Here's one for Tamiya: Optional bumpers, no chrome, molded in black flexy plastic, for guys who beat their trucks hard.

Newbie here! I would love to see a crawler gearset for the "transfer case" part of the tranny, and some type of hi steer knuckles to get the tie rods above the leaf springs.

1. wheels and tires (black wheelsm, raised letters on the tires preferably swampers)

2. bigger springs with a better spring weight (so it doesnt sagg if you want a lighter spring for flex)

3. a way to raise the skid and T-case

4. PLOW

5. 2WD dissconnect

6. winch

7. rubber mirrors (*cough* looks at aftermarket guys like FOE and RC4WD *cough*)

8. scale 2" hitch with reciever and ball

9. better more direct steering setup (too many long links)

10. flux capacitor (for those of us who want to have a time traveling RC)

11. the kitchen sink

12. interior and clear glass (can easily be done with a minimal body lift)

13. spin off wheel nuts that look like center hubs

14. antenna that looks like the Fm radio antenna that connects to the reciever or something (although I plan on upgradeing to spektrum)

15. oil shocks (even though the friction shocks work I fear with any amount of susspension work they wont handle it)

anything from imex in a 1.9, mickey's or swampers would be sweet. some one allready said it but a plow would be cool to go along with the mfu. the 2.2 idea is cool, tire/wheel/lift combo pack. hopefully theyll release the hilifts brother with a yota body, either newer or next gen bruisaneer. or maybe, just maybe some 1.9 beadlocks?

1) Leafsprings with many very thin leafs. that way they could flex more but still hold the weight of the thing and not get deformed.
2) More tires.
3) Marlin crawler proved that you can never have gearing that is too low, so make a lower 1st gear.

As far as Tamiya, they could just release the chrome trees without being chromed, and re-release the mountaineer body as a kit. I really like the idea of rear axle additions to replace the knuckles. I might have to try making something myself. For the aftermarket I'd love to see more 1.9 tire choices, especially Swampers. I've already seen the Diaz chassis', and the front bumper for the Juggs, but I'd love to see some real 4x4 type front bumpers with winch fairleads, metal rock sliders, and some stock F350 steel wheels. If somebody wanted to be enterprising, they could make winch kits for those incapapble of figuring it out.

Here is a guy who makes crew cab bodies and bed caps.

I think a very scale plow would be pretty cool.

a tranny like the old 3 speeds - long but low - to reduce the COG and increase centre clearence but still keeping all 3 speeds hows that for a kettle of fish?
