Default proline body question

Is there any reason this body wouldnt fit on an xl. I know it wouldn't be a perfect fit but anything can be made to fit right?

i want to go with a army truck theme on my truck with this body.

I would take the measurements from your current body and match them to the Proline body dimensions.


Proline 1972 Chevy C10 Long Bed Body

Length:
18.7" (475mm)
Width:
7.1" (180mm)
Height:
5.8" (147mm)
Wheel Base:
12.6" (320mm)

Yes. Pretty much any of the t-maxx 3.3 will fit the Flux (and Savage X for that matter).

He is looking for an XL body, I had several 72 Chevy bodies from Proline on the XL. Look in my photos. Glen

my proline ford f650 was apparantly made for the xl but it fits great on my x 4.6... you wanna be careful with what websites tell you, best to use the measurements they give instead

Most of these 1:1 truck paint jobs are giving me ideas about how i should paint it.

I am gonna make it fit somehow.

I just think the bodystyle looks good in green.

Check out this link for sure:
