    Yes sir!

    I had to buy some hex adapters for the wheels to get them to fit the axles properly, they were a bit wobbly before.

    I’ve also discovered something that previously I didn’t know existed, a solution to a problem I’ve been grappling with for a while, namely a strong, reliable way of attaching the steering wheel to a servo.

    The answer, enter the servo shaft coupler:- https://www.proto-pic.co.uk/servo-shaft-coupler-hitec-standard.html?gclid=CNeKy4LDgM8CFQ4TGwodVhEDoQ

    I bet you all knew and just didn’t tell me ::doh::

    Never actually seen one of those couplers before, good idea though for scale guys wanting a turning wheel.
    I’ve just ordered one of these bodies, not sure if I’m going to use it yet or not though, might be shelved for future use lol.

    Very well, I may raise her a little but I don’t want to encourage roll overs too much. I’m just posting some video footage to the group Facebook page.

    Just watched it. You’re REALLY good behind a camera :jawdrop: So now that it’s done, how do you feel about the JK on a GCM Skeleton J2?

    That really does look superb. One of the nicest builds of a JK I’ve seen. The tyres really suit it, spot on!

    Thank you! It’s a nice kit, I almost like Jeeps now, I want to go to Moab and drive one :-)
