Default Ultimate SuperDuty / Jeep CJ

So I've been working on this project for a little while now. It's a mountianeer frame, stampede tranny, TLT axles, and misc. other little bits. The end result should look something like this



So far it looks like this

Yea, and it will be different than most of what's out there. The trimming of your body is really porportionate to the wheels. Nice job! Keep the pics coming

Do you plan on going the same route as Badger....leafs and tlt shocks or coils and seperate shocks. Either way its going to look good.

That was kind of mind thought. The only difference in a single wheel F250 or F350 is the spring rate. Everything else in them are the same. :?

No I'd like one but don't want to pay for them I've never seen one for under $30 like the lexan one. Plus the weight is high.

The plan is bruiser/mounty frame, pede trans. & shafts, TLT axles & shocks, Rooster ESC, narrowed 2K's, and a mag mayhem. I'm having issues on where to mount the susp. links on the frame. Its a huge pain in the ass.

Looks like a good combo of wheels/tires/body so far. I take it this will be more of a scale truck and not a comp. truck or no? Get some pictures of your real deal ;)
