Instructables
This is my knex truck that can be modified in various ways. The basic truck has rear leaf spring suspension (no front suspension because of special parts but it is in the mod part of instructable), fake engine, and strong body. After the truck instructions I will have numerous mods for it from different suspension types to new bumpers. If u have ideas plz submit them and they might be inserted into the instructable. I will add more to this in weeks to come but dont expect one every week.

PLEASE POST YOUR MODS

Step 1: The engine/front end

This shows you how to build the front end, fake engine, and front axle (no suspension). Steps in order of pics

Step 2: Cab

This is the cab of the truck

Step 3: Truck bed/rear suspension

Step 4: Put it together

Connect the ends together (pretty self explanitory)

Step 5: Better Brush Guard

This makes the front end look much better

Step 6: Rear Roll Bar

This is the rear roll bar. It makes the bed look smaller, it makes it look cooler, and it will withstand some weight.

Step 8: Hidden Gun (with hopper)

This is a gun that i built to fit inside the truck with most other accesories on the truck. The hopper is from Hack124x768's pump action gun. WARNING: Will not work with the new brush guard, i'm working on an adaptor that will allow it though.U can also mount one on the drivers side of the truck if u want.

1st: Take off roof (and the rear roll bar if u have it)
2nd: follow pictures as close as possible (srry if out of order)
3rd: place rood (and rear roll bar) back on

Step 9: Prototype 4WD system (Transfer case)

I need help on this but it works like the actual transfer case on a real truck, it brings the power from the engine to the transfer (and keeps going to the rear axle), then it runs a gear that brings power to the front axle. It should be fairly simple to fiqure out how i built everything.

Diagram (I made this)
