Any truck kit is going to require modification to get the ride height you want. How much modeling experience do you have? Check out Pegasus Hobbies for your wheels and tires.

What kind of trucks do you like? There are a lot of great choices out there, narrow it down to a few brands so we can help you better.

Here's one I'm currently working on. It's an AMT Chevy 454ss, I'm using a Testors Chezoom frame, suspension and engine, and Aoshima wheels.

I bought the Chezoom kit on Ebay, as well as the hood. The hoods haven't been listed in a while as the seller has been having some issues. Good thing I stocked up on them while I could. As far as the rims, do a search on Ebay for Aoshima Mega Rim.

Thanks, to tuck those rimms like that did you have to cut the bed in the rear, so it would clear?

Yes, the front in fenders were cut out as well as the bed to clear the notch.

I still need to do some more trimming to make them tuck right. As far as the frame, it's a tad too long, I need to shorten it a little.

Here's the Chezoom. You want the full detail kit to get that frame, not the quickbuilder.

You can use whatever frame you like or even build your own.
