I thought it fitting as Willy looks pretty cocky siting in that 4 wheel drive jeep.
And it should also tie in our chicken ranch theme.
Double win win...ahahaha
Best I could do.
Seriously should look the part at 10 to 20 feet trailing.

Ought to be a challenge with very little ground clearance

Sorry for the awefull Vid..where's "HQ" or "dougJ" when I need them ahahaha

Wow Ron! Your creations are so amazing. The action video is awesome. Love the stance while it's moving...looks just like the real thing.

I kinda like the look with the big tires, but my heart lays with the stock look.

Thank you for the props Willez.
very appreciated.

I was just goofing off after going back out and driving it some more.
If I take it out with friends to the other trails.
I can easily flip axles back over and stuff big tires back on it to keep up.


But It will pretty much stay with the tinny tires as I love the challenge of drive and looks.

Funny to me.
I started out with a venom creeper, then that lead to Lozi night crawlers and some cheapy maxstonesÖ Into my first Axail wraiths..to Axail honcho's..
RC4WD Trail stomper to TF2....ahahaa
The more I drive tinny trucks..The more I want them to look and preform like the real deal.

Hats off to those guys that build a rig that can go vertical up a shear rock cliff or articulate over 6 inches on rough terrain.

I like my realistic have to pick a line to get over a pebble driving ahahaha.
Trucks and parts seem to last a long longer too...

Great job!

Still plenty to finish up on this truck.
Few more exterior details, inner fender aprons need painted and applied.
Lights
And a chicken coupe in bed or something..ahahaaa
Hard parts are mostly done and My three grandsons had a ball following it last might on my back yard trail...They were only 2wd ..ha.

I'll keep plugging away at the littles, and then try and do a bit better vid of it.
