Default MBX5T Body Options

I'm looking at trading my xb8 for a 5T and was wondering what bodies you use on your 5t's? I'm thinking of a 6T Punisher or bulldog. Pictures are appreciated.

I'm thinking either the jconcepts 5t body, or 6t bulldog.

I have a MBX5T with the proline bulldog MBX6T body. The body fits good, you just need to remove a little more material at the rear shock tower. I believe the MBX6T is a little narrower than the MBX5T so the body flares out a little at the bottom at the mud guards. Otherwise it's a good fit and updates the look of this truggy.
