    You would need longer body posts, I believe.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I did it. I had to cut 1 inch out of the body and re-assemble it. Heres a few pics:


    The width is almost perfect... but the length is the problem. By removing essentially a strip of the body the same width as the rear windows pretty much made it the perfect length. I re-attached the 2 pieces using small strips of lexan and shoe-goo... It was strong till I sold it... in shipping the post office crushed the box and the 2 halves came apart. For daily driving I think it would have held up fine.

    The raptor body on my truck is the Jconcepts body for a 1/10 stampede.
