Done for the most part besides adding LED headlights and tail lights.

The owner plans on contacting Badger for some soft top scraps to build a true soft top

I or anyone else who has a Badger top and took out the extra fabric from the window section that he leaves in for delivery probably have some leftover fabric scraps.

Wouldn't the badger canvas be too thick for that small of an application?

I've built several of both. Both have their pluses and minuses.

Axial:

Cons: Almost all plastic, incorrect wheelbase. 90 Body mounting can be tricky

Pros: Better suspension, quieter gears, you can thrash this one.

Gelande:

Cons: Loud gears, tolerances are a tad tight

Pros: most realistic frame, better drivetrain placement, almost all steel/aluminum parts, actually designed for the 90 body, some cool accessories, beadlock wheels.

Bottom line, the Gelande is a top quality kit, my only main gripe is that it is LOUD, and it's so nice it'd be hard to thrash on the trail. If you want a crawler, do the Axial kit.

Yes. You can drop the shocks down and adjust the springs down to get more lift.

I plan on building a 110 on 35s next.

I used lexan hollow tube. I'd use solid next time. With some heat it bends pretty easily. With the hollow stuff you could heat an entire section to get the oval shaped tubes if you really wanted.

RHD NAS spec truck? When you moving the steering wheel over to the correct side?

I gotta say, it looks fantastic-but it also makes me fear getting 3rd anything. Well, maybe not 3rd Radio.

Sadly the body kit is RHD and it's a bitch to move over the steering wheel, but not impossible.

Oki is the best kept secret in the Corps!

Let me know if there is a Disco kit...I may commission WolfFab minatures if you've got the time and access. A CT truck would be sweet.

I'll likely take your word on Oki; wouldn't work for my family situation and it looks like Quantico or a year on the bench before something else.

You can get a Disco body here: http://www.kamtec.co.uk/index.php?pa...hk=1&Itemid=53

This truck has left Wolf's Micro Garage and boarded the cardboard transport for the east coast of the US. I hope the new owner will share photos of the truck in action.
