Talking Oil Field Prim Mover KW 396

I deiced to over haul my 6x6 rock crawler and go with something more scale. I try ed to have it done for Indy this year but the black truck was being to much of a pain in my rear. So while I was waiting for my supply's for the fire truck build I deiced to get it back out of the closet and get going with it.

SO here it is I am going off the KW 963 family of trucks. Witch there is many different ways you can order one of these monsters this is the one I liked
most.

Then I cut the fenders off and angled the nose down and I lowered the sleeper to match the roof of the cab.



Now to start filling the hood back in.

Now to build the fenders, I built them out of 1/8 to make them good and strong.


Now I had to modd some stock KH air cleaners to match the ones on the real truck.

Ok here is how I am making the winch work. i am mounting one of the good scale German winches. the winch that started all the other winches nice thing about these is they will pull ALOT of weight with out breaking.




Then I mounted a fair led in the top of the deck for the cable to come threw and wrapped the cable around the drum. So when you run the winch teh drum will turn .

I got a little more detail work done late last night on the rig. I made a movable 5th wheel and 5th wheel ramps.




And as you can see in the picks above I also added a RC4WD King Kong hook.

Then I added a edge for the chain box out of brass angle.

Then I made square blinkers out of 3/8 square tube and cut the King hauler amber light to fit. And I also added brush guards out of brass over the blinkers.


I got the tranny mounted. I used some milled shock mounts for the F350 they were the perfect size and hole pattern.



I also got 2 of the 3 drive shafts in my other one did not show yet.



Then I got the steering done. I used bigger alum tie rods and emaxx ball joints and I added alum black drive hubs and junked the plastic ones. I also used a 645 for the steering and a 5626 for the shifting.

Then i thought a set of these were fitting since it would be 11.4 Lipo and a 55 turn with a 8 tooth.



And the rig is getting a full set of custom milled hubs

They really finish off the look of the wheel I am very happy with them and the quality of them is 2nd to no other..

Greg wanted some side by sides so here you go Greg keep in mind the body will be about 1/4 high when mounted.
