''Cherokee To Chuggy'',a AMW built SCX10 2
 
I started this SCX10 2 kit in October of 2016. :shock:
The build started as just a kit, The first mod was to make a straw roll cage with interior. I used hot glue for the straw joints and a Axial Yeti interior, after the cage was made I painted it black and hot glued the cage and interior to the body.

Timelaspe of the SCX10 2 kit being built.

In the summer of 2017 I self taught myself how to tig weld.The first welding project was to make a front bumper. I used 1/8 rod to make a tube bumper and then used a steel bar to connect the frame and welded the bumper to the chassis.

The next steel addition was a rear bumper and sliders. I used 1/8 rod to make both bumpers and sliders. The sliders are welded to the chassis and the rear bumper bolts to the chassis with 4 bolts. I also got Vanquish Products shock hoops.

This is where the build takes a turn, I decided to strip the truck and make a Cherokee based truggy. (Cherokee+Truggy=Chuggy) I started dissembling parts i didnt want to use and cut the bumpers and sliders off.

Great work son. That fact that you've kept all this footage in reserve for two years is impressive. Congratulations on starting your own YouTube channel. I'm excited to see the creations you'll be building. The Chuggy deserves an epic build thread.

Very nice work! I really liked seeing the 34 ford in that video! This is her latest condition, still a great Truggy!
