Default looking to build first large scale

Well I have the body..(Black Hummer H2 New Bright)

Just have no idea what to do for axles...once I have those I can build...

I'll more then likely be making my own chassis...and I can get shocks and make my own links...

so what do you guys recommend for axles? I'll probably be using a REVO or Summit Tranny

I've built a 1/10 scaler...(Silverado SS) but for large scale stuff I have no idea what to look for in axles lol

I'm also on a budget...$50-$75 for a pair..dunno if that's possible though?

Any help would be great. thanks

I would use wheely king or axial. For that price you should be able to get either of those. I ran axial a les under my willys. But alot of guys use the WK also. I think the axials look more scale unless you are going for the hardcore wide full-size axle look.

really? hm..never wouldda thought of that...I figured they would've looked tiny and been too short....i'll look into it..I got a spare set of axle housings...see how they look underneath it...

The wk axles look more realistic than the axials but I went with axials because my lhs stocks replacement parts and the aftermarket is bigger IMO.
