Shouldn't be an issue on a Jeep, they use the Chrysler SKREEM system, which is the most user freindly TPMS setup being used. All it takes to reset is driving the vehicle for about 15 minutes at over 20 mph to reset. no crazy learn procedure (Ford is very bad about that) or special tools required..
Shouldn't have to go to the dealership for that. any competent tire dealer will have the equipment to reset the TPMS, which not only need reset with a tire installation, but also any time the tires are rotated.
You're right on target on this one. In addition to what you've stated, China is also notorious for not letting impoted vehicles to be sold in China. Subaru tries to break into the Chinese market a while back with cars that were built in their US plant, none of them were sold because the Chinese wouldn't allow them in. Last I heard, the cars that got shipped are still sitting on the docks, and the ones that are still here are being used as a windbreak fence behind the plant.
Fortunately, the N series Ford tractors are very easy to get parts for. Most parts are even still available from the dealers, which in this case would be any Case-IH-New Holland dealer (they bought out Ford/New Holland a few years ago). Farm supply stores, like Tractor Supply, are another good source for parts.
I see that the box art has the same error that the Texaco version does. They have the truck illustrated with a vent window in the doors. A '50 would not have those, as they weren't used on the 1:1 until '51.
You may want to contact the caster that made the body to find out what they suggest. I can't speak for all casters, but I do know that Modelhaus and Jimmy Flintstone resins both do very well with Superclean. Modelhaus even suggested Superclean in their instructions.
There was 2 other issues after that. It was also part of the Revell "Blacktop Warriors" series, which were a Mad Max/Post Apocalyptic style line. They were released in '01. The Honcho had 2 different issues, both essentially the same other than the box and the decals. The first issue was the "Mr. Deadwrench", and is the rarer of the 2. It was quickly dropped, and renamed the "Pink Poison" shortly after February of '01, after the events of the Daytona 500 of that year. Both versions are molded in pink.
The real question would be what are the plans for the build? Are you looking to do replica stock? Or are you after more of a late 4x4 conversion? In the case of a conversion, then the Blazer or Deserter chassis would be fine to go with. If you're looking for a stock type 4x4, then you're going to be looking at some scratchbuilding, as about the only parts from the later 4x4s that would really be usable would be the axles and perhaps the rear springs.
