Scissors and not much of it either. Body is already ideal size. I would cut the center of bed. Cut cab back panel to fit cage for desired look and dove the bedsides.

It's just that I haven't seen anyone fit a body of any description on a Capra yet. I know the Capra's not designed for that (no frame rails or anything) so I would anticipate some hurdles. That said, we're an inventive group here.

Shouldn't be hard to cut up for the Capra, just plan on lots of test fitting. I've seen a Power Wagon made to fit the Capra before.

This thread made me think of some dude on FB graciously offering his service to cut any body to fit the Capra for $50 + the cost of the body because using scissors is so difficult.

I imagine it would involve removing some of the upper cage, without compromising structural integrity. Probably have to fab some replacement bars, which I am definitely not afraid to do. I even own ACTUAL LEXAN CUTTING SCISSORS from a real hobby store.

I sat my BogHog on my Capra.

Little trimming and it would fit like a glove.

It looks wicked! 😈

After setting the BH body on my Capra, I planned on ordering another BH body.

Now, Iíll just order a Creep. Might even do a similar pain scheme. 👍🏼
