It's me again.
Oh man.
Digging on this build already.
Off to a wonderful great start.

Should be an absolute good time to drive too.... being a Long wheel base.

I have this file also! What material are you printing and did you scale the body down any? I want to scale it down some when I print this one.

Thanks!

Thanks everyone!

Bought file from cults3d

Printed in pla and glued with cyanoacrylate. I tried and glue holds so good that testprint breaks. But worried about pla and heat, lets see if it deformats in summer.

My printer bed is 220x225mm, needed to scale down little to fit, to 98%.

I had a plan this being stockish, towing gooseneck car trailer. But not sure anymore.

Interesting build! This truck is on my "probably should build it" list... not yet, have a few other projects in process.
Love the metal work on the chassis!

My Bronco build is printed in eSun PLA+ and also glued with CA. I use the cheap Harbor Freight superglue and the stuff works great!

A note on the summer heat and what not: I have printed some studio scale spaceships for a slew of customers and because they are so big to display inside, a couple have opted to display theirs outside in the elements. Despite PLA being biodegradable, the customers have reported that they have kept a ship outside all year with no deformation or separation.

No progress, too busy at work, and also waiting parts ::pray

Read somewhere that pla holds outside elements good if painted.

I left some Hatchbox PLA prints I had done in my truck for a day or 2 in the sun and they warped pretty bad but it was extremely hot outside. All the other prints I did in PLA were fine otherwise with just normal wheeling and not being sealed up in a vehicle in the sun.

The build is looking awesome though I love how it has the floorboards incorporated into the body, it really adds to the scale realism of the truck. I'm looking forward to seeing some more of this build.

Still waiting reduction unit, need that to decide engine bay. Lots of stuff going under the hood, not sure if there is room for 3d engine, but still printed hinges, so if, it is accessible.

Mounted body to chassis, Made right lenght links, rear shock hoops, and drive line seems ok.
