Based on a stretched Revo 3.3 chassis that is stretched to 17.75'' wheelbase. Brushless power running on 4s using SMC 9400Mah 2s lipos. The 2 speed Summit transmission has the LEM dog carrier installed to take out the slop that the weak stock one has. 40 series tires are cut to fit the 1/5 scale beadlock rims. It uses led lights for night time use that run on both 2s and 3s power. HV power to the 475 oz hitec servo and the alturn micro for the transmission are fed througha 10 amp Castle bec.

This 1/6 Jeep truck has a lot of work done to it to get this look. The bed was chopped, the windows cut out and filled with a clear poly. The interior was made to mount to the Aluminum frame so that it would make the whole thing very stiff. the roll cage inside also is apart of the interior and has the seats mounted to it. The wheelbase is 15.5'' and uses the JCONCEPT 6'' Scorpios the custom axles are made of RC4WD bully parts. It uses Integy 55 turn motors and runs on SMC lipo that is 2s 5800Mah. It uses a custom winch bumper and the rear swing away tire carrier is a one piece unit that also serves to mount the body to the chassis. The roll cage runs through firewall and is used to mount the front shocks and is also is used to mount the front of the body to the chassis. Hood and door also have been cut and are hinged and latches made to hold in place. Steering wheel servo is burnt out.

This is my latest build. It is a 21 st Century Jeep that uses a 13.5'' wheelbase. It has a built axles with HD axles in the rear and HD CVD's up front. The Wraith axles are just the right size for this build. It uses 2.2 Rok Lox and the metal work on this one is all aluminum just like the other 2 above. Nothing special here just light weight materials used when possible. SMC lipo is a 4800Mah. Care was taken in the power train so that the motor could be covered to look scale as possible. water proof servo is a brushless HV unit by Alturn it uses a Castle BEC also to move the 480oz servo.
It has a rag top that also can be used with this build.
