I want some snow to play in. Though is nice to be able to take the T-tops off with the 70 degree weather we have had the last 3 days here.

Hey Bud.., What you are looking at is The Tamiya Jeep Wrangler ( Kit 58141). All 3 of mine have custom touches done to them.... Tamiya discontinued these years ago, and now they are pretty rare, and are worth ALOT of money..!!
You can find them on E-bay, but be prepared to pay in the upwards of $250-$400 for one RTR..!!!! I LOVE them too though..!!!!

However, Tamiya used this same chassis as basic platform for a few trucks.. ( including the Tamiya Isuzu MU, the Tamiya CR-V, the Pajero Metal top wide, the Pajero XB, and the VW Touareg..!!!!) The actual chassis is fairly easy to find.. ( In fact i have a few extras myself..) and fairly inexpensive to build.., Its the JEEP body thats the tough part..!!!!

LOL..!!! hhmmm.... tempting..!!! LOL..!!

These Jeeps are 1/10th scale, and thier dimentions are as follows....

Wheelbase is 9 1/2"
7" wide
8 1/2" tall

These are also 4WD and both *axles* can be "Locked" for superior traction..!!

** ( rear axle, and front gear differential can be locked.. :-P ) **
