Lego Jeep wrangler technic 42029 C-model

I use only parts from lego 42029, since I only have this set at the time.It might not be perfect, but with limited parts this is the best I can made out of it. 
It is an easy modification, it has the same chassis as A-model but shortened. 
same gearing mechanism as well, but back tipping mechanism was not use.
I think, by refer the the photo and video below you should be able to replicate the model.

Lego 42029 Customized Pick up Truck

I always wanted a lego technic model and finally I got this as my first model, so I am making a full piece by piece build video of it.

It think it takes a longer then usual time for me to build it.
so Thanks for watching :-)

By the way, I don't think I'm going to build the model B, cause it just plain ugly. But I will try to design another model with just the parts.

unboxing and build video below:

Thanks for Watching.
