"Blue Crush" JK build
 
I had a pair of axial axles with portal ends laying around and decided it was time i built a JK.

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
are you going with the 2.2s or the 1.9s to match the 1:1? Either will work, but the 1.9s are more scale. Subscribed."thumbsup"

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
The original plan for spyder6's jk was 42s, so I'm gonna stick with the 2.2s also I already have a jeep on 1.9s and the portal ends make it a bitch to get 1.9s to fit...


Once it warms up a bit I'll get it painted, what's the best way to remove the gay mud off it?

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
Search around...there's a video out there on the WRONG way to remove the mud. Try youtube or google. It will really help you and prevent disaster."thumbsup"

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
can a moderator move this to the 1.9 section?

I showed the jk to my buddy whos build im copying, and he said it was WAY too big with the 2.2s, so i modded the portals to accept 1.9s... also added my MTR-ks(two faces) and am working on a bumper now!

I like it a lot better with the 1.9s

Bulldog 04-10-2012 01:03 AM

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
I like big trucks (and I cannot lie)...but the 1.9s look a lot better. Luckily, the 1.9s out there right now are nice and big. I think it looks great. Hack those fenders back and start rockin!"thumbsup"

jeeper03 04-10-2012 08:13 AM

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
Yea it seems to work better with the 1.9s as well! Bulldog, I have to give u a little credit too as I forgot u recommended the 1.9s. I'm gonna keep the fenders as full as possible, as I like how the rear tires tuck up in the fender.

that body gives it a nice scale look

Bulldog 04-11-2012 01:11 AM

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
I tried. The fenders just seem too stock for me. I'm a big fan of the aftermarket modded types. You'll come around!:lmao:

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
I would go with a full set of flat fenders, that would really set it off."thumbsup""thumbsup""thumbsup".

jeeper03 04-11-2012 07:44 PM

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
its gonna stay stock fenders for now... my tj had flat fenders, then i ended up cutting them all the way off, this one is suppose to remain more tame, well see how long that happens tho :D

Hmmm. Deja VU all over again. It looks like you managed to save it though. The other fellow didn't fair so well.8) I might not have made myself clear. The video shows a guy doing the same thing with brake fluid and melts the whole front end off! It was kinda funny to hear the disappointment in his voice!

jeeper03 04-13-2012 01:12 AM

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
hahaha yea i watched that video... and ive had good luck removing part of the dirt, but i wiped it off after a few minutes... i guess i didnt wipe very well :lol: i was able to save it pretty well

http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/g...r/0d5b4d60.jpg

im gonna try to spray it tomorrow, but i was unable to find the cosmos blue, so i grabbed sail blue so we will have to see how close of a match it is...

jeeper03 04-13-2012 12:33 PM

Re: "Blue Crush" JK build
 
I think my color choice is a little lighter than the 1:1... Well see once it is all finished tho
