That's pretty cool but i think you need some narower axles or some bigger tires. Looks kinda funny with the tiny wheels all hung out there.

Great job on the tube work and body too

Great tube work! I would definately fab up some tube half door's. Don't want any blood spilled on the trail!!!

Keep it up!

Yes they are X-Factors axles. I modified some 14 -23mm adapters to run the skinny wheels everyone loves so much. LOL The WB is 26" and width is 18". Ill Post some pix of the drivetrain tomorrow. Thanks for the comments.

Thanks. I bought the truck from amazon.com for like 30 bucks. It was actually a cheesie A$$ r/c truck. I was gonna build the 1/5 ranger and found this instead. Thanks for the comment.

What is the tire and wheel combo? I think that might be a good combo for a dakar Hummer project that I am working on.

Im not sure what the truck was called. Sorry i bought it a few years ago. The tires are modified nylints on 23mm cheyenne's. I actually like the look but theres not alot of grip. Im looking for some wider softer tires, but havent seen any I like yet. Lol about the urban figure. I threw in a new gi joe guy tonight and my daughters barbie. Took some pics ill post soon. Thanks for all the looks and comments.
