I finished my TRX-4 kit with an Axial Honcho cab and cage. I was able to keep the fenders after some trimming. I only had to take the corners off the front fenders. The back required a notch to let the cage sit low enough.

After I removed the rear body posts, I cut holes for the shock mounts to poke through the tray and replaced the cross brace which is fastened with split pins - I think it worked quite well!

I also had to remove the battery tray and use a short pack in the front battery location.

The body colour is a full can of PS-43 Translucent Orange backed with some PS-41 Bright Silver which gives it a metallic look. I added the black stripes to give some extra detail. The tray is PS-5 Black with PS-55 Flat Clear for a matt finish.

Just finished up fitting and painting this Ford Body. I was going to do a yota body but there's more of those than these and it would have been predictable since I DD a Tacoma. Always liked the old Fords anyways. I Raised the sliders and bumped the wheelbase out to a perfect 13 inches. Flipped rear bumper mount and did a comp cut variation to tuck rear bumper into body. Limited front suspension travel a little which seemed to help with stability while flexing up an obstacle alot. Going to add a small stinger up front and then start working on a battery relocation

I'm working on a few ideas for that These proline bodies don't seem nearly as durable as the defender body, so I'm really apprehensive about putting lights on top or creating weak spots by creating holes for the wires.

Here is my take on proline jeep body, I really like it much more with smaller tires. These are class1 4.19 hyrax 36mm wide. I measured the scale of this proline body and it is around 9.1:1 .So those tires would be somethong like 38"x13" on the real stuff.

This looks a lot like the TRX4 tactical body. Cool idea to modify the tactical
