hillbilly's LOW RANGE inspired cab swapped bronco

First off this is my first scale project, so I hope I do it justice. Lol

After getting my rgt and finding out its a barrage clone. I was going to build it with the early bronco body that came with it. Doing my research for inspiration I realized that there are a ton of early bronco builds which was kinda off putting to me. Then the search for something different I liked the rj speed scrambler body since I was looking for bodies for swb. Which has a short wheel base versus stock so it would be more of a stretched scrambler. (Still like the idea) but no real inspiration out there I could find. Then hard body came to mind for scale and I found the tamyia Blackfoot body
More research there are builds but not many which I liked. Then found my inspiration.

I came across this what I thought was a f-150. But found out looking for more pictures it’s a 88 bronco with a f250 cab and shortened bed. Also research lead me back here (rcc) and it’s a members 1:1 rig. So I sent a pm his (LOW RANGE) way asking if he would mind if I build a loosely scale version of his rig. Which he was all for it and also sent my a link to my pics of all the work he has done to it.
I searched for a Blackfoot body not a easy task for my cheap a$$, but found one after a couple months for about half of most I found.

So here we are, parts list
Red cat everest 10 axles full of axial parts
Rgt chassis
Shocks ?
Forward motor with scx10 transfer
T-case
Leaf spring rear/ 4 link front
Cms
1.7 iroks on 1.9 wheels
And found out with a little work scx10 bumper mounts work with the rgt chassis. Some other goodies

A link to my first thoughts and other things with the rgt.
