Default Starwood Motors Bandit inspired build

I have also started my "Nomad" build but been spending most of my time on this build. Not going for an exact replica, just using the build as a reference to what I would like to do. They are both using parts from eachother but there is alot more fabrication needed in this one. I am actually splitting my time between both of them. Here is where the inspiration comes from....

Got more work done and it is coming along nicely. Styrene skills are not the greatest but I will get by...lol. also got another chassis so that I can do the extension. Still need to figure out what to do with the skid since the distance in the center will be alot longer. I have some ideas in mind but we will see what happens.

Altered I think your styrene skills are on point, that looks awesome Your Jeep is coming along nicely. That thing is going to be HUGE!.., and nice to see og members posting in the 2.2 section. It makes me feel as though there has been "less water under the bridge". I'm pretty sure that any day I'll wake up and it will be 2050 or something like that. Time flies by too quickly... Take care for now, Mark

Havent updated this as often as I want to. But after today this is how it sits. There is still alot of work to be done but it's coming along. Havent been paying to much attention to my Nomad build but it gets a little love every now and then. I will update that build at a later time. Let me know what you think 😉

Wow! That looks awesome! Excellent job mating that rear cab. I know those can be tricky getting them to fit just right, because I too, have a Starwood Motors build on the back burner...the Nighthawk.

This build is quite fitting also, for the timing of the release of the new Jeep pickup. What wheels and tires are those? Seems you got the low profile look, spot on.

Definitely gonna keep watching this...us old timers need to stick together.
