Okay, so this is for my son and I and this is our first RC. We chose RC4WD because of the sheer detail as we really enjoy that. We bought the limited ARB edition, but we plan to mod it and thus rendering it not collectible probably. Oh well as that’s not our reason. Posting here so I can keep track of ideas and mods. It’s suppose to arrive tomorrow. :D Pic from site.

Oooooo, you gonna have to start making the hard choices between toys for the Cruiser or toys for the R/C. Good thing is mods are relatively cheap and not terribly labor intensive. Then it becomes an addiction... :cool:

See? You never knew you needed a R/C delivery vehicle until you got one. Now you need a drone to deliver the FJ to deliver the coffee. See where I'm going with this?

I realized I haven’t updated this in a long time. I did end up putting on leaf springs which the install was fairly easy, but some minor adjustments to steering linkage was needed and that was frustrating finding parts to mod so as to not ruin the factory parts.
I also put on a soft top with a cage and rear bumper. I want to mod the top so the sides can role up. I also need/want factory looking steel rims with hub caps.
This is a toy and as such it doesn’t get my attention all the time. I did find a perfect size Indiana Jones figure which looks similar to me. 😂
