I guess you didn't try very hard then...

One minor cut in the cage and another in the body and I'm on my way to a Jeepspeed.

I hope your doors are missing so you can get in and out.

Nice. I love the Honcho bodies. I actually fitted one to my AX10 Ridgecrest. Or I guess now it's an AX10 Honcho.lol

Nah, Jeepspeed Jeeps need to keep the doors intact.

Keep in mind I'm only using the rear cage - I have no idea if a full Honcho will fit.

And now that major construction is done, The tedious job of masking with liquid mask and tracing begins!

Im considering using the honcho cage inside the XJ - you think there will be any issues with it fitting?

As that's what I'm doing, no, you shouldn't have much trouble. I cut out a portion of the bottom between the two screw points, and I'll need to hard mount it to the chassis, but that's easy stuff.

the dingo fits nice inside my proline xj as interior. but its not full interior. the honcho rear cage should be sweet.

Of all the builds so far that's the only one to point out the servo winch setup thanks for the info!

Both good choices. I'm probably going to use what I have on hand. Either Bomber, Yeti TT or Wraith interior is the best I'll be able to muster.

Not a problem, probably one of my favourite add-ons Axial did. Really speaks to the comp guys on that one.

Lots of practice - and ten years of medical school. Of course I flunked out and only needed one credit to graduate.

Wheels, for wheeling. I really like the look of these Vanquish Method Roost's.

You get what you pay for!

I don't get it. I've seen a couple folks moving the trans around to flip it, and while that certainly makes it look more, realistic-ish, you have to give up a lot straight away.

1. You lose the servo winch mount
2. You nullify the waterproof receiver box
3. You change the vehicle's near-perfect weight distribution
4. You reduce battery tray size.

All in the effort to make more room for an interior? I can definitely work around the hump as it is, and not have to modify anything!

Maybe I'm underthinking it?

I've been scratching my head at that too, I won't lie the realism of the tcase on the rear would be great but I haven't been able to figure out a way while retaining all the good things.
