Step 2 & 3: Transfer Case and Frame Rails

So far really impressed with the organization of this kit. All the parts are all well laid out. The "QC Passed" sticker really means something. No extra parts left over, no missing parts. Someone must really be inspecting these parts.

What is the wheelbase on this? I eventually will get one and thinking about the new Pro-Line 4Runner body.

I have a pro-line SR5 Hilux, but not sure if I'll use that yet.

Made some progress this weekend up to a stock build.

Next steps... figure out what body to use and I've got some upgrades already on the way.
