It’s really scaled out even has opening doors and tailgate , independent front suspension and solid rear axle with leaf springs in rear

Been slowly adding details added the Rugged Radios decals and stripes . Got the idea for the stripes from the real Shelby Raptor . Next step is gonna be painting the wheels . What do you all think should I
A- stick with black and just paint the beadlock rings silver
B- go all silver
C- go all white or
D- go with other suggestions ( add your suggestions below )

Just added even some more details . I switched out the “ HERO “ logo for the actual FORD logo . The company that makes the truck would have had to charge even more money to have it licensed by Ford so they made the grill logo say “ HERO “ instead but there is another company that does 3D printing and they make the FORD logo

Added some more details a fire extinguisher , spare driveshaft , tow rope and fuel can . The extinguisher is store bought but the fuel can is made out of an Ambolsol jar , some vinyl tape , rc fuel tubing and and old rc battery strap . The spare driveshaft is out of another rc that I no longer have and the tow rope is just a shoestring with some black tape to make the loops .

nice build, like standard trucker hat style, flatbill not allowed!, is the fuel container ' carb' compliant?
