Got new 1.9 beadlock wheels and tires for Mr. Jimny. $30 for the wheels and $20 for the tires. I love the finish on this one. Looks like sand-blasted finish.



This beadlock mounting toll works great. Mounting beadlock wheels really takes a lot of time and effort. Usually, 15-20 minutes to mount per wheel. But with the help of this tool, five minutes per wheel only.





Mounted. Looks great!



This set even comes with center caps.





Love it!

I got it from an Asian online shop called Lazada. Also avaiable at AliExpress.

CFX's first outdoor trail at our friend's place. We drove about 130km down south.









I'm very impressed with this little one and keeping up with the 313mm brothers was not a problem at all. I'm glad that aside from looking good, the upgrades are worth it.

Those wheels look great, and are a good price as well. I just wish they had SLW hubs so I could put my wheel weights on them.

I really like the non beadlock looking beadlocks for the scale trucks.

I'm not a fan of those wheels either. Simpler the better for me.

Upgraded the shocks. Been wanting this set of KYX for quite sometime now. It's been in my cart but never purchased it. Until I saw it in another online shop at half the price ($28 for 2 pairs) and bought it right away. Rebuilt them and added oil. Works great! Spring rate and rebound is really nice and smooth.

Finally an axle guard!

It is inevitable that the diff housing will get scratches and scrapes. So guard is very important. This is also the last mod pieces of this rig for the under chassis (I think). Now it's ready for this weekend's trailing and crawling.

It's been a while since I updated this thread.

- Installed servo guard skid plate



- aluminum shock tower extension for 90/100mm shocks.





The suspension works like a charm. Very accurate and body roll is great.
