I just mounted up an mbx6t bulldog.....the front body posts need to be raised, or the shock tower hits. I'm kind of.....meh, it's ok. I'll get a JC Punisher next.....maybe it fits better.

from what ive heard the JC punisher body for the MBX6T is a perfect fit, no mods needed.

I have the punisher body on my truck and it is a perfect fit. It just requires a little extra trimming. And to help get a little more airflow over the engine you can lower the rear mounts so they only use one screw. I'll take a few pictures of mine and put them up for you guys to see.

Yeah, I like the way that one looks better.....can you post a shot of your front body mounts? Did you have to move the front or rear at all?

I just had a chance to run mine in a race, well, practice anyway....race got called for low turnout. I'm not real happy with the bulldog. It's about 3/4" too narrow, hits the pipe, and the edge of the radio box. It just doesn't fit that great.

I've got a Punisher coming to try out. If it fits like the bulldog, I'll just stick with the stock body.

The only thing I did witht the body mounts is move the rear ones. I used the bottom hole on the tower and used the top hole in the mount. It just makes it sit lower.

It actually fits around the chasis quite nicely. Doesn't hit anything like you say the Bulldog does. The only thing I'm gonna do with the next one is I'm gonna cut it so but the rear it goes as far back as the mud guards on the side. Other then that I love the way the body fits.

I just posted these in the Z01T thread, but I figured I'd put them here too, since my Bulldog pics are here too. Good for comparison...I changed the color scheme up a bit too. I think this may be my new combination. Even though I work for John Deere, the green & yellow was getting a bit old.

Anyway, the Punisher fit MUCH better than the Bulldog. It's the correct width to drop right down over the side pods, The body mounts are in the stock location, and nothing is rubbing.

For anyone mounting one on the O'Donnell, trim the body about 3/8" below the molded in body line. It will cover the side pods more, and looks much better. Other than that, it was just mount / mark / trim / repeat, until I had everything like I wanted it. Now I can use this body as a template when I do future ones.
