Well I got this awhile back and have been slowly been working on it but wth my current job status I have had some extra time to wrench on it. So this is how it was when I got it and I will Post up some more pictures later today of the 4 Link set-up I made.

The chassis rails are Junfac F-350 rails.
It also has RC4WD 2.2 Rock Crushers tires on RPM Revolvers
Other than that it's all stock.

Very nice just and the realistic look of the dirt. Just one word of advice is when you tear down that truck it will be a pain in the but beacuse of the Junfac chassis there awesome chassis just durabilty but the 2 side chassis is a but hole but your a great mechanic in rc so no problem very nice truck wish still had my 5 rock crawlers....

Made a little headway on the Hilux 4 Link
It consist of handmade links w/6-32 all-thread, Revo rod ends with Stainless Steel tubing for some looks
I also used some 3/16" alum tubing tapped to 3mm for the standoffs and alum angle for link mounts on the axle and frame.
The axle truss is made from 3/16" brake line with the mounting nuts brazed on.
A little paint and polish and it's done.
If any of y'all have seen the articulation of the leaf springs will know that I have gained about 4 times of what I had.

Thanks Guy's!!!!

I still have a long way to get it where I want it but it's off to a good start.

Next step is to figure out the steering set-up which might be kinda tricky with the 4 link in the way.

Still plan on doing/getting
Changing the 2.2's to 1.9 Beadlocks w/Mudslingers
Soft Leaf springs in the rear
New scale shocks
Try the 3 spd tranny then probably change to a RC4WD tranny

So Thanks again Guy's!!!!!!!!!!

RC4WD prices aren't that bad BUT.................

I'm on the Obama plan now that I'm unemployed and only making $415 a week from my unemployment so it will probably take a little longer than normal.

Well I decided to change the 4 link around and put it in the rear and keep the leafs up front. I also made some mounts for the battery, ESC and RX.
For the Electronics I went with the XL-5 because it was laying around and didn't wanna waste a RSpro or R1pro on the brushed motor another FX-R will be ordered soon. Steering duties went to a Hitec 5955TG and the tranny shifting uses a 5645MG. The next step is to mount the body but I plan on using 1.9 wheels and don't want to get everything looking good just to have to fab up something else. I still need to change out some screws here and there to hex drive but I think it is turning out pretty good so what do y'all think.





















I guess it's time to order those Scale Shocks and some wheels.

I still have PowerWheel motors that you can try out in your crawler. I was going to use them in my GTP with a 4C NiCad, but changed my mind after I found a Traxxas stinger motor.

Damn man why you gotta rag on my motor set-up that's my sweet Mabuchi motor. I was afraid the tranny wouldn't handle brushless power but I just bought a new tranny and it should be here sometime next week and the switch will probably happen then. I'm thinking RSpro with a 21.5T should be the ticket.

Got some body mounts made up. Nothing special just some aluminum.


Front Mount



Rear Mount



On Chassis




Body on Shots





I also ordered some new wheels just like snellemin suggested and here is what they look like. They are 2.2 wheels and I plan on stretching some 1.9 tires on there for that 22" off-road look.

Thanks Andres I think they turned out pretty nice. I've really been enjoying all the fab work I have had to do on this truck. It's a lot more gratifying seeing something that you made yourself than something you picked up off the shelf, don't get me wrong all those shelf items are needed and used over here at my shop. It's just cool looking down at a truck and seeing all your hard work........working.

I'm getting rid of the 3spd tranny as soon as my new trans comes in so there will be more work going on very soon.

Dude, I like the sexy looking body mounts. I bet the body posts are standing tall and firm being mounted to those things.
