Nothing at all wrong with those.

I swear, I think it is the window thing that bugs me the more I think about it.

I'm so frustrated trying to find something that looks like a TRUCK that I'm tempted to "pull" my own.

I fully understand the aerodynamic principles that they're trying to apply... but come on! It doesn't have to be scale, but at least an option that somewhat kinda-sorta looks like a truck if you squint at it...
This is what a REAL truggy looks like:



I know I wouldn't want my truggy to look like that!

LOL

I love the new truggy bodies..but who cares!?! 'Taste' is something we can argue about all day long, and there's no real correct answer. I just buy what I want to look at and drive.

Grimlock, I agree, I wouldn't want my truggy looking anything like that.

That Truggy won the Baja 1000 too. So it is one of the most famous ones out there. And it is one ugly SOB.
