Further Description/Back Story I love the TRX4 Defender. When out on the trail I was having issues with how top heavy the truck was. Especially after adding the Traxxas lift kit. After looking around on the internet I saw where the 2020 Dodge Ram Body would fit the TRX4 12.8 Chassis. I am a die hard Dodge guy so I decided to make this work. Took some body modifications to get the OTTSIX 2.2 USD Stickys not to rub, but mission accomplished. This Ram Body along with the Treal brass portals definitely took care of the top heavy issue I had. Hoping once the 2021 Dodge Ram TRX is released Pro-Line will make a crawler body for the TRX4 12.8. Hint Hint!
