Yeah, they are pretty out of date now. The newest that isn’t the Meng would be AMTs F150, which could represent up to 2004. The Chevy and Dodge kits would represent up to a 2002. I think each has been through at least 2 generations, possibly 3.
Feels like Hell would freeze over before we get a full detail modern pickup kit. I would love to see a new F150 with the 3.5 Ecoboost, and they could easily get returns on their tooling. Sure the Meng kit is out (I have 2), but it’s pricy for a lot of people. I’m sure I’ll complain about this every time this sort of topic comes up, but I know that it is tougher nowadays to release a bunch of new subjects.
Okay, so it appears that there are 3 different BFGoodrich tires used. The 2013 10th Anniversary model used the Mud-Terrain T/A KM2s in the 265/70R17 size. The current lineup uses either Mud-Terrain T/A KMs (no 2) in 255/75R17 size or All-Terrain T/A KO2s in 265/70R17 size.
Looks amazing! Did you also build the 1/8 IROC a while back in the dark red metallic? I noticed that you changed the transmission itself to represent the automatic, but neglected to change the shifter and pedals as well?
I will admit that it would be nice to someday have the current GC in kit form. According to the Meng site, this kit will have a working suspension unlike their previous two kits. http://www.meng-model.com/new.php?id=741 I'm very interested to see what subjects they continue to come up with, since they are doing kits so far that no one else has done (yes there were snap Hummer kits, but no full-detail). So far, they've done one from Ford, one from GM, and now one from FCA. Wonder which manufacturer will be next?
Yeah I agree on posting pics, no mention of 8x6.25" anywhere. I doubt the military would have used an oddball bolt pattern, so my guess is some sort of custom application that someone else got ahold of and had adapters made for it.
