If you are talking about the 11.3" wheelbase body, then it might be a bit too close for rear wheels to have any kind of travel. I have mine at 12" and the shock is already leaning backward.

Thank you that was the one I was looking at, glad I didn't order it.

Actually I apologize I was thinking of getting the 4 door one which I think is larger, hopefully it fits.

did you paint the side panel white with chrome? is it a decal? On the C10

I didn't make it far with that body. Too many things didn't pan out the way I wanted so I switched to a ProLine JKU body designed for the Summit/Revo. It fit like a glove and gave several benefits over stock. I'll post pics later today once I finish putting on the decals. Just got it back from my painter.

First (and bad) photos with the cherokee 2.0 body.



Itīs not fitted, only put on the chasis.



I need to short the WB and see if the inner fenders fit with this new body.



It has some more details than the one from Asiatees, like the rubber windscreen wipers(front and rear) or the gills(I donīt know how it is called this part in english) in the hood



the fenders are included



and also this interior



the light glasses are prepainted. It comes, of course, with the rest of the windows glasses, the door handle and the mirrors.


My BIG BIG DOUBT is which color combination should I take. Suggestions are welcome


Hope you like it.

My new Jeep JKU body. This was the first rc body I ever painted and I think it came out pretty good, just need some aftermarket bumpers since there's a gap between the body and stock ones .

I think this G4x4^2 body has a lot of potential for a build (especially considering the 1:1 version has portal axles and selectable locking diffs)

https://www.asiatees.com/article?%5B...d-Body&id=3020

Should (in theory) match up with the 312mm wheelbase position fairly well, although it is a bit on the heavy side

Axial RTR Rubicon body. Been recycling this body on trucks for a while. Just stuck axial body posts in the TRX4 post holes and they line up perfectly with the stock drilled body holes. Real easy...

Nice! Very good to know about the body posts. Smart on Traxxas part to bake in the compatibility with the SCX 10 (same with the bumpers). The folks at vatera could learn a thing or two from them

Just wondering if anyone has tried to mount a hard body to the trx yet?

Finally I put the cherokee body...



But I also painted an original clear body:



that I like more, I still can use the inner fenders to keep the inside clean and in case of any accident the lexan body wonīt suffer any damage because of the exo cage.

I am not sure if I choose the right color... The best thing are the clear windows

I like the paint job you did on the original - the blacked-out sections look great, add a unique look.

Hard to do with white, but some other color on the interior could add a finishing touch.

To keep the white from being darkened, though..... not sure - maybe silver or light gray?
