Default Rc4wd Cross Country Black Rock

Mudder Putterís jk mall crawler.... (pic heavy)




Not sure if the cross country will come back licenced or be discontinued?

Hereís my build up to date.

Thinking of staying with the stock look for now....

Hereís a video of my pre-run review, if interested.

Hereís how it sat out of box.... compared to scale tf2ís on small 1.55s. I found it fit nicely but itís stance was a little tall imo.





Than started the painting and customizing





..... not sure what to think of the decals. Wish I didnít use them or went with the black. Unfortunately there isnít the same hood decals in black.

FYI

Windows are installed with very strong glue..., not fun getting them off.


Than I modded the mirrors to swing., less chance of bashing them off now.






Here I modded the body mounting posts to get the body to sit a little lower to chassis. Also moved shocks and springs around to give a more scale stance and articulation.




Little interior work..., unfortunately only 3/4 interior




Just about as stock looking as they come



Bumpers and halos installed






Still wasnít happy with how high the body sat.... so I started hacking....

Only the front was a concern/ issue.., front link mounts hitting chassis. Sorry if youíre unable to follow..., cut the mounts down and fastened links a little lower on the same bracket (re-drilled).

Stock


Stock



Drilled before cutting..., (a little tight)



Modded


Modded




Cut off roof clip-tabs.... much easier to slip on and off







Couldnít figure out why the jeep wouldnít rock or sway when driving..., shocks have these large orings that are very tight. Shocks wonít leak but I took them out to get some rocking action when scale driving.




Roof rack came in..., though Iíd dress it up a little.




Lites are powered by 2 AAs in the box on top since I might run the vehicle roofless at times.



Try 1.9ís?






How it sits for now..., although I put the 1.55s back on.

Will have a video released tonight possibly with it on the 1.9s.

Thanks and be blessed
Lance

This is the first time that I've seen the seven slot grill that's behind the original.

Nice job, like the upgrades!
