    Jeep JK - Trophy Rig

    I am now the curator of a Jeep JK that I will be using to crawl a few rocks, carry Lil Big Tex's supplies, and overall just having fun with. I did not build this rig. It was created by Urthatgood on RCJeeps.com.

    The following is a run down on what was used to build the JK:
    - New Bright Jeep JK body
    - Generis Custom Metalworks Cross Canyon chassis
    - Axial AX10 axles (diffs locked)
    - Axial 1.9 Beadlock Wheels
    - Axial suspension links
    - Pro-Line 1.9 Flat Iron tires
    - Junfac drive shafts
    - RC4WD R2 transmission
    - RC4WD Killer transfer case
    - RC4WD Dual Rate Scale shocks
    - RC4WD Outcry electronic speed controller
    - Novak 55t brushed motor
    - 3Racing 1/10 scale winch and controller
    - Custom made styrene front bumper
    - Rear bumper spare tire carrier

    I have yet to buy a radio or battery for the rig. I should be getting those in the next day or two. It came with some Axial wheels with 1.9 Pro-Line Flat Irons mounted. I immediately replaced them with the DNA Assassins and Rok Loxs I already had in my bag. I also have some other changes in store for the JK. I will be going with a stronger more durable front bumper, replacing the rear bumper and spare tire carrier, and also adding some side bars to help protect the body. I will also be adding some scale accessories along the way. I will also be placing an order for some Jeep emblems from ScaleOffroad.com. Of course lights are a must, so they will be added at some point. Well enough of my plans for now, on to the pics. I hope you don't mind me posting a "few pics".

    Here are some pics of what is under it's body.















    That RC4WD Killer transfer case is so sexy. I hate the body has to cover it up.

    I woke up early this morning so I decided to place some grill material on the JK. The grill material is actually aluminum clay mesh used in clay art. I painted it black. Here are a couple of pics.





    The winch is not mounted to the bumper. That is why the winch connection is visible.

    More updates coming.

    Looks like a nice truck.

    Is this the rig you are using for the Murrel Trophy?

    The wheelbase is currently at 320 mm. I need to extend it 330 mm to center up the rear wheels.
