    Front body posts?

    What are most of you guys using? I am using stock and find that after 1 or 2 roof slides on the road they have almost worn through to the body clip.

    I don't know...maybe I am not looking hard enough but I can't seem to find them for sale on their own, just pro line body post.

    It works out cheaper for me to buy a front body mount just for the front body posts with included shipping to Australia.

    Are you able to buy stockers on their own as I have an abundance of front body mounts?

    i think you can get them in aluminum but then again with few roll over they also wear out just not as quick as the plastic.

    I will stick with the plastic ones for now...just wish you could buy the front mounts separately and not the whole front body mount just for the body posts.

    No worries mate...I will stay with stock for now; I think I would grind the tops off in a matter of days with the way I drive my truck .

    I use velcro on on my body which mates with velcro on the battery box covers. Works great, as long as there is post left I don't have to worry about clips. I hate body clips.

    You are correct that the posts are not offered separately. You could always just do what I do: drive the monster truck on DIRT.
    It saves on body posts.
