Default 8ight e 2.0 bodies

So Pro-line emailed me saying they discontinued the bulldog body. Are companies going to stop making 2.0 bodies? If so are there any alternatives? I know 3.0 e bodies are too narrow and I don't plan to switch to 3.0 anytime soon I just got my first ebuggy. Would I be able to pull off using a 3.0 nitro body without trimming it for an engine/fuel tank.

I'm running a JC finisher body for the 2.0 nitro on my 2.0e. It required some minor trimming around the esc area, and a spacer under the front body mount, but it fits... Snuggly over my a 5000 4s pack, but has more room with my smaller packs.
The 3.0 nitro has the same chassis dimensions/layout as the 2.0 so 3.0 nitro bodies will fit. Not sure about space for the battery, only one way to find out.

Jconcepts replied and said people were running the nitro JC bodies on 2.0e's
