    Hey everyone, I think this is a fantastic thread however it seems like many of the links in the original post don't work anymore. Is there a newer thread or site that has similar type information on it (i.e. 'go-to' durable and pre-painted bodies by brand that fit the best of the 4x4 Stampede)? I'm beginning to explore what bodies I should look at next and have found that the quality and durability of various bodies vary quite extensively. Also, what are people's experience with roll cages for the Stampede 4x4? Is it worth it or ends up adding weight and doesn't really provide much benefit?

    I need to find one of the new Bigfoot bodies. Hopefully proline comes out with one soon. I love that body style on an f-150

    You can get the grill & other chrome pieces separately.

    Or get it already painted with all the accessories

    This is an EXCELLENT direct fit quality pre-painted body for the Stampede. It's only $19.99 shipped and look great and fits perfectly! Very sturdy lexan body. I am very happy with it.

    *** is the deal with lexan 0.06 body prices? 25 dollars...are we smoking crack here? I am a chemical engineer by training and thats about 40 cents of lexan injected into a sub 10K mold...Why has Proline/Jconcepts and Traxxas have us held hostage?

    More money for a painted Proline body than a 4S SPC 5000 LIPO?

    This is absolutely thievery in the first degree when they claim Traxxas parts are inexpensive but its 25 dollars for one ounce of lexan injection molded. I have a good friend that owns a plastics company and will look into how much for a 0.10 Lexan body mold and flood the zone with 15 dollar painted bodies, prototyped in the US and mfg in China.

    Bad enough they stick you with a NiMH POS battery when you pay near 400 for a Pede 4x4 VXL...but 25 for a clear body and 71 for a painted Proline.

    INSANE.

    End of rant.
    What ever happened with the flooding of the market for 15.00 bodies? Have a link yet?

    Longshot question, I know, but has anyone tried to fit an associated Trophy Rat body on a 2wd Stampede? For $20 I might have to chance it and see how it goes. Don't see why it wouldnt with the traxxas adjustable body mounts on. I wanna give it a Mad Max Warboys paint job so I can ride eternal, shiny and chrome. This thing totally looks the part.

    Save your money for now. The wheelbase on that Trophy Rat is going to be about 2” longer than your Stampede. It won’t fit.

    Thanks bud, I actually just saw that on the offical associated site myself. The site I originally saw the specs on that truck were wrong and said 10".
    Good looking out. Shame, it would have been a perfect body for the "application"

    Anyone know some decent old muscle car or hotrod style bodies that will fit the Stamp? I found a few on rc kings that have a 10.5" wheelbase and that`s the closest I've been able to find but I have no idea how good their bodies are. Might be able to fit one with the adjustable mounts and inventive trimming though.
    I'd like to give my truck a mad max look with a warboys paint job, so body modification/trimming would just look even more the part. I would have loved to use the proline rat rod or the associated trophy rat but they are just too big wheelbase-wise.

    Any suggestions?

    This is a great thread. I just got a Stampede 4x4 and have been looking for better bodies. Specifically looking for a Short course truck body. I have a Slash 4x4 HCG that I'm getting rid because I like the way the Stampeded handles and jumps so much better, but I love the look of the Slash body. Anyone know of any Short course truck bodies that would fit the Stampede?
