    Well I have been plugging away at this build for last couple weeks. I saw a feature in a magazine a few months back of a willy's truck turned rock rig. This is the inspiration for this build. I want to hopefully drive this one a bunch so it needed to have a good chassis. SCX10 is the best choice in my mind. With it being 4 linked and all I decided this was a great way to make this body look at home on the chassis. Anyways here is the start of it kinda roughed up. the panels will hopefully look like stock Willy's panels bolted to an aftermarket chassis and cage.

    first was to get a new tcase mount/cross member.



    then I did a front trans and servo mount. Also made my own front shock hoops.




    Just to add my own custom touch to the suspension I made my own lower links.




    The slider, roll cage and rear bed tubes are all incorporated into one heck of a pile of brakeline. I did try to make the frame attaching points nice and clean. no tabs but the tubes are welded or bolted to frame.






    Here are a few shots with the body panels just sitting in place. lots more to do before the metal work is all done and the panels can get attached properly.





    hope you enjoy guys.

    Chris
