    1/16th truck bodies, need help...

    im sure this has been done a hundered times, but i want to see whats out there currently on the market, maybe you guys find stuff i cant...

    no offense to anyone but i dislike the revo/merv bodies.... and ive looked for just a standard 1/16th scale truck body and am hard pressed to find one i like that i know will fit, ive found a few you can paint yourself but im not big on dumping alot into a body esp if i screw the paint up ill have to acetone the body and redo it later if it doesnt hold up

    i just want like a ford super duty, or nice jeep body, like the hpi jeep rubicon for the savage/tmaxx, anyhting like this but 1/16th would be nice....

    i just got the traxxas 4911x for my maxx and love it.... im not big on flames usually but it looks killer... wish i could get that for my merv
    Traxxas is good, but so are other Manus

    i know ther is a jeep cherokee body and also a blazer body that pro-line makes that fits onto the 1/16 platform. it is actually for an 1/18th scale crawler.

    also, exotek makes a hummer h3 body for the merv

    and there is the proline f150 raptor body, also there is the stock slash body as well

    HPI released a Wrangler Rubicon for their savage xs, which is bigger than the merv. It might work.
