You're going to love your new chassis, have fun building it. Post up some pics when you're done .

Any update on replacement body panels? I know it's a long-shot but I just had to ask.

I've seen the 70's bronco
and the large 70's chevy truck
I'm going to try a new bright JK Jeep hardbody front
I've seen a few hard body front ends that look great

most guys run the AX10 axles
you can run 1.9 or 2.2 rims and tires
you can also stretch the Wheel Base if you like
for better approach on the really steep stuff.
I've seen a wide variety of set-ups
The Wreckluse a great platform to start with

The great customer support meant a lot when i called. Very few companies take the time to actually help customers like you guys do. I look forward to placing my order next week as well as a few others for my build. Thanks.

....not a bad deal
I'll check to see the cost to run a hundred or so.
Is anyone interested in a carbon-fiber Wreckluse hood?
Did you ever have a chance to check into making replacement (flat) body panels?

I would for sure buy a carbonfiber hood, and I would be interested in those cad drawings to make me some panels

Would the Axial SCX10 Honcho axles and tranny work okay with the wrekluse chassis?

Did you ever make that CAD file for the panels?
If not, i'm going to try and use my plastic ones as a guide. :(

That's what I ended up doing. I went with aluminum sheet material for the lower belly plates and repainted the outside of the original hood and clearcoated it. Stock replacements would have been nice though .
