We love trolling the internet to see what cool projects people are working on and new places to explore in 4WD. Last week we came across this forum posting on rccrawler.com of a 1/9th scale replica build of the Zone Jeep Comanche MJ. From the Graphics and paint, to bumpers and roll cage, this mini-me creation is taking coming together to mimic it’s big brother. Matt McDaniel from New Mexico is taking on the project and we’re excited to see how it turns out. We’ll post up photos of the finished rig, or follow along with the build up thread
The Zone Offroad Chevy 2500HD 6″ lift is featured in the February issue of 8-lug magazine. Check it out.
After the addition of Iron Bull bumpers and a Warn 16,000lb winch the front of the Zone truck was lets just say… lacking. The factory coils are not meant to handle this kind of punishment, so a coil upgrade was in order. There are not a lot of easy direct swaps, so we ordered up some Fox coilovers and Eibach 700 lb/in coils. We had to cut apart a factory strut to steal the lower bushing assembly. We want the factory style lower mount because this gives the best long term reliability. The upper mount was left with the COM bearing
