Default Tamiya XLT Ranger

Here is a XLT I got off ebay a few years ago, I traded it for a 2.5 TMAXX off ebay, After getting the truck I drove it around for a while and then traded it and a Nitro rustler for a tamiya Hilux, I felt sick for getting rid of it for the hilux since i enjoyed driving it so much, The guy who i traded it to called me up and said it was to slow for him and he was going to give it back free soon as I got it back in the mail I Deemed it my girlfriends rc truck so I would never sell it slowly Ive been building it up for her, I Just got the rims I really want this truck to stand out, Possibly get it in readers rides of a magzine, thats the ultimate goal.

BEFORE RESTORATION ( PICS BELOW ARE OF THE TRUCK OVER THE YEARS)

Vid of when i first got it





Here are the accuatle ebay pics of when i got it.

















Pics of the truck over the past years and different stages of restoration

Next to its big Brother

Current pics, Like i said my goal is to get it in readers rides or some magzine, It would be a huge accomplishment for me, I have a nice radio box for it, Hopefully it will be complete in a few months, Big thanks to Bryan from NJ for the rims








The prolines look so much better

thanks guys, Yea I never saw it done so I did it, I had to heat up and bend the up rights where the steering linkage go. I always wanted to build a 4X4 Blackfoot but that will do for now,
