Default Justin's "Ford F-350 Flatbed" Crawling Hauler...



I have been wanting to make a hauler for while. My inspiration was Microgoat's Rollback tow truck and Freddy Gear Drive's F350 Dually.

Body...

Axial Axles...
  • Alum C-Hubs
  • Alum Rear Lockouts
  • Axial HD Diff gear (Rear only for now)
  • RCP locker (Rear)
  • Tamiya leaf springs
  • RC4WD leaf spring mounts
Electronics...
Wheels & Tires...
Drive train...Specs...
  • 19" Wheelbase
  • Flat bed

The body is sitting a bit high, will try to be lowering it about .5".


I will be using RC4WD seats.


Not sure if I will be running the Tamiya Semi gas tanks but they look pretty cool. :)




Make some leaf spring mounts out of steel, seems to do the job.



Rear axle, might be adding two more helper springs....my scalers are pretty heavy.


I also might be doing a sway bar setup on the rear axle, need to test drive it first before I do that.


Close up shot of the sick RC4WD double trouble wheels.


Rear wheels.

Nice truck, I like the gas tanks, but with a 19" wb your turning would be crazy haha, anyway can't wait for another update

Thanks George! I am not worried about the turning radius too much, I will more limited with the long WB when crawling. :)

You need to make it a tilt bed. It would also be cool to make it slid down, more like a flatbed tow truck. Keep up the good work and the sweet builds comming.
