    Ok guys here is an update on the new project let me know what u think about it. Did a little mod to the roll cage using the Wraith Kits aluminum lower links that i didnt use. I picked up some 103mm Gmade piggyback shocks. i had moved the position that the shocks mount in and greatly improved the articulation of the suspension had moved the battery to the front and just had to move the reciever box up a little bit and put the ESC under the center console right above the motor. anyways here is some pics please let me know what u guys think would love to get some feedback. THANKS!

    So that's what I've always thought looked weird about the Wraith... Looks a million times cooler with the back chopped like that! Good eye and nice work!!!

    UPDATE!! I have done a few more things as u will see to my ever changing wraith let me know what u think and thanks for all the awesome feedback!
    Here is a list of the stuff i have done so far. By the way if anyone is wondering the rear bumper is not supposed to work with the Wraith its way to wide
    i cut the ends and capped it off with some lexan and re painted it and made a little mount so i could use it i think it turned out pretty good. Also the lights
    are the stock light buckts from the Wraith just trimmed out the holes in the body so they would pop in

    - Proline Jeep Wrangler Wraith body (colors - Lime Ice / Metalic Black )
    - Proline Ridgeline Bumper set
    - 3Racing winch
    - Rc4wd Steel Beadlock wheels
    - Tekin Fx-R W/ T35 HD motor
    - 9000 mah SMC 2s Lipo


    ALSO!!!!! I am thinking about doing 4 wheel steering i would like to know what u guys think about it should i do it or keep it 2 wheel steering. Thanks!
    Anyways here are the picks.

    Very cool looking wraith! With the stock body i prefer the wraith with the long rear, but with the new body that looks great. Like the bumpers and winch also. Nice additions. Wheels would really set this off if they matched the body color, in my opinion. :yuush:
