It takes some scissors and trial and error. There are no mods just make it fit cut where it hangs up and mark the holes right.

You can run it with no mods. It will sit high in the rear. Or get the 2.0 rear tower shocks and it will sit right. Since the 1.0 is shorter you will need to trim the bed area some.

just get a 2.0 and problems solved. If i were tight on money i would do as dez said just make it a 1.5 then put a 2.0 chassis on it and towers then ur close to a 2.0. You can get the 2.0 rtr chassis on ebay for like 30 max and then rtr towers for like 10 for both on ebay then get 2.0 shocks and radio tray and problem solved. Ebay it can total like 100 max give or take and you would have a pretty kickback truck.

Ebay is pretty safe not 100% but way safer than here. Also ebay is like way cheaper than buying from stores so i will do it and if theres no ship then i contact pay pal and ebay and get my money back. No worries buying only selling.

Again to mount the body correctly you really need the front and rear shock towers along with 2.0 front and rear body mounts. You can probably get away with just the rear tower and mounts if you use a proline or JC body that doesn't have the post holes cut from the factory. The 2.0 body won't line up with the 1.0 front shock mounts.

You'll need the rear tower either way. Just not the front.
