    jwalker's class 3 military truggy build

    I have been out of the game for a while and this past weekend with my old club had a G6 event and now it has gotten me wanting to make a come back. I had a ton of parts left over from my last time crawling a few years ago so I decided to build a rig. It is a 2.2 military truggy that has TSL's, the wheels will get changed later the stock axial wheels are for mock up, big bore shocks and all axial frame and drivetrain. Right now it has a belly clearance of 3.75"m wheelbase is 12.5", track width is 10.5" at this time. I have the Hand Bros 3 link up front and a R2j rear 4 link truss. I will be taking pics of the build, I have alot of tube work to do on the front and especially the rear. I have 2 Betty bodies so I used one and cut the bed off, I also used Carter Fabs tall fab tabs as a body mount so there are no post of pins, just 4 small screws holding the body down low. Feel free to let me know how I am doing cause it has been a while, lol. Enjoy.

    Thanks Roy, here is a little update. Wasn't sure if I wanted to run a spare on it but I decided to try it out so I built the top bars around the spare tire I had.

    Got another lil update, got some upper cage support done and the cross bar for my spare tire mount, shock mount and chassis brace against the cab. I used CarterFab long fab tabs for the shock mounts.

    Did a rear skid plate on the rear frame, just have to clean it up now. Also did and extra side brace by the cab of the rear cage and started on the front grille and bumper.
