Its modified quite a bit. But for just starting out a trail trekker will be perfect its tuns of fun and doesnt require the maitnance the bigger ones do. I also have a 1.8 crawler and 2 2.2 an use this one the most. Parts are cheap to so thats a plus. Also research the blade smc chassis. Its for the trekker and its a great platform.

Ha, Im working on building mine right now! I have the TT all tore down, about to shorten the chassis (Since I wont use the stock bumpers or body mounts) and have been carving on my CJ7 body (slowly, more time has been spent with the family or the full size Jeep)

What did you use to cut your plastics up? My dremel makes a huge mess of my work space with melted plastic and white dust flying everywhere

I used a razor blade/exacto knife, go over the cut you want several times and then just bend and it will separate perfectly. For more precision use the exacto several times then take fishing line and use it like you would dental floss on the line you cut, the friction will separate the incision.

Cuttings something i can do, painting obviously another story from the pics lol. If you need more help let me know
