ok so I have had my trekker for several months now and have been kinda playing with it trying to figure out what I want to do with it. I cant ever leave anything alone so currently it is sitting as crawlerx blade smc 5.5 which I am likeing alot the issue is i cant figure out what to do for a body.....

i was digging the raptor body the only issue is that it rubs just a bit, so i would have to open the wheel wells up, i had to do the same with the fj so i could get them on the chassis as low as possible... I was thinking of picking up one of those usa-1 models or a raminator to see what kind of fitment ide get out of those

I dig the FJ also.

Could you give me a width measurement of that raptor body?

For a crawler go with the FJ. Where can I find one of those Raptor bodies? Does that fake engine on the hood come off easy?
