For Many years, I have been trying to build a Lego truck that had front and rear suspension.
Hear is my fifth attempt at it!
I also love taking unnecessary pictures!!! (warning)
About this creation
I tried to show how the steering worked, but I am afraid that the picture may not have been at the best angle...
This picture is the bottom of the front axle.
This is the back axle. I tried to incorporate a kind of pendular suspension into it. The back suspension works well but does not have the best travel (although it has the most mileage on it!!!). The front axle turned out to have this really weird leaf spring/pendular suspension "thing".
Here I tried to show the red lights below the plates covering a motor and some other wiring. When I turn on the red lights, orange running lights come on at the front.
I tried to show the orange lights here. Ok.... Fine, I will be honest... :/ I just took the picture for the fun of it.
I wasn't sure if I should post this or not, because it isn't exactly the easiest to understand... :/ I added some lights on top of the cab, as well as some white lights below the front bumper. And for you pessimistic crowd, when the battery box runs out of "battery", the lights DO NOT explode.
Overall, The truck is not that bad off road, the suspension works enough, and the cab is home to lots and lots of wiring!
Yet again for the pessimistic crowd... no. none of the tires have popped yet, and the battery's only run out every time my brother uses it. :O I also forgot to mention that every time my sister uses it, a gear comes out and a Lego piece falls off.

Love it. All those hours of Legos have paid off in a very impressive way. I knew you could do it.LOL
Thank you for those kind words. This is still a work in progress, as there is always room for improvement. Currently, I am trying to build a plow, but all the prototypes are too heavy. All my friends think it looks like a Land Rover Defender. Maybe that is what I should call it. Oops, I forgot that this is not 4x4... It's a 2x4. Gotta change the title again... :/
