VEHICLE: RC4WD TRAIL FINDER 2
Type: 1/10-scale RTR electric 4WD scale off-road truck
Price: $459.99 (item no. Z-RTR0019)
HOP-UP: RC4WD Marlin Crawlers Front Winch Bumper
(Z-S1496) Scale trucks are all about the details and adding a scale-looking front bumper that can also support other hop-up parts is a smart buy. This is a licensed bumper made of heavy-duty steel tube and is black powder-coated for a nice finish. It will easily bolt onto the RC4WD TF2.
HOP-UP: RC4WD 1/8 Warn Zeon 10 Winch
PRICE: $69.99 (Z-E0069)
This RC4WD Warn Zeon 10 winch is an ultra- cool and functional upgrade to your TF2 pickup truck. It mounts directly on the bumper mentioned here. It is officially licensed, made of CNC machined billet aluminum, looks like the real deal and is strong enough to get your truck out of trouble when it gets stuck out on the trail.
HOP-UP: RC4WD LED Basic Lighting System
PRICE: $17.99 (Z-E0016)
The Mojave body included with the RC4WD Trail Finder 2 is molded with locations to mount functional lights; the lights are just not included. Bring your truck to life by installing this LED lighting system. It includes 12 LEDs for the headlights, fog lights, front and rear marker lights and brake lights.
