Default John Deere Scheme Bruiser Clone with Mods

New here. Just wanted to share what I did with this truck to improve looks and performance. I had this idea:

Mods:
Paint
2.2 A/T Tires
RC4WD 45t motor
Front winch bumper
Rear tow bumper
Electric winch
Marlin Crawler roll bar
LED light bar
Gas can
Fire extinguisher
RC4WD Scale shock boots
Driver
Rear window with louver
Antenna
Light kit
New steering servo, arm and ball joints (a lot less slop)
Tow chains (came with my outdoor grill)
Beadlock rings. I used linoleum nails for the rivets. Attached to stock rims for now. Eventually would like to get nicer wheels but this rig doesn't use the 12mm set-up.

Thanks for checking it out, Brian.

Thanks Mark.

Beadlocks aren't really beadlocks though. Looks a little funky. Anyone have any experience using 12mm mount wheels on one of these? I've seen adapters but it looks like they cause a lot wider stance. Thanks.

You could also try these? I like to think Paul drew inspiration from my hubs?lol. Was emailing quite a bit at the time while installing some rcchannel parts on my Bruiser build. Who knows?... Anyway, great idea lol.http://www.rcchannel.com.tw/product_info.uphp?cPath=25&products_id=384

Nice Mounty Walter!

Thanks Mark, only thing is that you are limited to their 2.2 aluminum wheels only. Plus I couldnít even find them on their website. I have some in mind right now. Iíll post a picture when Iíve installed them.

No problem... BTW I think in the description when it refers to being for 2.2's -It actually means "their" 2.2's as opposed to "their" 1.9's. Rc Channel 1.9's are mounted with 5 holes, while their 2.2 size wheel is 6 hole mounted. I'm 99% sure, to use 1:1 terminology, that the "centers" (radius of hole pattern as in "from center") don't change. In fact are the same as rc4wd 1.9' wheels et al... However it sounds like it may be a moot point as you are going a different route anyway.. looking forward to your updates, Mark.

Too bad Tamiya didnít get the memo about the 12 mm idea. Itís all good though, part of the fun trying to figure it out.

By the way Mark, I did look through your Build thread with the quad shocks and the steering stabilizer and all that good stuff. I would poke my eyes with toothpicks before attempting any of that stuff, LOL

I got a set of these machined wheels, 2.2 x 1.5 wide. They came with 4 14mm long offsets with a 12mm hex on each end. I was able to modify these and use them as adapters. They have a set screw on one end so all I did was cut the other hex off and lock it onto the shaft. As luck would have it, they fit perfectly on the shaft. Now I can use any wheel with a 12mm hex.

Has any body found any wheel adapters for these trucks that don’t make them to wide?
