Bigski, I still have the commando. the ramcharger is a 1.55 leafsprung truck I've been slowly working on.

Bob, I'm guessing it will weight around 25lbs.

Some more pics! My buddy is on a roll and he's got the brazing thing figured out as you can see. 8)

I was hoping you where going to hiline the fenders.

Is that Kane's ?
What is high siding the fenders? Is that what is going on in the back?

Looks like the builder had some tough times with the fish mouths on some of the angles. I think if he filled gaps when it's all done with some Bondo that should work to blend the joints a little better before paint. Personally I'm a perfectionist and this what I would do to make it look good.

Brian. Have you talked to the builder about what you want done with bottom rear of the tube work? I wonder if having a bottom tube to mirror the top long tube in the back would allow for better mounting of the pecan body panels.

Yeah, thats Kane in his GPW. The hiline fenders he made are just the stock front fenders that he raised a few inches. If you look closely he actually had to cut into the hood to do the hiline.

I'll have to talk to my buddy about the fishmouth bondo question. I guess as long as its strong enough a little bondo for aesthietics wouldnt hurt. Also, a lower back tube to support the bottom of the tailgate is probably a good idea... I'll let him know.






...this is so F'n silly. :ror:

There's an article in the current issue of Jeep magazine that shows a Willys prototype that had those same kind of mods to allow it to run 36" tall tires.

Kane's new toy looks very similar to the prototype in the pics.

Can I offer a different suggestion to filling in any gaps on the brazed joints? I did this to the cage in the orange Jerp. I had a few joints that were, lets say, aesthetically challenged. :oops: I discovered that the flame from a Map gas cylinder and some regular plumbers solder would fill in the gaps without effecting the joints that I had acetylene/ oxy brazed. A bit of emery paper and elbow grease made for a nice, clean looking joint.

mjderstine 06-16-2014 11:26 PM

That is a pretty sweet trick. If I ever try a jeep like this ill have to give that a shot

youngblood 06-17-2014 06:18 AM

Re: 1:4 cj3a
 
Excellent suggestion on filling the gaps Walt, thank you. I'll be trying that for sure or maybe I'll just let Mysterion know about it and see what he thinks.

Talked to Mysterion, he thinks that is a pretty sweet trick.

Burnout 1/4 Scale Axle

Re: 1:4 cj3a
 
When that brushless system eats the diffs you should look at the rc4wd 1/5 scale axles. there very scale and would do this build justice.
The Ultimate Scale Yota 1/5 Axle Front (Black)
I know there not cheap but looking at this build it is something that you should consider.

Re: 1:4 cj3a
 
I think the axles on it now would be much stronger then the yota's. Glad to see this build is still alive!
