Default Kayden's JK

My nephew has shown a lot of interest in crawlers lately, and I figured it would be good to build him one. In discussing it with him, he decided on a Jeep with big tires. I picked out the Proline 2013 JK 2Dr body, because I knew it was bigger than average, and would be similar in size to my Bronco... https://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/sh...ad.php?t=86760

I did a rough trim on the body, and stole my wifes Scx10 chassis from under her Sr5. Dont worry shes getting a Scx10II chassis. I threw some Proline 2.2"Tsl's on it and took some pictures.

The next step was to mount her up and start paint.

So yesterday, We went into the garage and trimmed the frame rails, and mounted the rear of the body with a hinge, and extended the front body posts.

Paint this afternoon>...

Looks great 4x4! He must have been stoked A perfect match for that scx10 chassis. Is it 1/8 scale? comparable to Newbright size?

Yeah stoked is an understatement! I am working on thinning out the trucks I am not using anymore, and I figured, What would be better than getting my Nephew who already has a intrest in Rc his own Scale Crawler?

As far as size, It is almost exactly the same size as my Newbright Bronco is, so they are the same scale.Its a great run down memory lane for me too, due to my first real crawler buid had the same body. Using WheelyKing axles.

Hey thanks! Yes it was quick and super easy. Just Painted up the body, and mounted it on an existing Chassis. The tires were premounted too, and the colors worked.

Ya it looks pretty big. I like the larger trucks. Speeaking of Wheely King axles, that's what my kids' trucks are running (Crawler King chassis's). The axles are super strong as long as you get them to steer . We've had no issues with them. I'm sure you are aware having a nephew, the young'ins don't mess around!

Super awesome of you to do that for him. I hope it spurs a life long enjoyment for the hobby.

Intresting,I have two sets of WK axles that have been converted into a 6x6, and cannot keep dogbones in them.... I break one or 2 nearly every run. I am considering going to smaller tires, was running the big 5.4" Swampers. Hmmmm I may just have to dig the chassis out.

They look good together Looking at it, it looks maybe 1/8th scale? I have a Newbright body to replicate my 1:1 just dont have my 1:1 where I want to leave it, so I have no finished "goal" to replicate yet lol.... Awesome as always 4x4... , Mark

Correct... Both are around 1/8 th scale making the 5.4" tires look smaller than they are.

Out of curiosity, What is your 1:1... I have always wanted a replica of my 1:1.

A lifted jku on 35" tires.., theres a pic on the 1:1 forums. I gutted the interior- all custom, two tops + sun shade, Full doors and "electrified" factory half doors, onboard preasurised water system and a bunch of other stuff...
I really want 37" tires but the factory axle wouldn't take the abuse of wheeling. As it is right now the front axle is beefed up with a truss and gussets etc, etc but I've only polished a turd in so far that has been super reliable for 35's but too weak for anything bigger

Can you find a body for your 1:1? Could make one from scratch but that would be a lot of work?
