Alternative model for the 8081. A real pickup truck.
About this creation
I really like this model 8081 Extreme Cruiser. For me another success in the row of great Technic Lego cars. The size, scale and dimensions are perfect and this car suits all kind of alternatives.
This pickup is made with the same pieces so nothing added. I made the coach 2 studs shorter and moved the HOG to the front as well. In order to have the dimensions correct I placed the roof 1 stud higher.
Next one I have in mind is more a Navigator like model based on the 8081 not an alternative model.
@ MortalSwordsman, I did a LOT of research, and a much better investment in sets is the Supercar (http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Supercar-8070) because, 1.It has a better parts to price ratio, 2. It has better suspension parts and, 3. It has MANY more parts. That is it.
