Re: what other bodies have you guys been running?
 
Im running the Proline 4runner im at work so no pics at the moment here is how i shortened the wb: I made 2 sets of front Lower links first set was 3/32" brass rod (which gained no weight) then I made a set out of 1/4" brass rod ( which doubled the link weight) Installed the 1/4" on the front lower. I then used the stock front lowers on the rear and the 3/32 brass on the rear upper. The uppers and lowers on the rear are the same size. but that will put you dead nuts on 12.3" i also moved the rear shock towers fwd and used the plastic piece included in the bag to keep stock mounting holes"thumbsup"

Re: what other bodies have you guys been running?

Does anyone know who bought the new bright trailcat and started the post about running the on their trx? Pretty sure it didn't work out but the frustrating thing is I was looking at the thread last night and cannot find it after looking and searching. Thanks

Are you saying there's more than 1 mount setting or mounts can be moved on rails?

A couple looks I've ran. Trimmed Ascender body and a Comanche body I bought for $5 at lhs. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...405fd1887d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...3a726b6e50.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...09a75cd0db.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...1cfcc24481.jpg

I am a Ford guy, so when I saw this body, I had to give it a shot. Proline 66 F100 for the T Maxx. I think it turned out alright. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...8db6ddc5a3.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c7d71c4060.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...8281a6ced5.jpg

Started off with the full Hilux body and now ended up with the axial bed cage. This is my first go around so itís still a work in progress. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c774882c13.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c2035f218b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...50c787167.heic

Looks great! Try swapping the front and rear bumper supports, keep them flipped. this will raise the front bumper/ lower the rear. This will allow you to drop the rear bed cage. Then space up your sliders. I used 2 revo ball ends stacked, and longer screws...

Thanks. I removed the piece that locks the battery in last night because that was holding the cage up really high like in these pics. I'll swap the bumper supports around now too.

solo1, Where did you get the shorter suspension links to run this body? And how long are they?

Used the 100mm front links top and bottom in rear. Had to thread 1 end of each 5 mm more then cut them to 95 mm overall length. This gives 295 mm wheelbase

Dude that looks awesome I've definitely seen Jeeps in that color IRL too. Does it have the spare on the back or are you leaving that off?
