    Stock bodies dont fit!!!!

    I have a Jato 3.3. The stock body doesnt fit on the body mount studs. If you place it on the front body mount pegs, the rear holes in the body are about 1/4 inch past the mounting studs. Bought a new stock body, same issue. Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.

    Check if your chassis is twisted/crooked or not.
    check the same with your shock towers and body mounts.

    The chassis appears to be level. I removed the towers and put them back on. Still nothing.

    Your problem isn't coming from the bodies.
    I'm sure you have to check with attention shock towers, body posts, chassis, front bulkhead, trans case,...everything that could be twisted.

    Last time I had exactly the same problem it was coming from a twisted chassis:
