Further Description/Back Story I started building this truck to have a nice backpack sized trail truck for any time I’m traveling around. The TRX4M platform is a perfect choice for something like that, and I just needed a few things to get it where I wanted it. At least that’s what I thought at first, but clearly I got a little bit carried away. Then, I wanted to make it a little more unique so I decided the remove all the accessories from the body and just have a clean and slightly more classic Defender look to it. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!
