This was a quick one that I started while I was at the tail end of the YJ.

This is based off a truck I used to see as a kid running around my local town. That truck wasn't a Toyota nor was it even the same colour, but 30 years later that truck still stays with me. Many of those memories motivated this build and are reflected within.

Body It's basically a RC4WD Trail Finder 2 “LWB” with a full length bed. I extended the chassis this &*^% much (I have no idea. I need to measure it) with some scratch built fabrication.

Wheels are Boom Racing but they didn't have the fronts in stock so I bought 2 x pairs of rears and some BR hubs, drilled out a hole in the caps and cemented them in.

Interior I didn't realise the RC4WD Trail Finder 2 “LWB” didn't come with an interior. I ordered a dually and printed some accessories and made some other bits and bobs.

Clearly I've still got some things to button up. Hopefully over the next week this will be all buttoned up.

This is nothing like what I see happening with so many talented people within this forum but a quick little build to keep me learning.

That green looks terrible in the very best of ways! But it looks good. I especially like the small touches on the interior, perhaps some felt for a carpet would add a little more depth though? as the shine of the black floor takes away from the look.

But over all I'm curious to see the finishing touches and what kind of bumper it'll get

Thank you. I totally agree, I need something on that floor. I'll keep you updated with the finishing touches
