This is a fairly small, functional GMC Sierra HD.
About this creation
This is a relatively small truck, and has several motorized functions.
I think it looks quite good, and all the functions work well.
Aesthetics: I think the truck looks pretty good, but is pretty boxy, as a truck should be. The front doors open, as does the hood and tailgate. There are LED headlights, and a GMC logo on the front. This is also my first pickup with rear double wheels, and as such has the protrusions coming from the side.















I put the equipment from the Extreme Adventure set in the bed, even though it is too big for the scale.









Add-ons: I also built two different bed covers, the flat black one, and the big one that looks like an extended cab.













Suspension: The vehicle has full live-axle suspension, and it uses flex-axles in the rear as leaf springs.







Steering:
The model has a Servo-motor attached to the front live axle to steer the wheels. A couple CV joints and a couple gears connect it to the working steering wheel.

Drive: The model has four wheel drive and a V8 piston engine driven by two XL motors.



Gearbox:
The model has a four-speed sequential gearbox controlled by a PF M-motor with a speed indicator.







Transfer case: The model has a two-speed transfer case, to give the model four high and four low gears. It is controlled by a PF M-motor

Frame: This truck has the best chassis I have ever developed, as I always sorta thought it was pointless. Well, it turns out that there is definitely a point to having a tough frame, so it will likely become my new standard.

I was quite happy with this model, which had strong looks and functionality. However, performance left something to be desired.

Quoting Technic Man You'll see 8070 is a very good set. And has many red parts as well. ;)
Yeah, the red was a major buying factor for me. I will still want to buy some 5x11 panels, though, as my models are usually quite spacefilling.

Quoting Technic Man Very nice! About chassis strength, the 8070 Technic Supercar is a nice car to study the chassis as it is very robust. The bodywork isn't as strong though. I'm saying this because that chassis doesn't use those frames to gain strength, only liftarms.
Wow! I literally ordered that exact set not five minutes ago! Thanks!
