Looks great man! It looks like it has a nice weight to it just in the still shots, how does it look when driving? Like nice "heavy lumber" to it and such? lol

Yeah. This pig is at 12 lbs so far.

And what’s a wrecker without some outriggers.
Copying a manual set from the m816

Showed up and inside a box beam

this whole thing slides out and then unscrews at the collar near the joint.


And mine in the stowed position


And out and down

Little more progress


Whipped up a towbar for vehicle recovery


Used the hc4 bed with homemade frame and axle and some BuddyL wheels to make a m105 trailer.


Also added a bench vise to the front bumper


A Jerry Can in the stock front step location


And a Hobart motor welder in the bed.


The Hobart is hiding an air pump which will get its own esc and run the smoke unit I’m working on.

Thanks!
And with everything going into this truck, the tires were going flat.

So I picked up some deuces wild foams from crawler innovations which are good for rigs over 8 lbs.


Changing the tires like a boss


So many wires.
Changed from my 3ch radio to a 6ch. The air pump is on ch3 which is a dial on this radio. It’s program mixed to ch2 so it speeds up with throttle input, but it’s also manually adjustable so I can make it chooch while parked, or idle up for winching.
The shift servo is ch5, and I found a receiver controlled switch for ch6 to run the smoke box so I can turn it off or on, uh remotely.











And I ran it around a little.

Nice job, the m35 is looking great! I'm loving all the details and functionality you're adding. Those outriggers are really cool.

I might redo the towbar you used on the chevy, for a more wrecker style lifting drawbar.
If you put a set of D-ring shackle mounts on the rear bumper, you could remake the K shaped bumper-lift tow bar with the pivot at rear. Then you'd be able to swap between shackles, the bar, or leave the eyes empty

I see the winch lines have the snatchblock hooks, are the top attached to the boom equipped with hooks also?

Have you seen the led beacons?

I get what you’re saying about the tow bar. My design was loosely based on the military’s towing setup. They use a tow bar that either has feet which attach to the front bumper shackle mounts for flat towing, or attaches to axle clamps that clamp to the front axle and a wiffle tree (spreader bar) attaches to the towed vehicle’s shackles and provides a center lift point for slung towing.

Yeah the original winch hooks are hanging from some m2 cross bolts I put under the upper pulley to make it a 2 part line (10 pounds) so I can unhook and have a one part line (5 pounds). Ideally I’d have a ring on top of the hook pulley so I could do a 3 part lift line (15 pounds). I might have to put a longer line on the winch for that. I already put double pulleys on the tip of each boom for 3 part line.

I have seen them, but I already have a 10 pack of 10mm yellow flashing LED’s prewired for 6v so that’s what I used.
They look about right based on the convoy lights on some of the 1:1 trucks I’ve played with.

Looks like a beast, how'd it handle the trail?

Get to do any offroad recoveries?
