[MOC] 4x4 Crawler with winch- based on 1960/70 pickups

Recommended Posts

My latest MOC, the 4x4 crawler! This was modeled off some 1960/70 pickups, hence it’s boxy look. The goal was to have a powerful drive and a winch, with a release like in 42069 so it can be pulled by hand then engaged. I am happy to say that these goals have been achieved. In the video, the crawler has no trouble driving on ice and frozen grass, and I also made a course out of books to test the crawler indoors. When driving outside, the temperature was -2C. The crawler is powered by 2 L motors, steering by a servo motor as well as engine and winch controlled by M motors. Video:

Thank you so much for watching and reading! Looking forward to your comments!

Definitely like a body pickup. Now you need a pickup line... :laugh:

Looks nice, I normally don't like boxy cars but it works here. But why the friction pins at the steering module? Doesn't that give unwanted friction? I'm sure it's negligible, but it's not how I would have done it and it seems easy enough to fix :wink:

Model looks nice, association with 60s and 70s is achieved :thumbup:

I wanted to make it so that the gear ratios at the motors could be easily changed, and to do so the least to do is to remove the hubs. That didn't work but I didn't bother changing the pins because there's no difference.

Thank a lot! Glad you think I achieved the look.

Amazing MOC! :wub:

I love to see the working fake engine while the wheels are running!

Thanks! The engine is one of my favorite parts too :classic:
