    Suggestions on a Revo 2.5 body replacement?

    I am looking for a replacement body for my Revo 2.5 and am not having much luck with anything that I like. I am trying to find something similar to the JConcepts Illuzion or Crowd Pleaser bodies. All I can find are F250's or other truck bodies. Any ideas?

    yeah its getting harder and harder to find body for 2.5 revo now a days. do yourself a favor....get the 3.3 chassis and buy the revo platinum body.

    The gold truck was on a 3.3 chassis, but I recently built a 2.5 from scratch and used that body on it.
    It actually had the outlines for the 2.5 body post, so I just took my body reamer and made the two holes.

    You can use a 3.3 revo body on your 2.5, but you will need to drill 2 holes and then mount a bumper to the front of the truck.

    That is how the above roller I bought was setup. ( i bought a 3.3 chassis for the above truck and then used the 2.5 chassis for the gold truck)

    Thanks guys. I may look at getting the longer chassis. What else will I need to complete the conversion?

    Maybe the steering turnbuckles from the servos to the bellcrank, and you need a longer front center driveshaft.
