Anyone have any idea if there is any other bodies available currently other than the kit body that will fit this truck?

None currently... but JConcepts should be releasing an updated version of what they had for the RT6/CT4.2 so that it fits the rear for the T5m better.... they mentioned something about it a few weeks ago in the Jconcepts thread

No

The JC body will be out very soon. Should be available before you can even get the truck.

I love the Bulldog, I have both the rear and mid motor versions for my RT6. Wonder if they will fit the T5m?

Probably not. The RT6 uses the same bodies as the T4 and Centro conversion, and the T5M has been said to be 10 mm longer. As it is an AE vehicle, PL and JC will offer bodies sooner rather than later.

IMO the VTS is garbage for anything but a short course and even then I dont like it. Its heavy and just to much for a buggy and ST. The V2 is better but still nothing compared to the Schelle or Avid slipper. Almost all the pros run the V2 which is prob why they included it in this kit.
