What type stance do you want with it, stock, lifted, monster?

This one uses HPI wheely king axles

This one uses Tamiya TLT-1 axles with wideners.

Axial ax10 axles are a little narrower than wheely king ones and a little wider than tlt-1 ones(without wideners).

RC4wd also makes good axles.

I've seen the ax10's transmission used in a 1/6 jeep successfully, but you'd want the upgrade steel output shafts(the stock aluminum ones would probably snap off immediately under the load of a 1/6 truck).

BTW, welcome to the cars and trucks section.

Thanks for the information I will look through this latter, I want to build the vehicle stock with standard size tyres, WWII style is more my inspiration as opposed to anything else

Nice find. Both rccrawler.com and scale4x4rc.com are good places to find information on scale trucks.
