Awesome. The suspense of that one near vertical climb was killing me. The desert states must be awesome for crawling.

Thanks! This one will be revived here in the next couple weeks. Decided to plop the Rock Van body here since I still can’t find a jp1 in the states.

As always, plans change and new ones are made. You may have read in the scx10iii thread that Iíve since sold the 10.3 as a slider and kept the body. I decided to take a stab at mounting the JLU on the vs4-10 without body posts.

The front was a piece of cake. The mounts are separate pieces for the front, and simply screw into the chassis/bumper mount on the outside of the rail. These lined up well with the holes on the chassis already, to a point. The main hole is the only one you really need (twss) but if you wanted more than one screw holding the body mount then youíd have to tap a new hole in the mount or the rail. Itís plenty sturdy with one screw so I didnít bother.

The rear was a different story, the whole bumper mount receiver box and brace are all one big piece on the vs4-10. The axial body mounts in the rear are actually integrated into the bumper mount, unlike the front where they were separate. To use the axial mount some chopping would have been needed so I looked for alternatives.

With the interior in, it sits right on top of the shock towers so busted out some trusty shoe goo and stuck some magnets on the body post towers and underneath the interior of the JLU body. These magnets are very strong but I have no problems pulling the body off so hopefully it will last.

On a related note, I ditched the 12Ē wb and went for the 12.3Ē. Lookin forward to driving this one again.

Welp, that just put me over the edge. I’ll probably be ordering a chassis and vfd late July. Damn it man.

Glad to see the JLU body back in use! It looks great on this chassis. Should definitely perform better too!

Now Iím thinking maybe I should just pick up this body and put it on my VFD Origin instead of getting the SCX10.3!

Thank you!

Dude, it's just sick with the Blazer body!!!!! I'm going to try and use the 63 or 64, whatever it is, from Proline on a pro chassis. I've never jacked with mounting a body from scratch. This gives me hope. Looks badass!

Thanks BMow!

That ainít a bad idea at all right there. May not be too hard to find a take off body from a kit with all the bits and pieces.

Thanks! I liked the blazer a lot too, but it was a bit too bulky for me on the rocks. Beautiful body though, axial does such a good job with their lexan bodies generally.
