Hey guys...your enthusiasm is much appreciated. I am planning to pic this up again soon...work and winter has really put a damper on my motivation.

I was just looking at some things for this a couple days ago. Might be narrowing the tires a little, depending how they'll fit the clod rims.

Was also thinking about a Meyers 1/2 cab instead of a full soft top. What do y'all think?

Meyers half cab would be cool.

Wow! I can't believe how long it's been for this one. Trying to get some activity going again.

This past weekend, I replaced the D60's with a new set of D44's I got from RC Recycler for a reasonable price. They already had the link mounts ground off for leaf springs. Probably why they were cheap.

So, I had to fab all new spring perch's, shock mounts and U-bolt plates for the smaller Yota U-bolts. I also added an extra leaf to each rear spring. The originals that I made were great for flex, but lacked the support that is needed to keep it up where it belongs. Looks much more scale now and the new axles should be beefy enough for this hefty Jeep chassis. I used the same rear wideners on the rear axle and widened the front using 1 of the rear tubes for the SCX width and a Wraith width front CVD shaft shortened by 28mm and reground to fit the diff.

Here's result of my efforts

In your first post, you were looking for a set of stock Jeep wheels. G-made has stockers for their Sawback, might fit your bill, SR03 or VR01

Thanks for that input, but I was looking for the 1/6 wheels, which I have found.

The Gmade rims are nice but they're 1.9's and 6-lug. The VR01 are a perfect fit for my RC4WD Land Cruiser.

Progress so far. Doesn't look like much but it took me 2 days to get the grill to this point.
