Default what bodies fit rustlers?

I am new to the r/c world and just purchased an electric Rustler. I do not really like the factory body. I did a search on them and could only find two bodies made for them, but I have seen alot of picutures of rustlers with other bodeis. If any of you know which bodies will fit the info would be appreiciated. I am thinking about either an F-250, f-350, or maybe a new mustang body if they make them.

To be honest I dont think any body other than a direct replacement will really fit on a Rustler.

Pro-line makes a Chevy Silverado body that fits very well, specifically made for the rustler.

Do you guys know if you can modify any bodies to fit without to much trouble?

You can change out the rear shock tower to a Stampede rear shock tower so that you have two mounting points...

Once you do that, a lot of different bodies will fit, including the stock savage pickup body...The losi xxx bodies will also fit with minor mods...

Just so ya know...Also, if you change out the shock towers, upgrade to graphite or aluminum, because traxxas rear shock towers are really fragile if you like to fly

just my 2 cents
