Pro-Line Bushwacker body



From Pro-Line:
Monster Truck crawling and plain ol’ backyard bashing just got a little more fun with the new Bushwacker body for T/E/2.5-MAXX and Savage Trucks.

The Bushwacker body originates due to the high demand of off-road and rock crawling communities that are sweeping the nation. “Rock crawling is super-hot right now. What better way to cater to that market with a body that emulates off-road like the Bushwacker,” says Scott Hughes, Marketing Manager for Pro-Line.

The Bushwacker comes complete with detail decal sheet, paint-then-peel overspray film, and is made from super-tough .060 Lexan.

When you’re looking to make your off-road truck look like a “true” off-roader, then check out the new Bushwacker body by Pro-Line.

Features:
· Made from .060 Lexan, the strongest on the market
· Highly detailed off-road design inspired
· Paint-then-peel overspray film included
· Detail decal sheet included

Bushwacker
fits MAXX™, Savage
Part #3231-00 $32

Its basically the Toyota FJ40 with no branding as such. I guess its one to satisfy demand without licensing issues.

This is the only thread I've seen with "Bushwhacker" and "Fantasy" that hasn't been something ... wrong.
On a slightly more useful note ... looks like a nice crawler body.

My question is ... why do they still show t-maxxes with those shocks? Must they tease us like this? Cruel and unusual punishment, I say. Discontinue the most awesome shocks for t-maxx ever, and then show them in pictures of your bodies.... Pro-line, that's just dirty... lol.

I'm confused, is the Toyota FJ40 the same as the Land Cruiser? That aside I must say it is truly stunning and should make for a great crawler body. However if Proline releases another crawler body I sure hope they bring back their Dodge Power wagon, I miss it.

Yes the Fj40 is the 1960 to 1983 Toyota Landcruiser, FJ40 is the technical term.

I want too see a Toyota Hi-Lux

I know, it's just like the Jeep Pleazer, the Magnum Pleazer and the PT Pleazer. If Pro-lines wants to get away from licensing, fine. The Pro-Line mold makers need to mold something new and there own body style. They are good mold makers with a lot of artistic talent and Pro-Line needs to just let them go wild with there molds and make some cool prototype futuristic stuff. Then I might buy an unlicensed body. As long as there just copying a design by real car designers and changing it up to look like a cheap fake, forget it! Not at the prices Pro-line chargees, I exspect top quitly I'll stick with the Chevy Dodge and Ford licensed bodies.

Ideas for Pro-line:

A tank body for the Maxx!

A body with big airplane wings off each side for extra long air time!

Yep. That's a pull start TRX.15 in there. That T-Maxx has probably never seen dirt.

So far the've done the FJ40, a Ford Courier, a Ford Early Bronco, Dodge Power Wagons, and several Chevy and Ford pickups amoung their 'fantasy' classic bodies. I'm still waiting for an International Harvester Scout (or Scout II) body. That'd bring two of my hobbies together! An FJ55 would also be awesome for the longer WB monsters.

Actaully its a TRX 2.5, you can tell by the black plastic head protector on the top, plus its all silver, not blue and silver the pro .15 was. It also looks to be sporting Pro-line's wide maxx suspension arms. I used to have them, those were the most flexible suspension arms I've ever seen, crazy.
