Default Tamiya Jeep Wrangler

Hey guys I dug out an old Tamiya Jeep Wrangler that I have had for years. Its in great shape and thought about A) selling it. Or B) hacking it up into a crawler. It's pretty rare in great shape and just wanted any input of any kind. Thanks in advance

I would choose (C) Hang on to it for dear life.

As a Jeep fan, I would love to have one of those. And hacking up a rather rare Jeep like that would just be bad news, if you ask me.

I originally bought it many years ago to and painted it to replicate a wrangler that I had and bought another jeep recently. It's in good shape and just don't have any interest in it. I actually took some pictures of it today to see if I can trade it locally for a race ready rc18b. If you would like pics I can email them and if you would like you can just check them out or post them as I am out of the loop when it comes to that.

We need pictures... definitely!

I agree with option C, keep it. That is a rare one, for sure.

I tried to upload pics numerous times on both explorer and firefox. Followed the FAQ's to the T and still no luck. Will email to above address and maybe they will have better luck if they choose to post. They are pretty poor pics taken indoors and with a flash (due to power outtage and rain) which makes it look like the lid is damaged. Thanks for the interest! Making this decision hard !

That's a classic model!

Keep in mind that if you decide to get rid of it, any discussion of that needs to stay out of the forums.

Haha , yeah its definelty a classic. It drives like a refrigarator on wheels! I'm still wondering why Tamiya went with the wheels that are on it. Pretty sure the Cherokee style wheels were never available on Wranglers, and if so were they gold like the Cherokee?

Classic content. Definitely don't chop it up, sell it to someone who will restore it.

Independent front suspension on a freaking jeep wrangler?

That is just wrong, shame on you tamiya!

Hack it up and put a ladder chassis in it and you could have a sweet scale rig.
