Default Gonna build a scale rig.

Decided I'm gonna try my hand at builing a scale rig. Got a New Bright Avalanche off ebay for a pretty decent price. Now the 64 dollar question is does anybody know width and wheelbase of the body? Trying to decide druvtrain and axles. Tlt axles or Wheely King axles? Thanks for any help.

It's listed as 1/6 scale. I know several people here have beuilt scale rigs with the same body so I was looking for info. And yes I am in The Lone Star state. Is there any where else to live?

Obijuan I'll definitely keep that in mind.... Haven't quite decided how I'm going to power it yet.... I've got a Tracer chassis kit coming but I doubt it will fit this... who knows? I'm also thinking about a sick twisted version made from a Wheely King with the transmission laid sideways.....Ahh the wonderful madness of it all!!!!!
S-dog... I saw that build earlier....I'm thinking as stock as possible body with some Bushwacker style fender flares, rock rails and a nice big chrome roll bar with big lights... Lemme see... if I give blood every few days at ten bucks a pop..... Looks like it's time for Ebay.

OK I'm tring to get this started.... Gonna use WK axles. I'm probably going to use stock suspension set up with stretched chassis mounting points (does that make sense?) Wheels an tires are still up in the air. The 2.2 look a little small but Maxx size is too tall and will end up being to big. I'm looking at Moabs or Geolanders....
