1/6 TJ replica

Hope to make a scale replica of my 1:1



Got a new bright body off eBay



Started acquiring parts:
Wraith axles
Ax10 trans
2.2 TSLs
Hemi
Ax10 beadlocks
1/2" square tubing for the frame
16.5-17" WB (99-102" scale, almost all front stretch)




I picked up the measurements for a 1:1 frame and used that to make a scale frame



Used a wraith skid but added 3" to the middle of it.





Mocking up ride height. Needs to be low since the tires come out to be 32" tall




I need to braze the rear crossmember on, and shorten the front of the frame still. I need to figure out the electronics and driveshafts as well.

No updates, a seller on eBay screwed up my order for parts so I need to order the parts from someone else. I also just moved so things have been kinda hectic!

I'll get back to this in the next couple weeks

decided the tires were too small for this scale RC, so I bought a set of monsters someone made. these scale out to be 39" tall




here is also my progress on the AEV hood

The tires dried over night, and got them mounted up on the beadlocks this evening. it has a much better "one ton TJ" stance!

I'm thinking of doing the same thing for the bf for his bday but a mock up of his WK. What did you search for when finding parts off ebay? All I find are toys but not the individual parts I need.
