CitizenRC Gmade BOM 14-Day Build Series I did that just finished up this week. The build highlighted some of the great Pro-Line BFGoodrich Krawler tires in addition to the Pro-Line Hilux body that I used as well. For this build, I cut the bed portion of the body apart to separate the bedsides and mounted them “dovetailed” onto the BOM’s cage itself which is pretty unique and something I have not seen done before previously. I tried to keep the body simple yet detailed to make it look as realistic as possible.

Gmade BOM Build Day 14: It’s ALIVE! After 14 fun-filled days of building this kit, I am thrilled with how it turned out! With the combination of the Proline 1985 HiLux body and the aluminum Outlaw II replica wheels, I was a able to accomplish the overall look I was after. As promised, I added another @tboneracingrc #LED #lightbar to the front bumper of the BOM that is wired separately with its own dedicated switch. It seriously fit perfectly on the existing bumper holes almost like it was designed for the BOM! To finish off the look and add some scale appearance, I added some details to the bed including a balsa wood pallet and some handmade felt sleeping bags from my good friend (instagramless) Gary. Some recovery ramps were in order along with a shovel (for recovery purposes obviously), so I turned to @1tenthscale and their wide variety of 3D printed scale accessories — and I couldn’t be happier with the quality and look! This build series was a lot of fun for me, so I hope you enjoyed it and let me know what you think of it! Stay tuned for a full review of the Gmade BOM as well as some sweet sweet slowmo of this thing doing work! #gmade #BOM #gmadebom #rccar #rc #4×4 #solidaxle #toytoa #hilux #sr5 #dovetail #bedsides #transfercase #hrptime #hrp #hobbyrecreationproducts #rclife #offroad #1tenthscale #scaleaccessories #recoveryramps #scaletruck #crawler #scaler #tinytrucks #tboneracing #rcarmor #truckbuild @gmade.rc @prolineracing hobbyrecreationproducts.com
