on a side note, my wife loves your kitchen layout, lol
Nice looking paint. I've always loved those JConcepts bodies.
Have to agree with ace, that is a very nice looking kitchen. Nice mix of granite and SS Appliances.
I bought the body already painted and holes drilled so I can't take credit for the paint job.
Again thanks, I guess I should have panned out to catch the stainless refrigerator and dishwasher.
I don't care about your kitchen, lol, but that's is a sweet looking Pede!!!
the desperado wheels are sick... I wish Pro Line still made the Torque wheels

The flames look great! Where did you buy the body?

Can I post his link? Or is that not allowed?
Please do post. I have seen several others posting links. Cool paint job!

Can't really recommend this seller now. This was after less than 15 min bashing in backyard on a 2s. My stock body held up better than this:
What's your climate? They will get brittle in a could climate. I think you should contact Jconcepts for this problem, its not the sellers fault that a company package a brittle body. Hopefully Jconcepts can some how make things right for you..
I'm not a hatchet man! I'm a maggot!
Agree with Dread ... your seller didn't make the body, he just painted it. If your lucky, he makes good on it with another body and deals with JConcepts himself (unlikely.) Not sure they can/will warrant an RC body against basher breakage.
You are right guys. I just didn't know what could happen since this was my first "real" body.
But, the seller made good on it and is painting another for me! Awesome seller!
He goes by "dsloomer" on eBay. And I stand corrected.
Just my experience but bodies don't last on this truck when we thrash them.

I have a custom mount that I make to put across the rear bed of the truck. The stock mounts are like blades hitting that body when it takes hard hits causing it to crack at the post holes and what your left with is a truck body without a backend. I use the extra battery hold down that comes with the truck. I use screws and a locknut to mount it to the rear body mount post holes. I cut down one of the stock posts and mount it to the center of the rear body mount so that the molded disc sits flush on top of the battery bracket. This does two things: First it provides one single post to mount the body and second it provides a flat 1 1/2 - 2" surface for the truck bed to lay across. I've actually been using my stock body since I bought the truck in March last year. It is starting to show signs of wear now, but has quite a bit of life left in it. The problem with the stock mounting positions on this truck is that you couldn't even use a body mount protector if you wanted to because of where they come through the body with the lip on the truck beds.
I contacted him and told him I was impressed with his work but not the quality of it staying on. He refunded me 50%.
