Default Square Body Chevy from JConcepts

Anyone thinking of picking on of these up? Seem to be alot of love for the C10 + K10 trucks lately.

I'm hoping Pro-Line follows up the SCT '84 Ram body with a crawler version. Then a big decision will have to be made.

Definitely getting one for a different look on my smt10. As far as Proline and Gen 1 Dodge bodies...they don't look good at all. I drive one everyday so I guess I'm more picky.

Check out RC Nerds on Facebook they have a 3D front grill and other accessories might help you enjoy your proline products more than a sticker grill. If not it was worth a try.

I run the JConcepts early 80’s F150 body on my Ascender. I think its a great looking representation. The brown K10 in the link would look good next to it. The design is consistent.

No because I'm not a fan of JConcepts scaler bodies. They just lack detail in my experience. I love their racing bodies.

Am I the only one that finds it odd that the truck appears to have Pit Bull tires in those photos? Or are they something new coming from JConcepts?

Those tires say "J-concepts" on the sidewall... Intresting new tire maybe?
The Body looks good imo and they really do put in a lot of detail for a Lexan body. The problem is others have released molded grills and that is the expectation now....

I kinda thought I saw the JConcepts logo, but I wasn't sure. I'm way more interested in these tires!

Knowing JConcepts the front of this body is just flat and without details so you can install the grille sticker. I hope that's not the case.

There is something that gets thrown out of proportion when they try to fit the long bed version of the 1:1 truck onto a 12.3 inch wheelbase. You end up with something oddly small looking for such a big truck but with wheel wells to clear disproportionately large tires. I think a short bed version would have scaled to the 12.3 inch wheelbase better.

Pretty much all scaler bodies from JConcepts seem to have proportional problems.
