    There are several to choose from, heres a few.
    I went with the pro line PF-8.

    The scalpel makes for a nice look as well.

    Are there any truck bodies?

    And would the '13 dodge Ram body work, maybe with some modification

    I really do like how that proline pf -8 looks though, I have a roller I just may make into a road car. What do I need other than some g-locs and a body?

    You need to extend the wheel track.
    I used the pro track system, remember its an 1/8 scale body.

    Their a bit hard to see but the tekno extend dog bones and pro track arms worked perfect with ofna tread belted tires.
    You can see the pinion because its a 27 tooth and I had to do some modifying to get it in there with the 36 tooth spur.

    Wait a minute. You mean the rpm a arms, trx/strc turnbucle won't transfer over from my Rustler the the Slash LCG chassis? In other words, Tha arms and turnbuckle I have on my Rustler will be too narrow for gt8 bodies?


    And where did you get that brace. Love it

    I really know little about the rustler or its wheel track.
    All I can say is with the stock slash arms the tires would be further under the body.
    Those are all lundford titanium camber and steering rods.
    I think the pro track arms are about 10mm longer, this would widen the wheel track 20mm.
    Don't quote me on those numbers, I haven't measured them but their definitely longer.

    I picked up the roll bar at my lhs, they carry all the Hot racing stuff, also flm, strc, vanquish, rc4wd, traxxas new era and any kind of 4wd crawler stuff you could think of, all the fancy aluminum mods.
    I've never seen a lhs with their kind of stock
