Axial Racing and Jeep have teamed up to bring you this latest installment based on the widely popular SCX10 Chassis, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon! This is an awesome looking rig and we here at Pro-Line have all the cool upgrades and accessories to help you put the finishing touch’s on this awesome looking scale rig!
First off, I removed the stock plastic shocks and added a set of out 6060-00 Power Stroke Scaler Shocks. These are metal bodied / adjustable shocks that are more correctly sized for a scale appearance.
Next I took a set of our 1163-14 1.9 Interco TSL SX Super Swampers and installed them on some of our older 2.2 8 Shooter bead lock wheels. Yes that right, I stretched the tires to install them on the larger wheels and I installed some stiffer 2.2 White Truck foams to help support the weight of the rig and give the tire a little mode side wall bulge. It’s an old trick that works pretty good and the tire still has good traction characteristics.
Next, I removed the stock bumpers and went with our 6088-00 Ridge –Line Narrow Bumper set. You will need to replace the OEM AX80125 Front Bumper Mount with the AX80046E Front bumper mount from the standard SCX10 Honcho Kit. This will allow for Proper mounting of the Ridge Line Bumpers on the Front of this vehicle. Note that you will have to do some trimming of the front posts to get the proper spacing of the bumper to the body.
Next I added our 6085-00 Performance Off-Road Crawler / Desert Truck Light bar Kit and the 6084-00 Rectangular Scale Off-Road Tubular Roof Rack. For the light bar, I made custom mounts by using Axial angled rod ends and a longer set screw’s to join them together.
Next I decided to finish it off with some of our scale crawler accessories. I used the battery and Power inverter from our #6074-00 Assortment #6 and the fire extinguisher and water jugs from our #6075-00 Scale Assortment #7. The crawler accessories box, and cooler from our #6040-00 Scale Assortment #1, and the Axe, Jack, Shovel and Pry Bar from our #6045-00 Assortment #2. The Welder, Impact Gun and Hammer came from assortment #5 6073-00.
