My latest eBay purchase this incomplete modified high lift.

Body was really tatty but the chassis was fitted with Junfac 4 link kit, shocks and coil springs, hardened prop shafts and axle steering mount.

With the four link kit the wheelbase was too short for the body. I've modified the cab so that it sits
further back and removed a section from the rear bed to bring it forward, then treated them to a nice coat of bright red paint.

The rims that came with it were ok but the tyres were junk so i've fitted my old F350 ones for now. I'm looking to get some larger diameter wheels and tyres to give the diffs more ground clearance and any suggestions as to what might fit would be greatly appreciated.

It's a work in progress but it runs and handles really well.

Looks pretty cool already!
Maybe slightly bigger wheels/tires?
Rollbar?
Limitless possibilities: basics done, now make it your own!

Thanks makato.
I agree with you about the wheels and tyres. I fitted my Konghead set to it this morning and took it out on the rubble pile, it's actually a very capable crawler!
I've added a picture with the wheels on, I think they quite suit it.
More mods to follow.

Looks special with the motor poking through! Konghead wheels look ace!

Nice work! It reminds me of the used one I started with back in 2009.
