That looks like a nice upgrade. See how it performs.

I didn't realize this was so big...very cool!

This would be a nice combo, tires are 5.7"

thanks for the kind words guys ..

Wow those rims look great and very much the same rims I have on my full sized, Just perfect . Are they RC4WD 2.2 ???. here are a couple of pictures of the jeep beside my trailfinder 2 , you can see the obvious scale difference even though the overall length is close . I am still waiting for the 12mm axle conversion, at that point I will shorten the rear axle . I just had to see the tires on the jeep so I mounted them on the stock rims , have not done the body lift yet but tire clearance is not to bad ,it takes full articulation to get tire rub on the front even at full lock but the rear bind pretty bad . A 1/2" lift should fix all those problems .. loving the look of the big swampers .

managed to get the bumpers made and mounted today . I found a pintal hook just like the one my real jeep has so I fabricated a receiver , even has the quick release with hair pin and the loops for the safety chains LOL. just starting to mount the winch on the front bumper.. I need to get some tow hooks that mount to the top of the front bumper , anyone see them for sale I can find the cable mounted one but not the frame mounted ones . thanks

I figured Iv'e made pretty much everything else ,why not try my luck at the tow hooks . the only ones I can find for purchase are in England , quite the ordeal for something I can make in 20 min . anyway here is what I cam up with . Sure is an amazing approach angle on the CJ ,front and back.

Was able to get a few thing done today . Added the 1/2 " body lift / raised the transmission by making new mounts . also made the upper and lower shock mounts and replaces the shocks . The mounts are made so you can rotate the ends of the shock so they do not bind when articulated . I am more then impressed with the articulation ,even with the hard foam inserts and the vehicle not being at it's full weight it's getting a full 4" of articulation with a bit more weight and some soft foam it's likely going to hit 5" ,it's way exceeding my expectations for a leaf spring rig .. but then again my full sized jeep is getting near 4 feet .

the stock shock bellows looked cool on the shocks and fit well but badly hurt articulation , can't have that LOL, as much as I enjoy scale looks I find performance seem to always trump my decisions . Well to a degree LOL..

Amen . as soon as the snow melts I'm on the trails . still waiting on my RC4WD 12 mm axle conversion and the RC4WD steel rims . I did move the rear shocks inboard so the axle can be shortened .

I recently built a similar one, but I chose a 7.2 v 5000mah battery as the power, after all, the price is better

I am using a 6000mah 7.2 , it's mounted in the dash . When you remove the 2 windshield fold down release screws the dash panel lifts out of the way and the battery is installed inside . I am trying to make it as scale under as on top . This can be very hard to do with a open top Jeep. The sound/light module , receiver and the shift servo will be mounted in the fuel tank . I had a friend print me a fuel tank ,I've mounted it with the proper tank straps . hopefully when done the only thing that you will be able to see thats out of place will be the steering servo but I am going to try to make a rad the covers most of it . I am also looking for a dummy engine to get thing real under the hood .any ideas , it can't be too tall because I've raised the motor . I have about 45mm in height before I'm into hood scoops LOL
