This has happened on both of the print attempts for the cross bars on the roof rack and I'm at a bit of a loss.
no worries on the bumper, but it would give you options. lol

as for the crossbars.. without seeing how they were oriented on the build plate, it is kind of hard to say, but my guess is you need support under them..

orientation is everything with 3d printing.. if there is empty space under something, you probably want to use supports if you cant reorient it.

e-mail rc4wd and see if this will fit your wheel

Unfortunately those won't fit. The bolt spacing is too wide and the 'ring' on the front is too big.

These 10-oval steelies seem to have a different bolt pattern and inner ring diameter than any other RC4WD wheel. That figures.

Well, I think I give up on the steelies. I'll use them for another project later or sell them, one or the other. Instead, I picked up a set of these.



Which, ironically, is kind of the same look I was aiming for with the steelies. These also have a positive offset but it's not as dramatic as the steelies, plus they're hexes by default so that gives me some room to play.

They're 1.9s so that's a little bit bigger than scale but it should still look great. I'll be using 1.7" Patagonias so that should look good and have a stock-ish tire diameter.

Also got my Tamiya driver, and it fits great in the lexan interior. I'll have to cut the driver's side floor out a bit but that's no problem at all.

Lastly, made some changes to the front suspension.



Because yellow shocks are sexy. They're 70mm but I got the same ride height I did with the 60s by moving them up to the top holes on the Boom Racing shock towers. I used regular RC4WD 60mm scale shocks on the back and took the springs out to let the leaf springs do all the work back there. I'm also still looking for a front spring that I'm happy with. Everything I try is too hard or too soft. I need a bit harder than the Tamiyas I had since the Titan 21-turn 550 is a heavy little mill.

Moving right along.

I like the looks of the front suspension...

The pic of the 1.7 rims reminded me of the railroad trucks designed to run on train tracks. Very narrow width offset.

I was going to suggest these narrow rims from Boom Racing.



They have a hex designed hub and the 1.7 tires could be stretched on for a better fit. But...I really like those actual Jeep rims you found...seriously...those are sweet.

Not a lot to report while I wait for new rolling stock.

I did get the finalized ride height I was looking for, I think. I'll have to see when the new tires come in. Right now it's sitting on some old Tamiya BFGs. The 1.7 Patagonias are a little bit smaller but not a lot. Once I get the flares on there it should fill in the fender gap a bit.



To get the ride height where I wanted it I had to move the axle above the leaf springs in the rear. I also used the longer shocks back there because in doing so I had to turn the axle up-side down. The 70mm shocks fit perfectly at that new position.

Also got the interior trimmed and in place and mounted in the body. I'm going to paint the underside of the interior black, it's currently white. Then I'm going to remove the overspray film and shoot the whole thing with a matte clear. Also, the Tamiya Bruiser driver fits like a glove. Seriously, fits in the driver's seat like it was made for it. I had to cut the floor out but other than that, the contour of the seat fits the mold of the driver's body perfectly..



More coming soon™ as parts keep coming in.
