The bottom 5 items are unnecessary for simply converting to a truck body.

That list is a little overpriced.....

This KM kit that Dan sells even comes with the swaybars and other extra items.

Actually their newest body on the 30.5cc T1000 is THICKER than my old HPI 5T body.... They have reinforced them now and made them stronger due to complaints. It's nice that the clone mfgs. are actually listening to consumers now.

The Rovan bodies are still brittle and haven't been updated yet. But the newest KM ones are good to go.

I went with the complete km 5t conversion kit along with clear body from danlc4,

the plastics are excellent quality and have plenty of flexability,

the bodyshells are almost 2mm thick and are not at all brittle,

mine held up just fine even after some hard bashes around my local quarry,
