Traxxas TRX-4M Ford F-150 High Trail Edition

Traxxas TRX-4M Ford F-150 High Trail Edition

The Traxxas TRX-4M lineup continues to grow, thanks to the addition of the TRX-4M Ford F-150 High Trail Edition. This new truck marks the second “High Trail” edition rig to join the TRX-4M family, adding more old-school flair for fans of small-scale crawlers.

Scaling the F-150 body down to 1/18-scale, you’ll find plenty of detail on this rig from bumper to bumper. Available in brown, blue, and black, the TRX-4M Ford F-150 High Trail includes chrome-plated details like the grille, door handles, side mirrors, rollbar, and bumpers.

Not much has changed under the body, as the TRX-4M Ford F-150 High Trail Edition uses a ladder frame, a four-link suspension setup, a 180-size 87T brushed motor, and a 2S LiPo battery. Like it’s old-school pickup truck partner, this rig features a longer wheelbase (162mm/6.4in) compared to the TRX-4M Bronco and Defender (155mm/6.10in).

A 1/18-scale Long Arm Lift Kit is pre-installed to give this truck a lifted visual look and help improve ground clearance. Also assisting with the increased ground clearance are this rig’s larger 2.4″ (outer diameter) tires. Finally, chrome-plated multi-hole wheels cap off the classic appearance of this truck.
