    The flatbed is sick but if you want a pickup bed Mod19rc at Shapeways.com makes the rear cab wall and front wall for the pickup bed. All you have to do is cut the blazer body in half and add his pieces and you'll have an instant pickup. That's what I did. He also sells the tailgate because the pickup tailgate is different from the blazer. He has a lot of cool parts for the Rc4wd Blazer and more to come. Check him out

    All Mod19rc's parts fit the rc4wd blazer not the Clodbuster. When looking at the parts on there you have to make sure they fit the biddy you're using

    That's why I like the rc4wd blazer body. It's massive. More like 1/8 scale

    Even tho the front bumper looks good. I know I can make it better. Bigger and better. I stated with a 1" seek square tube that I cut and bent to make the main part of the bumper. Then added a lip at the bottom to give it some shape. Cap the ends off with steel plates. Them came the task of adding that push bars. I cut slots in the bumper, which was scary because they had to be straight... no exceptions. Cut some thick steel to make the push bar side plates then used square brass tube as the bars. Think it came out looking better than I expected. You can tell the size difference between the bumpers. You can also tell how my metal skills have gotten better lol.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm turn right now. I'm getting such a huge positive response over the black. But it's just primer. It needs to be sanded. If I leave it black I'm gonna spray it with black bedliner, then paint the whole chassis and axles another color for contrast.

    I also am thinking of painting it military tan. I found a tan bedliner I want to spray it with and the wheels to match. Can't decide
