Anyone done a New Bright TJ Wrangler on a CC-01?
 
Ok, So I'm sitting here looking at the New Bright TJ Wrangler and I think it would go nicely on my CC-01. It's gonna take some sectioningof the rear floor, but, it will be WAY worth it I think. Has anyone done one of these yet? I wasn't even sure I wanted one,until my brother popped his outof a storage tote and asked If it was what I wanted... I was about ready to buy one today, glad I waited! lol

No Jeep other than a Liberty should have IFS.

4drmopar 07-30-2009 09:45 PM

I did my CC up as my full size ride, a 2005 Grand Cherokee WK. After '04, Grand's became IFS too. I think the body is from a company called Redline RC or something. Look at Toy-R-Us, that is where I got mine. Save the TJ for a Losi MRC and a diferent chassis.

Real Jeeps have two solid axles and round headlights:-P

I have one that I am working on now. I bought it thinking I would do a tuber chassis but it just fits right on the CC01.

4drmopar 07-31-2009 08:49 PM

It's not perfect, but, after teh tub trimming etc yeah it will be a nice height...besides, Tamiya did theres like that.. :)
Also, I'm gonna legnthen the rear arms by about 14" to center teh rear wheel in the wheel opening and it SHOULD look GREAT. I am just debating on running Stock Slash wheels and tires for now, they look GREAT on it! :)

I am considering keeping the big wheels on, but, might end up with a set of the white rover wheels and tires from Fleabay

Body looks good, but she needs to ride on 1.9s. Looks too cartoonish and those Slash tires are worthless on the trails, buddy has a set on his SCX10 and it was a damn joke.

lol, yeah,same decision I came to last night too while trying to fall asleep....

Cool! I wont be the only wheeling with a Grand Cherokee. Hope you get the '04, that year got a mild face lift and by far was one of the best looking Grand's.

4drmopar 08-07-2009 08:49 AM

I've had the 99 and 04 style, and yes, the 04 does have a nicer grille and a few other small feature... I think this is just a 99-03 style wthout revisions but,nothing some filler and dremel cant fix on my mini rig

Here's my previous 2 WJ's
