Default Ford Bronco Body

I am trying to identify the body,front bumper,front grill and rock sliders. I believe the body is from JConcepts. The front grill looks like it's printed but can't tell. I came across 1 picture through a Google search for Bronco body. I am unable to get any information on anything in the picture. Who ever built it did an awesome job and would like to congratulate them on the build
Mysterious build


JConcepts body for reference

Looks like a real 1:1 to me.

I'm pretty sure that body was made by Ford....

If its an RC truck, it's ridiculously well done.

The top photo is a real 1:1 Bronco.

The bottom photo is an RC. Bumper looks like the one from the Vaterra Ascender. That does look like the JConcepts Bronco body. The Vaterra Ford Bronco is nicer, but it may or may not have a different wheelbase.

The more I was looking at it I was thinking the same thing too. Then I seen the JC body and looks like it almost had same body lines. I have seen some crazy builds that make you stop and wonder which way it is 1:1 or RC.

Thanks the help

I just recently got a used Ascender with Bronco body. To me I think the JC body looks a little better to me. It is in need of a printed bumper. I would like to see them side by side to make a final decision.

The Jconcepts body looks like the windshield is chopped. The proline bronco body has better proportions

I tell you what, I had to look at this on my laptop to be able to see it was an actual Bronco, wish they made an R/C body that nice!

The number of bolts on the bead lock rings gives it away.

Also the shock, steering stabilizer, and the way the hook is hanging there.
