Started out with an AX-10, then tore it apart to build a scaler chassis. Here's the project so far:

Once there was an Axial Crawler.....

Just couldn't leave well enough alone:

The tear down plus the interior painting of the New Bright hard body Jeep.

New rear end, new shocks:

New front end with new shocks:

Helpful trolls check their work after installing a 48T pinion:

Just a slight adjustment to the motor and it's good to go:

Everything seems to be in perfect alignment. Let's call it a day.

Leave it to Rolex to have naked midgets with big hair working on his ride.


I like the detail on the interior. It's going to add a ton of look to that body. Did you go ahead and grab up some of the scale accessories from Proline?

:hehe: They can get into all the tight places.

I cut out the rear seat and will be putting in just a flat floor. I've been on the ProLine site checking out the scale accessories, and there will be some added.
As you can see, the trolls already have their own set of tools.

Right now it's a tossup which lid I use. With the 1.9 tires it will be the Dodge Power Wagon. With the 2.2s in the upper pic of the new rear, it will be the big Jeep.
I have a feeling I'll be getting another Crawler so I can use both lids.

Okay, here are the latest updated photos.

Night shot.....

This photo was taken in the desert, with big sand dunes in the back ground. This truck is pure power on those 1.9 tires.

And NOW, FINALLY, the ACTION SHOT you've all been waiting for!!!


This one really needs to be enlarged to fully appreciate it.
