We wanted to make up a different, but usable Jeep rig using our CrossCanyon chassis, and we decided on a custom built AEV Brute for a mentor. The original Brute for a reference was made by AEV Motorsports.
Running on 2.2's, Olive drab painted wheels and reversed rock rings and M3 Hammer tires, we put together this Brute. Here's how it went together.
Beginning with the CrossCanyon frame, we built up the required Axial Racing parts from their ARTR crawler. This includes the bent links on the front as shown, the y upper link, the straight links in the rear, and the y upper link there also. We used the frame on the
outside of the links, and simply installed all this with some round spacers on the shock towers to accomplish a solid chassis setup ready for a gearbox. After the basic electronics were installed, the body was ready for fitment, and we began by locating the position of the scale interior on the frame.
At this time, we removed the top of the body behind the front seats, and began mapping out the side tubing rails. The tubing was made to fit the 12.45 wheelbase we set up on the frame, and the body was trimmed to fit the tubing at a later time. This body had front and rear bumpers molded into the shell, and we removed these along with the fender lips before fitting the tube work.
After the tube work was fitted to the frame using bolt on mounts, all the joints were welded and finished with black, making a very strong perimiter to secure the truck against tumbles and bangs along the trails. This truck has climbed the most severe, and been through the roughest trails, and loves every ride. One of the shop favorites.
