IMO it looks like crap when you just drill the holes and plop it on...the rear mounts need to be lowered and the body cut a couple mm to clear the tower's.

Well , the stock holes will be covered up by a wrap for the body and I end up cutting 1/2 inch off the 1.0 bodies anyways . I just like the looks of the 2.0 body better .

I'd leave the 1.0 body that came with it on there, it's an awesome paint job
