Ultimate JK rubicon with new pics

Post by DARKHORSE on Mon Sep 15, 2008 9:23 pm

Well I think its time to finally put this build on the board.. I have been building on it here and there for the last couple months.. im trying to get it ready for the scale event at Crawlapalooza 08..

So here is quite a few pics of the current build process..

It started off as the toy r us special, And soon as I recieved it I stripped the body and cut and narrowed and cut the leaf spring perches of a D12 chassis I had laying around.. I made my own 4 link, And I had Zorlac make me some front hoops for the shocks and springs.. Then I took a set of rc4wd 1.9 rock crushers and reduced them down to be a hair bigger then the 1.9 slingers and put them on rc4wd 1.9 beadlocks, but painted the rings and centercaps for more detail..


Then I made the front bumper out of brass and bent and brazed it all together. This is the look I was going for





I cant stand the original green paint, So I slapped a new coat of yellow on it, And sprayed the fenders with a rubberized coat of black and then detailed all the window trim and cut out the front windows to appear rolled down.. While I was at it I disassembled the chassis and painted all the components black ..


Then I added LED,s to the headlights, taillights and cut out the front corner lights and added an orange housing and a low intensity leds..


Next it was time to rip off the ugly step bars and make some rock sliders out of hollow brass tubing



Yesterday I made the fake Fox reservoir shocks out of turned down TLT shocks and used styrene to make a holder for the reservoirs





Today I took it to work and detailed the interior.. I sprayed the seats and dash with SEM medium grey, and then added the darker grey insets.. Then the shifter and e-brake was painted black.. Then I decided the interior needed some flair for out on the trails so I added Kicker SX component speakers, a factory navigation headunit and 4 headrest monitors for those who end up sitting in the back...





Here is a quick poser shot with the lights on , I still have alot more to do to it before its running..

Looks awesome! You did a hell of a job with that front bumper! Hopefully I can get my scale rig together soon.

Looking good, it looks like it will crawl well too. Don't forget to work on your comp rigs.

Well I made the light rack and modified some clodbuster lights, Now I have to wait for the high intensity LED's to get here and the KC light grill covers.. Be prepared to be blinded..

Yes sir, I have everything taken care of except the drive train.. I am trying to save up enough money to get an axial tranny and one of the t-cases from Eritex Inc.. Im starting to really sweat here.. Sometimes I feel like Im not gonna be able to finish this build before the comp.. So I take it to work with me and work on it there too...

Where did you come from!!? Welcome back.


Awesome lights, I guess there isn't any reason for me to put lights on my scaler, since you will be lighting up most of Disney, Oklahoma.

Sorry for the shitty cell phone pic, But I had to make something to cover the battery pack for the lighting system on this.. So I made a Box with Kicker Subs and an Amp to cover it.. I like it..
