    MERV body options

    What are some nice fitting body's for the MERV? I just hate the stock body and that wing. I plan on useing the 1/16 Summit wheels, I would also like a raptor body, But i dont want to paint a body. But if i have to i will. But do you guys know of some cool bodys for the MERV?

    The F150 Raptor body from Proline isnt a very good fit if you plan on running stock wheels. It rubs and catches the front tires while turning. I will be running offset wheels with this body.
    Here it is with stock wheels:

    i like proline, but their raptor body is trash

    it doesnt fit well, and the main killer for me it the wheelwells, they are way off! i have heard of many people trashing them, on the first run

    there are tons of bodies, jconcepts and parma also come to mind --- and you can make any body you want fit

    Yep the front wheel well is way off. It actually hits the pushrods when the suspension is fully compressed. As for the wheels, they just catch on the body, even with offset jconcepts wheels.
