    that's quite a collection . The ESP kit is a good idea as I'm doing it on mine.

    Thank you.. The upper chassis kit is all I have for my juggernaut. The other stuff, like the 4-link and steering rods I will make

    Who did the powder coating?

    I wouldn't mine trying that on my Jugg if it's not to pricey?

    The bottom one looks incredible. Is that the long wheelbase kit?

    Thank you. The wheelbase is 13.5". It is a 1/2" shorter then the ESP long wheelbase kit they sell.

    Picked up another juggernaut body this week. The previous owner filled in the door handles, the mirror mounts and the slots up by the windshield. I have alot of work to do, to get this body back to stock..

    I have a Jugg body where the previous owner did the same thing. It was all the rage for scale builds in the old days.

    Did you leave it alone or did you fix it?

    LOL It's still in a box of parts. I couldn't deal with not seeing the handles. I figured I'd just make a Supercab out of it someday.

    If I had to fix one that had the doorhandles "shaved," I would probably just cut the door handles from a F-350 High-Lift cab and plastic weld them into the Juggernaut cab.

    The center painted portion of this grille is from an original Clod that had the chrome damaged and the outer is from a brand new Super Clod.

    I'd strip the paint in the purple pond or brake fluid and see if the bondo can be picked out first? Other than that the body doesn't look to bad.

    Im using brake fluid to strip the paint. Cause some of the bondo is coming out easy. The grill has to be replaced and the bumper was was in good shape. The chrome is shot, so im going to paint it to match the body when done.

    I got home last night from work. An spent 4 hour's working on the juggernaut body. I have all the body lines showing. Still working on the slots near the windshield. There was 5 coats of paint on the body.

    What is the best way of cutting hard plastic body's. I have seen people use sewing string?

    Just picked up another juggernaut body in a trade, with a set of jugg rims and tires. It is the blue body. The red juggernaut body I got off eBay.
