TRDPRO 5th gen 4runner Expedition Overland Build with offroad camper.

This build will be my 1:1 dream 4runner. I know i can?t have one so just have it in 1:10 scale which also adds up to my yota collection.

This 3d printed bodies are awesome and super strong. I know its a little expensive and requires a lot of work but it will all be worth it when its done.

Pic from mfab4x4

Used tape just to see how awesome the body looks


First joint using CA glue.


Sprayed the whole body with filler primer and sand it with 200




This one will run scx10 frame and scratchbuilt an ifs front suspension. Axles will be rc4wd yota




Some body accessories
Arb safari snorkel





Eezi awn full roof rack








I will only replace the middle part for my front bumper. Like the c4 1:1 bumper. Made of 22gauge steel






Painted my wheels bronze and found my perfect tire - rc4wd goodyear duratrax




Happy scale building everyone!!!

Man if this turns out anything like your FJ then it?s gonna be awesome. Really interested to see how you ?scratch build? and graft the IFS to the scx10 chassis.

This is going to be a grate looking Toyota and I like the works you are doing to it like the rack on the roof. How is the body for fit?

Just wow already looks like an amazing build coming together! Looking forward to seeing this build come to life! Thanks for sharing Bonards29! I like your "what looks to be paint booth" with a big TRD emblem in the back ground! Just makes this build look like a sweet TRD custom build in the making!

Thanks

Thanks. I can’t pass this yota have to do it lol. Can’t wait to see other 5th gen builds

Thanks. I really like how they design the look of this 5th gen. Doing a full plate bumper changes everything.

Love that you are going IFS
Thanks

Thanks. The body is like 1:9 scale which is nice. Fits most of the axles

I’ve been working on the ifs set up for weeks now lol. Ive been looking at my junkyard of nitro rc parts and found a perfect front ifs differential from hpi nitro rs4. The lower control arm will be from the same kit just shorthened it by half inch. C hub are from cc01 kit. Im pretty happy how the wheels stick out a little to the body.


Front diffs on scx10 chassis



Upper control arm are from vintage kyosyo 4runner nitro kit.



This will be mated to cc01 c hub as my spindle.



Ifs front suspension.

Love the IFS. I tried this years ago, but couldn?t get it working. With new technologies this should be awesome.

Looks great! Thats probably a huge hurdle to get over in this build.. And it looks like a reasonably easier conversion for some one with no brazing skillz like my self. Will have to keep this in mind if I ever want to try an IFS conversion myself. :biggthumpup:

Wow Neil, pulling out all the stops on this! I'm not going so accurate with mine, but maybe after watching you do this I'll have to rethink that! Keep it up!

Man that looks so cool. I love those new 4 runner bodies. Can't wait for the finished product. I thing it would look really good in a dark metallic grey.:biggthumpup:
