Default 1/6 scale Baja Trophy Truck Tuber

heres my latest project. gonna be a baja truck looking crawler. full tube chassis and lots of little details.
heres the design i drew up, front design is still up in the air.


using a new bright 1/6 avalanche body. since these pics ive already started hacking on it. and still have alot to go.




got the cab sides and bumpers done. took about 10' of tubing...


like a glove


got 90% of the bed done last night. i wish i had made it about 1/2" taller and a 1/2" longer. but it'll do. the washers are the rear shock and upper link mounts.

You should use TXT axles with wideners this time instead of those clod axles.

The tube work is amazing though.

Thanks, I ran to walmart today to scout out some of these trucks. I'm more interested in making a monster truck trail rig instead of a crawler. My walmart only had an H3 and a dodge ram. The ram was pretty sweet actually.

What version of AutoCAD is that? Any of it drawn in 3d?

ive got the new bright 1/6 jeep, avalanche, and 2 H2's
its AutoCad 14. i have some other crawlers in 3d, but not this one. its just a pattern for the tubing to insure squareness and accuracy.

Hey "STANG KILLA SS" I got one question for you. Are you going to put front independent suspension on it, and will it be 2WD. Also it looks like its really coming along there.

no as stated in the first post this will be a crawler ( solid axles, 4WD) that LOOKS like a baja truck. i may however leave the front motor out and run like a 13T mod motor in the rear for some fun in the dirt/sand . next build ill probly make a true baja IFS 2WD truck. im still trying to track down one of the 1/6 tundra bodies.

Just a heads up but you will want aluminum or solid delrin wheels to avoid burning through hexs like a fat kid at an ice cream bar. The finished weight will be be kinda high and 2.2 wheels strip quickly on rigs this big.

Other than that very cool and get building. The All-Ts wil give it a good baja stance

good point.
one thing i cant decide is on the interior.
should i leave the stock tan interior and work cage around it. al la prerunner
or do sheetmetal interior/dash/door panels, race seats etc. al la race truck

im kinda partial to the race interior.....

If the body is not going to change much keep the stock interior. If you were going to be hacking on the body to make it look like anything other than what just left the dealer then a sheet metal interior would be in order IMO

no its gonna get hacked. front and rear bumpers gone, tailgate gone, bed floor gone(already), wheelwheels enlarged, etc. and a monotone white paintjob with race/sponsor decals.
