Hi all I'm mew here, but I'm from Texas so I thought I'd share my build. I'm on RCCrawler. With the same name. So I bought Wrangler body a few weeks ago and just beganing to start it. I have the Axial Scx-10 frame. I have had it for about three months now and I love it. It does great on everything. Now on to the build!

I got the Outback tire carrier.

I'm using the stock Axial rims and tires.:Shaking: Here is the set up.

I'm using the Axial front and rear bumbers. To mount the tire carrier you have to drill 2 holes in the rear bumber.

The holes

I'm using the Proline body. It is very detailed and very good looking. Althought I would have like to have the newbright body, but wasn't about to pay $80 for one. I need one more coat on the fenders and roof, and it will be good to go.

Well I got lazy and still haven't gave it another coat. But I did get it cut out and mock up. Time for some pixs!:mrgreen:

I don't know why it is leaning so far back. Time for some new shocks?

The Axial bumbers look gook on a Jeep.
