Default Jeep JK Wrangler (Axial) Build

I am very close to finishing my Jeep JK build. I am using a hard body from a New Bright JK Unlimited and mostly the guts from an Axial Honcho. Right now I am building my front and rear bumpers. After that the tire carrier. Not sure how it will handle, so I am sure there are a lot of tweaks to come.

Obviously I am going to trick it out with lots of scale accessories and finish up the details on the paint. The only thing I have not worked out yet is the emblems.

I hope you like it, and would love for feedback and suggestions.

Decided a new, sleaker body was needed for next season. I still have the old one for trail run. Narrowed the rear to the same width as the front. Lowered the doors. Narowed the bumpers and moved in the rear closer to the body. The tire is now in the back, so my departure angle is pretty good now. Removed the fenders all the way around. This should work really well for next season. I was the last hold out for my club with fenders. This should greatly improve my maneuverability.

Really thin unbacked vinyl. Just glued on the Velcro with fabric glue.

I finally got my other body fixed up. This will be mostly for crusiing through the woods, but I might comp it from time to time. Pretty much what I had before, just shiny again. Biggest difference is no giant spare tire. I also decided to keep the had top on all the time.

Thanks. It's nice having the two bodies now. I can bash on one and cruise with the other. The red body is super top heavy and was killing me at comps. Just never could bring myself to chop the fenders off, since I liked the look so much.
