Default Pics of my Scratch built 2.2 Jeep tuber

This is my Jeep tuber project I have been working on for a long time. It's 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.

Very sharp looking rig.
Turned out fantastic and really kept my eye's wandering on the scale details also.
Very well thought out build, and it shows.
Where in the world did you find the small tube padding ? Brings a ton of awesome to the cage.

Thanks man, there are still more details I want to add. The roll bar pads are actually black nerf darts, they are pretty hard to find now.

Thanks for the info. I'll be keeping my eyes open for some now. They look the part and bring the magic to the cage for sure.
It's the little details....
Great Jeep, my friend. I like looking at it.
