This is my latest attempt at 4x4 domination, with the body of a 97' Jeep Wrangler TJ on top.
About this creation

Aesthetics: It looks like a Jeep. There is no spare tire on the rear because of approach angle/weight distribution issues. The headlights work, and the tailgate opens.


























Suspension: There is 4-link suspension front and rear, with large shocks. It isn't as long travel as I would hope, but there is still quite a bit of travel, and it is quite flexible. I put a full skidplate in, which was flexible in between the axles to let them rotate relative to each other.




















Steering: An L-motor with 9:1 reduction operates the front rack steering. It is powerful and tough.




Drive: An XL motor is in each axle, and is reduced 36:12, and then 24:8 again, for a total reduction of 9:1. The tires were stuffed with marbles to lower the weight distribution. Perhaps because of this, it occasionally needed more torque (Though the friction of mud in the portal axle hubs also contributed to this!)







Winch: An L-motor at 24:1 pulled a winch that was sufficient to lift the whole Jeep.

Quoting Matt G-ria Honored but shocked to be the first to comment on this. Absolutely incredible build. Great pics. Love the technic mechanics. And they’re all hidden masterfully under an attractive and accurate shell. Love it
Thanks!
