MOD version 2 of Nico71's Jeep
I wanted to visit this model again to modify some of my whishes into this beautiful design. It now has 4 motor inside and lights. The additions: 1) added a motorized switch for the gearbox. 2) added doors (like landrover of Sheepo 3) added loading doors at the back 4) added a HOG and switch to select the steering mode 5) a motorized winch I could not add a motorized switch for the steering because I am out of motors and lack the space for it.
About this creation
This model (bodywork) is 2 studs wider then the orginal version of Nico







Build in door that can be opened (Sheepo's doors like the one he used on his defender

Doors have a lock/unlock mechanism on the 2 doors



2 speed gearbox controlled by M-motor (on the left side), in neutral the Jeep can be played in manual mode

Used a wormwheel in the gear switching....



the m-motor on the right side is used for steering and I placed a switch so the HOG can also steer the Jeep in manual mode

Gear for switching the gearbox (2:1 or 4:1 gear ratio)




For the steering switch I still am looking for a way to motorize this switching....

Manual steering

Added later the 4th motor for the winch

Used Nico his Trial Crawler wheel connections idea to make this more stiff and robust





Below the bodywork......

Hi George, Thanks for your comment. I managed to add the 4th motor in (uploaded a picture) for the winch. I do not have an other motor for the steering.....
Quoting George Staples The shifter design looks great! I also think the rear end looks sturdy. Good luck on finding a spot for the whinch, it looks cramped in there.

Very nice looks good and the functions are awesome. I have a suggestion to motorize the steering switch. You would have to move the steering motor back 3 or 4 studs and slightly adjust the steering gearbox (not being able to see it in person I'm not sure how) so that when you switch the transmission to neutral the steering switches to manual. The downside to this is you won't be able to pop the jeep in neutral on a hill and still steer. Just a suggestion you can send more detailed photos of the mechanism to eulb97@gmail.com. --John Daniels

I own a 82 CJ-7. I would love to see a video of it in action. Well done.

Looks immensely sturdy! Especially that rear axle. I like the doors and other opening bits, too.
