Default Blue Berry!!! Progress pics

Well here starts project... BLUE BERRY


The Chassis is a GPM Juggernaut chassis that is hard to come by. There were not allot of these made and I happen to score this one off ebay a few weeks ago. Allot of the parts I'm using will be Jugg, txt, and possibly some clod parts.

I will still be using the ESP LWB kit and a few other parts too from that kit. I picked up some new chome wheels and those new Imex clod tires also.

This will be taking me awhile as allot of these parts don't just screw together and my time is really short now with work being soo busy ( Dam diamonds!!! )

Heres a few pics.

Not a bid fan of GPM, but the chassis looks nice. I can't wait to see the final results.

Hey guys thanks.

Well I made a some progress with blueberry. I did the EZ stuff. I removed the axles and center gear box from the old Jugg chassis and installed it in the new one. [8D][8D][8D] I think its coming out WICKED!!! Its a little high for my liking right now so I may play around a bit with that. I also think the clod body is going to look really aggressive on the frame.

I still have the tires coming and I'm going to get some paint right now. []

Well here is Blue berry in all its glory.

Well just when I thought this truck couldn't get any bigger the tires showed up. I had never seen these before except in pictures and thought they would be the same size as clod tires. But when I opened the box and pulled them out I thought they had sent me kongs. These suckers are huge!!!

I still have lots to do on this but I was able to get a temporary battery tray in so I could take it for a little rip. The truck dosn't really handle that good, dosn't turn to well either, the extra weight has also slowed it down a bit, BUT FRIG IS IT KEWL LOOKING

I can see why it doesn't handle to well.. with the super high CG and the massive Jumbo kongs.
