This is a Silverado many of you may remember from almost two years ago. It was built by a member on RCCrawler.com that hasn't been active on the board in awhile, NatalieMorgan. I purchased the truggy last week without any axles, wheels or tires. I am in the rebuilding process with a few changes in mind.

The original build included the following:

- Old Diaz Prototype chassis
- Intimidator Silverado Hardbody
- Axial Forward Mounted Trans
- Rummy RC Transfer case
- RC4WD Dual Spring Scale shocks
- Driver and Scale Bed accessories

The changes I have made so far:

- Axial axles
- R2J 4 link trusses front and rear
- RC4WD 100mm Ultimate Scale Shocks
- Aluminum bed
- Axial 8 hole 1.9 beadlock wheels (temporary wheels)
- Proline 1.9 Flat Iron tires (temporary tires)

Here are some pictures of the rig without any adjustments made to link lengths.

The rig came with lights already installed. They are run off of a stand alone 9 volt battery.

I found these little boxes at Office Depot. So I bought two different sizes to try out. I will be painting them black and locating my electronics in their. Which size do you think looks best on the truck? You will also notice I have changed the bed surface to .016" sheet aluminum on top of a styrene sub bed.
