know if you have and your experiences with eye lag screws as RC land anchors.

Received this Vanquish 410-SP as a Christmas gift and have been slowly building and testing it since then. I'm going to have to get it out in the dirt soon, but you know how that goes. That first glob of mud, that first scratch, that first dunk in the water, well it's hard to get past that.

I wanted to try this chassis because of the motor location. The weight, ya gotta love it low and forward! There were also a bunch of things I've seen other folks doing that I've been meaning to try. So hell, why not throw um all at a new truck! Will that be a mistake? Maybe!

Here is a list of what I've thrown into the 410:
1. Servo winch – Reefs
2. Tekin Steering Servo - T-440
3. DIG - VP
4. FT overdrive – VP 21%
5. Rear Winch – RC4WD, Wireless (cause I'd already used all five channels) (Has it's own battery)
6. Remote drag control.
7. Holmes Hobbies - Puller Pro V2 2700 kv
8. Tekin – RX4 ESC

I had the Pitbull TEMCO NDT tires when I first photographed this Power Wagon but decided to install the 1.55 rock beasts. The NDT’s looked so small and how would they work? I still don’t know how they work in scale, but I’ve been watching a lot of Youtube videos of vintage Jeeps using the NDT’S. They work amazingly well.
What do you think of the looks of the NDT's?

Pro-Line Dodge Power Wagon with their utility bed. On a Cross chassis. This is my most recent attempt at rusting/weathering. I learn something every time I try, but I've got a way to go. Truthfully, I build these more as props for my photos, but they must also crawl and this one worked better than expected.
I'll be tweaking the body and adding a few more details, maybe an interior and driver, but this is the general look.

Testing iPhone

Shot this video with an iPhone 11 Pro. Harder to shoot the low angles, harder to hold than a dedicated camera, but video looks great. Going to get a Movi iPhone gimbal to make it easier to use. Edited on a IPad Pro using Luma Fusion.
