I've been waiting for that JP1 body forever. I've got a few chassis I wanted to try it on, and was even contemplating removing my Hilux SR5 body from my older CFX-W for it.

Same here - the tip-off was when the kit was first teased, MST actually stated publicly that they did not plan to release the body separate until the vehicle had been out for a while.

I was just sittin' here, wondering all along what "a while" was going to end up being!

I know many people here on the forum are very tired of Jeep bodies - but to me it was always WHICH Jeep body...

Now - of course, it's been finally released and I don't yet have the funds to pick up another entire chassis and body.

I still have another build to do - need to assemble the chassis, pick up another set of trailing arms, a few MIP driveline bits (I have the actual shafts) and then bolt my built axles and transmission/skid assembly together, solder up my electronics and mount them, and finally trim and paint the bodies... (I'll have 2 interchangeable).

I'm somewhat lacking motivation at the moment as our oppressive summer heat is finally here.

Of course, that should mean I'm hiding inside with the A/C on, building something!

I have not tried that yet, but Element did add molded in lines on each fender to use as a guide to trim them for different bodies.

damn it I knew I forgot something in the order, the wheel arch on the JP1 body are high thought I'm not sure if they would have played well together anyhow, may have to homebrew some.

Thats coming up this weekend. Ive cut out the front inners, and rough trimmed the body. Need to set posts in and final trim the body, then see what the fenders need. The Comanche body is narrow, sliders are already way in.

i need to see if i can move the sliders forward on the rails about 3/4". maybe drill new holes? kinda don't want to swiss cheese my frame though.

still trying to decide if i want to run the RTR body (with knight's dodge grill and axial honcho cage) or go for the truggy forduro…?

I just did that last night and posted up in my build thread, it might be closer to 1/2"-5/8", only holes that needed drilling were on the side trays, none in the frame

Another thing will be the inner fenders, mounts to the sliders, might still fit with a redrill?

Good point Mike, I just measured how much I moved my side trays and sliders (using the existing holes linked above) and its 13mm or about a 1/2".

Looking at the inner fenders there is a flat spot where they mount and it looks to be just big enough to poke a few more holes still on this flat spot.

Here is my 46 Power Wagon painted and mounted. This body really lends itself to this chassis!

Looks great!

I'll bet the Mog was too short...

I've always liked the Honcho front bumper, as well.
