A little before and after. I had to go with the maisto because I had a hard time finding TJ bodies. I like the diecast I think it looks great, but paint does chip off of it pretty easy if youíre too rough with the truck. I loved the size of the little 1/18 size crawlers and not knowing much about them I thought the Gellande ii seemed like a pretty well reviewed crawler so I went with it. Huge shoutout to this post
My 1:18 RC4WD Gelande 11 with Maisto Jeep Wrangler body.
For just showing me that it was possible to put the two together. I hope I did enough differently with it that everyone doesnít consider me a copycat or a ripoff. I think I will also take his idea of putting a Tonneau cover over the back to cover up the battery

I really like how with the opening hood/ tailgate (after I get tonneau cover on) I can get to the power switch and the battery charging cord without tearing the entire truck apart.Name:  D42311E9-64F9-4A07-8370-C5DF70ACAC8C.jpg

One thing I don’t really like is the tailgate doesn’t snap shut tight and stay closed it’s being held shut with a little dab of automotive butyl at the moment. Dies anyone know of like a little clasp or magnet latch that would hold the tailgate shut I could mount back there?

This is your first crawler? That looks awesome, those bodies look great and fit the chassis great. And a nice, clean 1:1.
