    you can use any body style on any crawler you want. you just have to drill the holes in the body where the body posts are. but if you want a different truck, the losi comp crawler is awesome! my buddy has one. the axial crawlers are just nice cause there are so many things you can do with it. its probably the most capable stock crawler.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    stupidmonk is right, you can purchase all sorts of different bodies for them for any rock crawler. They cost about $20-$30 ea. plus paint. In other words the frame of the crawler is the same, but you can change the bodies of the truck.

    I used to work in a Hobby Shop and I personally would recommend Axial rock crawlers, they are of very high quality, especially the kits. The RTR's cost less but aren't as good of quality.
