Chuck Most

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee, lifted on Mickey Thompsons

Recommended Posts

Did this as a project for a CBP on another board- http://offroadmodels.proboards.com/thread/1475/build-memory-great-friend-larry?page=1

Here's the end result-

The front bumper is scratch built, as is much of the suspension, which I made to look like a "long arm" lift setup. The winch and hook are resin from an unknown source, and the tires are from the Revell Wrangler Rubicon, with Monogram F-250 wheels.

Basically it was just a "quick" and simple project, but it was spread out over the course of a few months as I got side tracked by other projects.

I have had a set of those F250 rims for a few years but Ive never thought about putting them in the MT tires. I bought a set of resin lockout for my tires. The Jeep looks amazing as well!

Came out looking nice Chuck! I like all of the changes you did to it! I need to get back to my Pathfinder project someday.

Really nice, clean build, Chuck. I have one of these that I picked up when they first came out; your build gives me a little inspiration for mine.

By any chance you have the decals for that Jeep....I see you didn't use them. The gold strips and badging. Just curious

Love the look of this one so high off the ground. Perfect color too.

If you would have shown me just the 2nd picture. I would have swore it was real. Dont know why, but there's just something about the 2nd picture that makes it look real life. Good work!

Real nice build! I have one of these kits still sitting in the box and had the intention of doing something like it, but you actually did it! Very nice!

It looks awesome. I have the same kit and wanted to start on it and misplaced the rear bumper for it!

I planned to drop it low into the weeds but there's a lot of suspension work to be done to do that
