Declasse Rancher - XC Build [Now Bronco]

Recommended Posts

I've recently bought an original Isuzu MU with a broken body so I decided to build a Rancher from GTA Liberty City on it.

I replaced the lower links with rc4wd steel rods and rod ends and re positioned stock upper links to shorten the wheelbase. Also replaced the shaft with a high-lift one.

I had this steering idea in my dream. I mounted an rc4wd steering box inside the brick to replace the stock mechanism. Works good, looks good.

Should be a neat project, I look forward to seeing how the body turns out.

Great idea with the steering box :)

Thank you! I am working on it right now.

Rancher body was too small for XC chassis so I abandoned it and bought a Bronco body.  I also changed the steering setup completely and mounted the servo front. This is the best method, very solid.

Servo is mounted by an rc4wd Trex-44 servo bracket and Knight Hauler suspension parts.

Notice the 1 piece steering rod.
