    Default Pics of my SCratch built 2.2 Jeep tuber

    This is a scratch built project I have been working on for a very long time, I feel it is finally finished enough to call it done, although it will never be truly done. I already have other ideas I want to add to it, i.e. illuminated gauges, replace the 3racing winch with a RC4WD winch, and add some more interior details. It is a 3/16 steel rod, mig welded chassis, powder coated in satin chrome. It has a RC4WD R2 tranny, axial axles, and custom built internal spring shocks with red RC4WD boots. The wheels are a one off custom set I made with a friend who owned a machine shop in Long Island NY, REC warn hubs, and pro-line brake discs, and the tires are RC4WD 2.2 Mudslingers. Both the stinger and rear bumper are scratch built and removable. The interior was all built from scratch with styrene sheet and then covered with styrene diamond plate and painted. It has a full size spare, RC4WD High Lift jack, and a home made powertank, with air hose. The fuel cell I also built from styrene and fitted the sidewinder esc inside. Guess that's the bulk of it and since I put the Team driver decals on it today and figured I would post up some pics. Hope ya like it.

    Beautiful ground up build sir. Looks to be a very capable rig. I hope your interior intentions come together well, as your attention to detail on the truck is impeccable. My only complaint is the zip-tied foam padding. I say let that powder coat shine! Hope to see more in the future. Subscribed for eternity because I know as well as you, it's never finished!
