Default To use or not to use??

I just had a minty-fresh, unhacked Nylint body drop into my lap for absolutely FREE



I'm thinkin' about a full-tilt competition Jeep build with this one maybe. But I'm wonderin' about that interior, it's obviously not full depth (my friend who is bringing it back from Cali for me sent me this pic, I don't actually have it yet)

Anybody else ever use one of these??

I used mine on a Stampede. I didn't build a crawler but it was more like a 60's jeep beach buggy. Had a set of rock lizards and used the interior. Hank PS, I used the 1/14 body on the Stampede.

Yep, any "tube" on it now would definitely be replaced with steel brake line...

Those are a couple good examples - thanks!

I don't have it yet, it's reportedly "like new". My friend in Cali also had a 1:6th Dodge Ram, but it was "pretty scratched up and cracked in a few spots" so I passed on it.

Thursday I should have it, we'll see what sort of inspiration happens then...

Daaaaamn. Set it next to Ol' Blue, and it looks even bigger.

If you set a Willys MB and a new Wrangler side-by-side, would there be this much size difference?



Wraith axles might be a good fit for the width. And there's definitely plenty of room for an R3 under the hood...
