  • "Scaler" 2 DR Yukon

    Don't know if you guys saw this posted on RCC, but.... I had some guy offer me a lotta green for the K5 so it's gone PAYMENT PENDING

    So I'm a get this Yukon running and rebuild the Short Bus for my 1.9er.

    Well.........

    After searching for a different chevy/GM hardbody I found this. A very nice detailed Yukon w/full interior, but it was huge!

    Toooooo huge. So I had to talk to a guy about a body & we came up with what GM should have...!



    Did a little trading at a scale comp a few weeks ago & scored myself a nice used diaz chassis. Made some delrin cross braces, mounted the tranny , hung my tlt axles and got a pretty nice fit.

    I wanna lower the body on the chassis a lil bit, and kick the front axle forward a hair.

    I started on some tube bumpers allready & I wanna make some rock rails.



    Here's all the specs:

    Yukon hard body
    tlt axles
    Diaz chassis
    narrowed Imex claws
    Proline beadlocks
    full interior soon to come

        Looking great Matt Hope to see this one soon.


        Ever give thought to keeping one of your scalers for a more than a few months ?

        Great build, keep it up, can't wait to see it finished.

              Nah

                        I spend ALOT of time searching the net for "The Next Body"! Wait till you guys see it in person. You can't even tell it was chopped down.

                        Yeah this is a pretty cool body....but nat as cool as the S10 Blazer I got. Now that's a one of a kind!


                        I'ld like to keep a scaler, but I enjoy building em too much. Do you remember how many times I changed my comp rig last summer. I got my scorpion dialed in. There's nothin to do to it, and I gotta wrench so scalers it is!

                        Plus it's my job to sell RC's
