Toyota Hilux High Lift. I purchased and built this over Christmas 2014. Since then, I have slowly upgraded and modded the High Lift as I went. This was my second High Lift build, so I was familiar with the chassis and what I wanted to change before I got underway.

Components & Hop Ups Used:
*Full ball bearings
*RC4WD 55T Brushed Crawler Motor
*RC4WD Soft Leaf Springs
*RC4WD 1.9' Wheels and Tires
*RC4WD Steering Bar

*Shift Servo moved to behind the transmission
*Steering Servo moved to the front where the shift servo normally sits
*Removed portion of the transmission/motor cover to allow motor changes without requiring disassembly/transmission removal

It's painted in TS-3 Dark Yellow. From time to time I debate adding some of the Mountaineer/Mountain Rider decals, but can't decide if it would like right on the Dark Yellow -- thinking a repaint to either Pearl White or Mica Red would be necessary.

Nov 2020 Update: Sold to clear out space; sadly, my plans for a Mountaineer/Mountain Rider re-creation will have to wait.
