Nice build.

I just got a New Bright 1/6 Raptor and a 1/8 New Bright single cab generic truck that site does look like a newer Dodge Ram sport with cowl induction hood. I'm convinced since it has a Dodge emblem on the tailgate and I saw a Ram just today that even had the same hood cowling.

What's the width of your body at the fender flares?

The width of my Raptor is 10.25" and the Dodge is 10". I guess the Dodge is actually considered a 1/6?

Where does the body line up compared to the wheel hexes? I'm sure we won't be using identical wheels and tires so that view would give me a better idea of how SCX10 axles would work on my builds.

My wheels and tires are extreemly wide about 2.5" and stick out about 1/8 inch maybe 3/16 ish so at my wheels im just under 10.5 inches wide my ripsaws with chanquish wheels sit flush with the body on both sides both sets of tires tuck under the body nicely if the suspention had that much traval anyway i would guess the xrmod axles would be perfict if your looking for big lift the ar60 would be a realy nice choice if i build me another one ill do the ssd read centered axle and ar60 front all the axles axial has out will work realy well for the 1/6th scale bodys in my opinion anyway

I took some pics just to get a feel of what it might look like using e10 or SCX10 axles. Once I get the current project off the desk, I'll set it up a little better to get a feel for stance.
