Default FJ45 for mom - First Build

Hello, This is my first rc build besides a few kits. I have watching RCC for a while now and have really learned alot from the talented builders on this site. There are a few things on this truck that I'm not proud of, but I think it will crawl just fine. Any comments or suggestions would be great. I now have a lot more respect for the builders who do really clean & detailed work. It not as easy as it looks.

Chassis & drivetrain - SCX10 Kit
Body - Aluminum

Onto the important stuff

Fantastic body!

I'm subscribed. Can't wait for more progress pics.

I would consider going for less suspension travel. In my opinion it would fit the utility vehicle look of the body better.

Thanks, I haven't decided on limiting the travel or not. I want it to look scale but I want it to be capable as well.

Amazing attention to detail! I have never seen one as well layed out as this. I really like what you did with the battery underneath the seat; that was very creative.
