Yup, discgolfer does it again. Cool.

To answer the question, you'd have to figure out the dimensions of the body first. You might have to lift the mounts/get new mounts to make it fit.

Hey what a coincidence - my buddy just gave me an old F150 body of his. It looks like it'll fit pretty well once my custom body mounts are done. It's NOT a ST Atomik body - it looks like a smaller Monster Truck body. I don't feel like posting a pic right now (bad back problems), but I'll post more info eventually.
