Default Jeep Wrangler YJ....

I decided to do a build for the new wrangler body coming out.
it will be a leaf sprung chassis and follow all the curves of the real chassis.
the chassis is made out of 1/4" alum and has a c-channel as well. going to run a rc4wd tranfer case and use a axial tranny to power it.
here are a couple of shots do far....

I'm dying to see how the body looks on it, and with those tires. Awesome frame!

got the body in today.

body fits nice on the chassis. just need to figure how high i want it to sit, and to find a good mounting place.

Looks like a good start! Tires are very large. Mud thrashers look better

I'm new to this and I'm starting to plan a scale jeep build. I'm really curious where you guys are getting the bodies from? Ebay? I've seen a few of the tamyia jeeps but they are 400.00-500.00 is there another source?
