Been gone for a while but gonna update you guys now.



Cut the rear door handles out.

And filled them in.


B-Pillars fixed also.




Big frame


Ride height will be alot lower then this, didnt have anything better to mock it up. Also thinkin about removing the bottom drop part of the chassis or atleast moving it up some...
Will have slightly bigger tires as well, just not here yet.


New Rubber, these look pretty sweet. Scale out to a 30" tire.
And again, this is not the correct ride height.



Cab and bed mounted, also cut the drop section off the frame.
Ride height might be just a smidge lower then this, not sure till i start mockin the axles up.




This just screams mean :-P

Tonights progress, ive got all the parts to finish her except for my custom beadlocks.
Managed to get the wheely king tranny mounted as a t-case, and i molested my emaxx for all 4 axle shafts to make these driveshafts, there only 8.5" long each one

Those mounting points sticking down will be cut off later.

Thank you sir, ive got too many builds going at once to be honest, i just havent posted them all. The micros are finished so i can check them off, but the micro course is still on the to do list.

Actually i do have another micro build to post but its just a body, look for that one ill get it posted here before i hit the bed.

Ive got 7-8 different builds all going on right now, not to mention the custom micro build ive got lined up if this kid ever gets the money.



Back to the big Dodge, should have time to get the 3 speed mounted tomorrow night. will update as progress is made.

Nice big dodge!I'm a ford guy and have the f-150 lightening sitting here right now. Same as yours 16" wheelbase. Gathering up parts now. Was thinking of running a emaxx trans with 2 45t motors in it. Chassis will be getting made hopefully tomorrow.
I'll make a thread for it too so come back next week and give me some pointers lol. I'm gonna use wk axles with wideners to get the right width.

Just a big New Bright.

Ill have updates on this sometime this coming week i hope.
My deal on custom beadlocks feel through so i ordered some 2.8 imex wheels to cut apart and glue back together to get the right offset.
Also ordered a waterproof HH BR-XL for her so she wont lack any power

Oh, dont remember if i mentioned it previously but i had a Kershaw crawler motor in it and it was like a snail even in 3rd, so now ive got a rc4wd 35t in it and it seems like it will do the job just great on 3s power.

Looking good. I love the idea of the quad cab. I built up a Newbright 1/6 Dodge body a few years ago, wanted to make it like my 1:1 '05 Dodge Power Wagon, but my real one was a quad, didn't have enough skills to make the quad. I was able to seperate the body and cab to make it look more scale. I still have another body and want to do another with bigger tires and better chassis or buy a chassis that I can use.

Thanks guys, jmbones ive seen your build, really nice

UPS is suppose to have my 2.8 Imex wheels to me today since i didnt get my custom 2.8 beadlocks as planned. Long story not gonna go there.

So look for an update tonight, gonna start cuttin the wheels to correct the offset.
Ordered a Holmes Hobbies BR-XL a few days ago so hopefully it will be on its way soon then i can start running this thing.
