    Due to bad shipping I was able to get this Jeep with me in the Black $40.00. All I had to do is patch up all the broken parts that was left.
    So after doing that I wanted to install a really nice frame to make this build hold up on the trail. I went with a aluminum T6 and cut it on my band-saw I then ordered some wraith axles to use because I need the wide axles to make the shocks work. I like the results.
    For the transmission I install metal gears in a axial trans mission and installed it in the back by the firewall so that the drive axle would have no problems mating up to the transfer-case. I also wanted to fit the Willy's Flathead motor over the axial stuff so that it has the feel of the real thing. I think I pulled that off well. It even covers the esc and 4400mah smc-racing lipo. I added some more detail to the motor so that it look real as possible.
    I went with the Traxxas T-Max shocks that are 104 mm long and seem to be well made.
    I ordered the RC4WD 1/8 duel motor winch to mount to the servo mount so it's doing double duty as a bumper winch mount and steering box mount. It worked out well I feel. The canvas top and seat cover will stay in place. I will be making a aluminum roll cage and brush guard also.
    The wheels and tires are 2.2 and I like the RC4WD Rok Lox and the Gun slinger plastic glue on rims for this build.

    I'm saving the piece I pulled so that I can use what I need before I trash it.

    Patching up the front before I hack it up to mount the plate that will serve 3 different things. Steering. winch mount and bumper.

    I made a mirror that swivels so that it doesn't break I also used a flexable mirror so it should hold up.

    I pulled the mirror off one of my 1/6 scorpion buggies on the passenger side.

    I'm getting ready to pull the scale motor and thought I would install a hose to see how it would look.

    I make the hole using tape that I stuck to the bottom of the trans and them marked the holes and the pulled the tape and stuck it to the pan of the motor bay. It took less than 5 min to do all this including drilling the holes.
    This build is simple to do and it really looks great. I see why so many builders like working with these.
    I always do things differently so it should stand out from others you have seen in the past.

    So here is what I think is the best part of this build. That would be the engine bay. How I mount the steering servo is different but it doesn't stand out like this does.

    (((((Keep in mind that I still need to fit a ESC, Reciever and Lipo in here.)))))

    So this is how the rest comes into play.
    Here is a picture of the real thing and what I'm shooting for while still being able to keep it a R/C.

    I added paint and some detail to the motor while waiting for the ESC I need to show up.

    I also ordered metal gears for the transmission and a SMC lipo battery.

    I started on the drive train while waiting for parts also. I pulled the T1 t-case from another build while another one is on the way to replace it. The shocks for this build I ordered for another build but they are to small for that build but perfect for this build.

    The Hobbywing ESC showed up! Going to be some really short wires used on this build.

    So I have the esc covered and when the Lipo shows up I will get it mounted in the front under the grill and radiator.

    I hope I don't have problems with the receiver next to the motor. It's not touching but there is a strong chance that interference could be a problem.

    So here is the lipo in place. I like the fit it is snug but not tight.
