    This is actually an upgrade parts as they are broken build and this is over two years in the making gobbling up my money like a predator.

    UPDATE: Once I beat up on this body for a while I am going to make this rustler into a truggy. I plan on using rpm front and rear adjustable body mounts for the slash and stampede and I am going to mount this badboy up...


    WHY: because the bulldog body for the rustler looks like its been stretched to fit the rustler while the one for the pede looks like a true truggy body.

    I will paint it charcoal gray with CC yellow something, I don't know yet. 😝

    Really I have to disagree. I dont think that Pede Bull dog looks like a Truggy. IMO the Bulldog body built for the Rustler looks much more Truggy like. Here is mine oddly enough mounted on a Pede 4x4

    Ah I've read many threads with your truggy pede dad, I admire the work you did on that pede . I find the molding in the body for the shock tower un-truggy, also keep in mind that with the rpm body mounts the stampede body will be slammed as far as it will go.

    UPDATE: Once I wear out my 2.8 gladiators I'm going to get the big joes 2 2.2 pro line just released for the savage xs... These things are huge they aren't as big as 2.8 trenchers but are bigger than the stock 2.8 wheels n tires, now only if prolinbne would make badlands in this size
    2.8 gladiator height: 4.16"
    2.8 alias height: 4.06" I think
    2.2 big Joe 2 height: around 4.36"

    Yea, instead of replacing with stock parts I'd just upgrade them, usually with rpm nylon parts.

    UPDATE: Today I installed slash rpm rear a-arms and titanium turnbuckles to run front offset and get a little bit of toe-in.
