With that body cut like that.. you're going to be super light with a lot of body clearance!

That Jimny Enduro looks promising "thumbsup"

After a lot of messuring, cutting, fitting, cutting again, thats how it looks now. I am really happy how it turned out.
There is still a lot to do, but I like how the cage sits and that I could use the whole bed.

Body reinforcement! Added Gorilla tape and rounded the slots where the sliders run through the sides of the body. Put tape under each body mount hole to tighten it up when the clips are attached. Also added bolts to secure bed to cab.

Doing this stiffened the body up and does not rattle like it did. Itís solid now!

Threw on proline xj body Got my ripsaws unmounted from the glue on wheels an onto the Sendero beadlocks. Much better cog now, also did rear shock/link mount mod and rear upper link risers. Besides 11.xx% od that's all I've done to it, and wow it goes almost anywhere!

Well can’t leave well enough alone. Ordered some rear links from associated and shortened the wheel base to 11.8. After I measured it is actually 11.5. Install the bed on the cab and fits really good. The Tamiya hilux clone body and bed works out ok. I didn’t need to cut the bed to fit the shock towers. Lays perfectly flat I also have the front and rear lights in it. Still using the trailwalker bumper. I’m thinking I like this better than the cage. Be safe everybody

Great looking truck!"thumbsup"

Do you have a build thread or pics of how the body mounts look?

Thanks. I do not have a build thread. But the body mounts are from shrink rc. Iíve attached the link and posted a picture for you. Iím using the hilux body which works out good because the bed isnít deep like the RC4WD bed which you have to cut to accommodate the shock towers. Hope this helps.

You should start a build thread Dave. You've got enough content now!

Thanks for the info!"thumbsup"

The Shrink RC mounts look nice. I'm glad to see that you are still able to use the larger battery tray.

Yeah I have too many full size batteries and did t want to start buying shorty packs. Anything over 5200 mah wonít fit with the interior. I painted up the factory trailwalker wheels and put the little tires on for a bit. Looks ok. Attachment 388110

So because we can’t really go anywhere and practicing social distancing so this virus will hopefully go away I decided to work on the element/ Yota again. So I fount a place to mount the waterproof receiver box so I can put the receiver and my light controller in just in case. I don’t normally run in water but a little piece of mind.i did have to trim the bed. I need some gas cans now. ��

So I picked up an axial blazer bumper , trimmed the bed and than I needed to drill some new holes to suck the bumper in some. Than I pained up my shell from the bruiser and mounted it. Attachment 388489
