Purists might want to look the other way with this one. It’s a mix of 76, 77 & 78 stylings with a modern vibe and a twin-turbo powerplant from its arch-rival.
This is unbranded so I hope to see it on consoles soon.
We took this one down to bare steel with tons of modifications. The fuel doors, tailgate latch, and trim were shaved. The back of the bed has been tucked, the bumpers were smoothed, the fenders were cut… you get the idea.
The truck follows the TrailRunner Spec Parts & Tunes from my previous build. It’s a great OP-ish power-to-control ratio.
Addons include a TrailRunner Package, Tire Carrier, Hoods, Fender Flares, Chrome or Black Bumpers, and Grills along with some other goodies.
There are 10 Tire options. 5 different wheel styles and each one has a matching rim on the tire carrier.
If you hate the fender flares they’re an addon so they can be removed. Just run it with the classic rock crawler style cutout fenders (aka poor man's lift). There’s a Mild & Wild version for the flares too.
Note, the Stock Rear Bumper can be removed leaving you with just the off-road tube bumper.
The rear license plate is hiding the tow hitch and can be removed/added for the public roads.
This truck is on the same custom ‘skateboard chassis’ (a swappable platform like Teslas use) as my previous build (just stretched a bit), so I can spend more time making cool trucks, and less time rigging suspension.
The truck has a completely new engine and twin-turbo setup too.
Speed Tune Disclaimer: The Pin it to Win it Tune & Speedy Gonzales Trans are strictly meant for bashing and honing the truck. These are in no way intended for normal gameplay.
This truck has a super-soft suspension so it’s pretty much worthless for towing unless you use the specific towing suspension. There is an addon of a standard hitch and gooseneck option for the [IR] Gooseneck Trailer Pack. (Thanks IR)
Pro Tip: Pin it, and hold the turns longer than you typically would in SR to kick the back end out and power-slide turns. Also, all my transmissions have a High Gear if you need a bit more speed.
This is a work in progress so there might be some changes along the way.
Credits: Thanks to BigDubz for his Baja Claw and Irok tire. Truck model TurboSquid. Engine and Turbo setups CGTrader. Other tires CGTrader and Sketchup. Some of the wheel centers, LED lights, and other misc parts that weren’t made by me started life as CAD conversions from GrabCAD, so a massive thanks to all of those artists for sharing their creations.
Finally thank you to all the map makers for making all these amazing places for us to abuse our trucks.
See ya on the trail…
BTW…It should go without saying but please do not steal or reupload any of my mods or assets. Thanks and have a nice day.
