Further Description/Back Story My goal was to build a ‘go anywhere’ logging truck. It’s a 6×6 with a two speed transmission, locking transfer case and locking axles. The chassis is an RC4WD Overland with the front axle moved 1” forward. The logging frame and trailer were built from steel and aluminum channel and Cross RC and Lesu parts. The truck is 1/14” scale and it hauls 30 pounds longs with no problem.
