“This was an amazing build, lots of fun, that’s why I’m a big Chevy fan. These trucks have a timeless feel to them. So many people have taken these truck to the next level, in 1/10 RC to real 1:1. They look great in practically any colour and the list goes on. I will go-ahead and say for some people wanting to do a build like this, don’t be intimidated by it. This was a relatively easy build. I started off with a pre- assembled gmade sawback leaf spring chassis kit. And an Rc4wd blazer body kit. Both products are well worth the money and work very well with each other along with minimal modifications. I purchased a gmade front tube bumper and it can with a mount which is exactly what I needed to allow the rc4wd bumper to fit it. You are required to drill 2 new mount hole in the drop box if you want to use the stock Gmade body mounts. All in all I had a fun time with this and it’s forever evolving each time I look at it.”
