I found the easiest solution to which orlandoo to get was to get all 3 haha.
Personally with running them all stock my favorite is the Pajero. The jeep does have the best crawling ability out of the box, Pajero 2nd and F150 3rd. However there are always some situations where the slightly longer wheelbase of the pajero or F150 will be an advantage. That's why I'd say the pajero is a good start. Its a happy in between wheelbase with similar capabilities of the Jeep.

I just ordered a second pajero in order to draw some parts off of. I think it will be put towards some custom build after seeing the 6x6. Just not sure what yet.

haha cant agree more.. all 3 is a must lol

No kidding, I'm really impressed with the Dasmikro Sound unit, it took a bit to get setup, but now I know what I'm doing it's easy, and after finding the right sound I couldn't be happier.... and that's not the best part... it's now got a horn!!

Those rigs are awesome! I've been debating between a sumo, rocksta, WPL 1/18, or these little guys. I made it as far as putting a rocksta with all the upgrades in my cart, but i think you changed my mind!

I like that the jeep has a centered gearbox, and smaller diffs. I think I'm going to pick up 1 or 2, and then find a cool military model to convert. After seeing your 18 wheeler, I think I'll move forward with my 8wd, 4ws HEMTT idea! Thank you, but my wife most likely won't!

Have any tips to add, since you have those things down pat?

thanks buddy...

my biggest tip.... there is a limit on how close the axles can be together and still use a dual unijoint slider shaft..... Due to this alot of the 1/35 military kits might not be suitable for 8x8 builds...

to give u an idea the 18 wheeler is right on the limit... the rear drive wheels can not be any closer, its already using a short shaft and i found any shorter and it pops out when the suspension is maxed out

Today's fun, I picked up some factory seconds from an Australian Diecast car company (OZLegends) and couldn't resist the chance to have a play

What do you think of the pajero so far? I seem to think its my favorite of the 3 stock ones you can buy.
Also curious what you used for the spare tire cover, almost looks like a small black balloon stretched over it. Or a piece of a nitrile glove?

I really like the Pajero, out of the box the suspension seems to work better than the jeep and the drive line angles are alot nicer....... BUT........ due to the longer wheelbase and the way the body overhangs past the rear wheels its not as capable as the jeep, im finding the Pajero and ford can't go places my jeep can.

but....on the flip side my modified Silver ford can go places the other 3 cant... sooo IDK its tough to say what ones the best.... in a way i the Jeep is the worst out of the box but with mods its the best
