    Default GCM Skeleton J2 Chassis Tech Info-Now Ordering

    Hello, all you scale truck lovers!

    Here's the overview and Tech info of the all new GCM Skeleton J2 Chassis lineup. Check out this YouTube Playlist for all our Tech and Info videos also.
    First off, here's the build thread links that go with this chassis setup:

    >>Class 1 Jeep 2dr JK build thread LINK<<

    Class 2 Jeep 2dr JK Offroad build thread LINK

    This brand new GCM designed chassis setup will satisfy your performance and scale truck build all in one shot!
    With many setup options, this Coil-Over shock and link frame set is designed to fit your Axial SCX transmission, in harmony with our GCM 1:1 Transfer Case. It's been tested using K44 Axles (from RC4WD), GCM TerraMod Axles, and SCX-10 axles with easy fit and great suspension movement, but can be adapted to many other parts as well. This chassis design is optimized for Panhard and 3link front suspension setups, with driver's side drop (left side) and top link, a common modern setup, but can be easily swapped to a passenger's side drop in minutes.



    Just as our CrossCanyon Chassis kit was designed to fit the NewBright Jeep 4dr Unlimited body, this new J2 Chassis was designed specifically for the (E-Bay) 2dr JK Rubicon (with opening doors), because that body required a special frame profile to match the full scale interior in the new 2dr JK body. With a perfect fit available, there's no limit to the JK 2dr setups you can achieve using this Skeleton J2 chassis!
    Using the J2 Chassis with this great JK hardbody, you can also add on just about any of the popular aftermarket SCX Rail mounting bumper options with little effort. We trimmed down the long mounting brackets on these RC4WD Rampage bumpers (shown in our pictures) and they mounted inside the J2 rails just perfectly for a super scale look!



    Along with the usual Delrin center skid plate, GCM 1:1 Transfer Case, hex hardware, Chassis rails, adjustable bolt-on rear shock tower plates, and Front Axial Motor/Trans mount, there's also a DUAL servo mount up front! This little unit holds everything together up front and allows an offset Frame mounted steering servo AND another front center mounted servo for spool winches, or the TZI World Beefy winch shown in our pictures. If you don't want to use the second servo mount for a winch, then use it for an electronics tray or FWD battery tray, which is included in the Combo Kit as well!



    With a linked adjustable wheelbase From 10.5 inches to 13 inches, there's a setup for you here. We also offer options for link kits (sold separately) for J2/K44/Yota axle setups and J2/TerraMod axle setups to help you build your 2dr JK hardbody with ease and no body modifications at all.

    The J2 Chassis setup works great with 60-80mm rear shock sizes and 60-90mm front shock sizes, We recommend shorter shocks in the rear to keep the wheels tucked in and have no body modifications when using the 2dr Hardbody.

    Includes the following parts:
    2 Aluminum frame rails
    1 Front Axial trans/motor mount
    1 GCM 1:1 T-Case Complete kit
    1 Delrin Center FLATSKID plate with lower link and T-Case mounts
    1 Front Servo Mount with Dual Servo option bracket
    1 Front Electronics/Battery Tray option
    2 Bolt on adjustable Rear Shock tower plates
    Full hex hardware for assembly

    All parts and all hardware are BLACK.

    You must provide a set of truck Axles, and an Axial transmission, electronics, etc to build a complete truck.

    We've got a new Skeleton Ultimate Combo now available!

    Due to the ever popular SCX-10 axles, we thought it was time to get a combo ready for this fitment. It's a dreamy setup that's way cheaper than K44s and tough as nails.

    Here's a pic of the C2 TerraMod Ultimate kit all running less body and battery. Quite a compact little thing that runs fantastic!

    I did finish building the SSD axle truck today, and it's really really good. I made the bent panhard link straight again (from the Axial Ultimate Skeleton Kit) and then spaced it 5mm longer, and that's the only change for the SSD housings over the Axial SCX housing.

    Stuff on this truck:
    Chassis kit: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - J2 AXIAL ULTIMATE Combo
    Bumper Mounts front and rear: GCM Racing ShapeWays Store
    Wheels: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - Baja Detroit BL 1.9 Rim
    Hubs: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - Black GCM LOCK Scale Hub Set
    Axle Housing: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - D60 Axle Case for SCX - SSD059
    Tierod set: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - TI Steering links for SCX - SSD024
    Hubs: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - SCX Pro C Hubs Black- SSD068
    Knuckles: GCM Racing WebStore-2015 - SCX Pro Knuckles Black- SSD066
    SCX10 Rubicon Bumper Set front and rear

    Really nice stuff! Pics shown below:

    It is a beautiful chassis guys. Nice to see you make a chassis to support the eBay Jeep body. Would you consider making a specific chassis design for the eBay 1/9 Toyota LC80 body?
