Boolean21's Mercedes AMG G63 4x4 truck

Post by boolean21 on Sun 14 Dec 2014 - 22:48

Wanted to build a Mercedes G wagon style truck for a long time....

Was so happy to have found a ready made kit available! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
Missed all the fun of scratch building.... but saved all the time and effort.... and can keep the time and effort for the next project... Smile

Here's some photos of the truck...

The box....




it looks like the Axial Dingo doesn't it?


Steering wheel and dashboard


Looks like beadlock wheels.... haven't tried though....


Plastic front bumper....


Nice fenders....


Top view of the chassis...
The motor and transmission is parallel to the axles....
nice design... will likely reduce the amount of torque twist i hope...


The two speed gearbox and motor mount


Receiver Box


The Battery tray....


Non adjustable shocks.....


oh yeah.... definitely Made in China... Very Happy


the 3-link setup....






the axle....
love the axle design... great for 6x6 builds....  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil


just need to connect another drive shaft here to the 3rd axle.... and a 6x6 is borned....


the steering arm.... looks and feels really weak....


comes with stickers, roof lights, tools, 3x pinions, manual, etc...












done up the stickers....
needs some new grill stickers with Mercedes logo though.... this will come in future DIY low cost upgrades... Very Happy


Done!!

Nice ride! Would be great to see a version with a closed rear cab.
I assume you will provide after-market Mercedes stickers for more realism? pirat

spent some time doing up the roof lights using the same pack of pre-soldered 5V LEDs....

wired up the LEDs....



drilled 2x 1.5mm holes for the wires.....


fits through nicely...







testing out the lights before installing back the windscreen and tidying up the wires....




done!



thanks for looking!

this post is cross posted on both the Mercedes AMG G63 4x4 thread http://sgcrawlers.co.nr/t2232-boolean21-s-mercedes-amg-g63-4x4-truck and the Mercedes AMG G63 6x6 thread http://sgcrawlers.co.nr/t2235-boolean21-s-mercedes-amg-g63-g-wagon-6x6-truck

like i mentioned in my first post....

i will get some stickers printed for the front grill of this truck...
and here they are...  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

Some Brabus stickers...



and the front grills....


decided that the 4x4 will have the front grill with the Mercedes emblem.... Smile


and the 6x6 to have the front grill with the Brabus logo....



hope the stickers boosted some horse power on these trucks... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

thanks for looking!
