Welcome Gator-J! That's a unique take on the Bronco it should work well. I hope you consider starting a build thread in the TRX4 section to document it.

Next up is an interior of some sort, thinking either dinky or PL classic.

I'm curious if the Axial XJ molded plastic grille could be fitted in the proline Comanche body.

lol Thanks Man
well, today I added Metal stickers and the panel gaps also switched out the tires to 1.9 two face, i wanted the rig to sit a lil low without the tires rubbing into the body. Also switched the winch hook to this neat looking one from Integy, now im waiting on the snow fender vents thats are angled down instead of the mesh ones and also waiting on a 3mm Rope that i bought from Etsy to install on the front like the Defender from Spectre.

I saw a similar clip on Instagram for a tf2 overdrive and thought itíd be an interesting visual for the trx4.

This is with overdrive up front and underdrive in the rear

Some more paint changes...sanded off the camo and did a black grill, rust hood, green doors, and yellow back. Changed the sticker graphics. Think im done with it for the most part...like the way it turned out. May add some headlights down the road.

So I got a 10.2 Cherokee kit today and while itís close the Cherokee grill is about .25 inches longer than the Comanche body. Could probably get it to work if you shave the sides down as thereís a bit of plastic there to work with. I havenít opened that parts bag yet but when I do Iíll throw up some pictures in case anyone is wondering.

Parts tree is $20 at tower but it also comes with mirrors and door handles.

Something about that Jeep makes me think post-apocalyptic thoughts...

Got the Wraith Spawn interior trimmed, diced up and fitted for the Sporto Commanche. Painted the floor and panels silver, seats black, driver white. It pops pretty good in there with the silver. I meant to take a shot before I got it installed, but I got ahead of myself. Anyway, turned out pretty well and I'd say this set up is officially ready to roll.
