Default TT FJ Cruiser

Nothing special but I figured I'd post it up. I've seen 2 blue FJ's on here and fell into the trap. Searched for 3 months for a body and finally grabbed one off fleabay.

Pretty basic build using the scx-10 chassis but I some K44 axles for looks and the width to keep a daily driver look that can hit up the trails. Sorry for lack of pics…

Took axles apart and greased them well and I let the bearings soak in corrosion x.



Wanted to run RC4wd King Shocks but they weren't working without pour movement so I went with some OME's. Bought link material from McMaster-Carr. Pretty dang easy to do yourself this way.


This is where it sits for now. A friend of mine is working on bumpers and sliders. Hopefully I'll have some pics.

K44s look great! Nice rig. I saw that body on ebay, I actually liked the color. The white TT color looks great too.

Thanks guys! I liked the black but the paint job was terrible, and most places I trail is deep woods and I'd like it to show up in a pic or 2… It's actually Sand storm tan. Pics didn't do it justice.

Thanks! Looked at the FJ's you've built for inspiration. I can't wait to get it back. I hope down the road I can do a simple interior and add some scale stuff.

Once the kms winch I want is back in stock I'll order it and a 4 amp HeyOk controller. I totally forgot running gear… right now unless I swap it for my other rigs stuff. AE-2 esc, 27t Axial motor, Futaba servo ?.

yeah, he's had it for awhile now, even before I built mine. I even bent him up a set of identical rails for his when I bent mine for Fj.

It's home for now! Got the electronics sorted out & made some simple inner fenders. I went ahead and pulled the OME shocks out. They were okay holding the weight but once it got moving it was just voicing all over. So I put some Axial Icon shocks on.
