I think it looks perfect, if you wanted to change something add some hub caps and make the rear wheel wells like the original bronco before people cut them!I personaly love the look of an ultra stock rig!!

Looks really nice! X2 on the wideners. Never had an mrc shocks but you can always check the o rings. With rc4wd shocks, I always take out 1 o ring.

Anyone have recommendations for LED's?


Very nice Bronco. Can you tell what hexes you ordered and where from? thanks

Thanks.
I haven't ordered the new hexes yet. They aren't really high priority. I was going to get these from TCS: http://www.tcscrawlers.com/Hot-Racin...8-p-17416.html

Default Update

Well, I haven't done much to change the Bronco lately, but I have a mini-update and some action shots from today.

First, I got some LED headlights and tail lights. Nice and bright!


Here are some pics from my recent run at Marina Del Rey in Southern California.

















Plenty of flex...





Waaaaaaaaaaaay too much flex!











Glamour shot...





I also saw an Army helicopter.




My next step is to add a front bumper.
Thanks for looking.

Looks good, I thing you should atleast use Losi wide hexes which would widen you trackwidth my a couple mm's. Are you planning to add some inner fenderwells?

I love the body! Your paint scheme is spot on! The action shots really show that you need a wider track to set this one over the top!

I'm going to get some wide hexes but I'm just trying to figure out my priorities with this build. I'll probably add some wheelwells once I convert the suspension setup to a more stock setup (2 radius arms plus a panhard bar in front, leafs in the rear).

Thanks! The wider hexes are on my to-do list.

Looks great the way it is. It doesn't need wideners but it won't hurt. If anything, narrower tires but I haven't seen anything that looks as good that is narrower. How about some wheel wells?

For the shocks try draining them and massaging some Team Associated Green Slime into the O-rings then fill with Silicone shock fluid. That's what was recommended to me and worked great.

Bronco looks great too.

Thanks for the kind words.

@John - Thanks. I was looking at the shocks and they don't have any o-rings as far as I can tell. They just have rubber things that kinda look like dampers or something. But I'll be replacing them soon anyway, so it isn't that big of a deal.

The next few things on my to-do list for this are a front bumper, then wideners, and then wheel wells (and probably a bit of a floor pan while I'm at it)
The wideners that I'm looking at would give me roughly 3mm more on each corner.

Once I've done that, I'll start converting the suspension to a stock setup instead of the 3-link with coilovers that I have now.
