Default Fj40 or fj40 with a bed

Hey fellas.
I finally have enough extra parts to start a scratch build. I can't remember what the links came from, I think dead bolt rear links up front and gladiator front links out back. I might have it backwards.
Anyway the wheel base came out to 90mm. I have an sc28 body that fits the wheelbase pretty good, but I'm not a fan of the fender flares. I ordered some styrene sheets for a different project, but I think this is a good as any time to try my hand at building something.
Basically, my question is, where do you guys find pictures to scale down? I tried searching, but I'm not really sure what to search for.
I'm thinking, either an fj40 or a fj45 with a bed, made to fit. I'm also open to other ideas. Thanks!

If your hand making a body which I gather is your intent, just Google whatever vehicle you're looking for for images.

Next look up the vehicle itself and get it's wheelbase.

You cannot scale to 1/24 because these so labeled 1/24 are far from it. Using an image take your 90mm wheel base and scale image up or down till the center of the wheels in the picture is 90mm then print it.

Some of us don't go through all that anymore. Cad files scaled correctly and 3D printed.
