Today I scored one of these GI Joe Jeeps for free!

I think it would make a sick class 3 rig. It's pretty heavy and just needs some axles and leaf springs. ANyone got some for sale?

That would be fun to build. What is the width and wheelbase?

Aren't these kinda big for any class. It would be a fun build though. I remember seeing one at an SVSC comp a few years ago. I think stock SCX-10 axles fit, at least like a stock Jeep.

Aren't 1/18 scale rigs silly in class 1? :) seems there are no scale rules other then tire sizes. So if I went 2.2with it, it could be class 3.

I've had one for years. Been through many changes. I can say it doesn't look good unless it's running 2.2's and big ones at that. Mine has boggers on it and it is real fun but not competitive in class 3 in any way but i'm in it for fun so that doesn't matter much to me. It does make a good trail truck though.

Here is the build thread: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/2-2-scale-rigs/82901-joes-flatty-revival.html

Walt (Bigski) from SVSC has one as well. His has much more detail and works better in my opinion. I say just go for it and have fun.
