    Proline 72 Chevy Long Bed Body Fitment?

    Hi Guys,

    I have the Proline 72 Chevy long bed body.

    What is the best way to fit this to the ERBE?

    I understand i will have to remove wing, but should i cut it for the bumpers, or get raised body posts?

    Thank You.

    My opinion I don't like the look in the pictures. I like a more raised look with the body. It's more realistic and look more like monster truck if that is what you want. It all in personal perspective. I would just get body mounts to raise the body. Pro-Line body mounts work great.

    Yeah ok. I personally am more a fan of the body sitting lower to get that 'truck' look. I guess it's either run without bumpers or cut some slots for them. I think I will grab the extended mounts anyway to try that look out aswell.

    I put the GMC Topkick body on mine. I used the Pro-Line Ridge-Line Bumper Wide Set and extended body mounts. Instead of cutting the body to make it all fit, picked up a Summit bumper mount for the rear bumper.

    Thanks mate. Could I possibly get some more pics of your fitment?(front,side etc). Could you link me the proline kit used please?. Also, was the summit bumper mount required or optional?

    Cheers

    Thanks mate for the extra pictures.
    I ended up ordering the Proline extended body mounts, once they arrive i will try them out and see what i like better.
