    what to do with my truck?

    Ok guys need some serios opinions here. For those that havnt seen my scaler this is what it looks like.

    viewtopic.php?f=22&t=637&start=40

    So here's my thinking. I like how it looks but its just to dang top heavy for comps. So I really like the proline jeep commanchee body but also the hard body jeeps like the ones wes and john have. So what do you think I should do.

    1. Stick with the croc hunter body. Get new wheels and tires, new shocks, and a body repaint and other stuff.

    2. Get the proline jeep commanchee body(honcho bed) proline floor plan and interior, new wheels and tires, new bumpers more scale stuff and other things

    3. Do a hard body jeep build.

    I'm really moving towards going with #1 or # 2 but also like 3 haha


    Was going to add a poll but don't know how on here

    Stick with the crock hunter, get better tires and shocks, 4link the rear and you should be good to go. I like how you have a different body on your rig.

    Re: what to do with my truck?

    Well just reread the scaler rules and unless I missed it I saw nothing about a wheel weight limit so when I get the new wheels and tires in a few weeks ill and slittle more weight to the front and rear then I do now to help with the heavy body. Gonna repaint it when I get some home time. So alittle more frame/body work. And mabie start working on lights. But ill stick with the croc hunter body just to make the guys that want it drool haha
