i know i've said it before, but that body is "U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi, you're ugly, yeah, you're ugly." the chassis looks sweet though, looks scale and sturdy enough to be fun....might still have to get one...

Umm...No . I will admit it's not the nicest body I've ever seen but I refuse to sing a song about it...But it would be pretty easy to change the body on it.

Yeah If I bought that kit which I won't. First thing I would do is toss the body in the garbage or cut it up for scrap and look for something else. Even a beetle is better then that shell.

Then find wheels that are more original.

I would be surprised if they dont include their 1.9 beadlocks with it. Would be nice to see them include their own real axle with harder gears as well. Will have to wait and see when this thing is done. The body is not the greatest I do have to agree, but it might be pretty hard to find another that will fit is.

It would be easy if they planned ahead and made the wheelbase adjustable and the track width somewhat close to that of most bodies on the market.

Besides the body it looks good. Hey, if they build a good truck and do right by the people who pre-ordered months ago, good for them. And good for the hobby.

it looks just as flat and disproportionate as the real thing. paint some bigger headlights on it and some graphics and bam. only seeing pictures of plain white ones and some with a few jazzy colors doesnt do anything for the look. paint the real thing white and its just as boxy and weird looking.

i dont mind the body at all, i have seen plenty worse things that people loved. its just seems to be so easy to harp on this one.
