Press Release from JConcepts:
As the most radical off-road production pickup ever, the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor makes the perfect monster truck body. Back in 2010, JConcepts was the first to deliver a Ford Raptor body to RC enthusiasts and now, the first to deliver it to the solid axle monster truck community. From a toughness standpoint, nothing appears as mean as a Raptor and that fits right in with the big tire genre of monster truck racing.
As the 1:1 trucks hit the mid-2000’s, they were looking for a body to spice up their act, look more racy and add another dimension to the appearance. A lot of the teams raced to market the first “trophy truck” body or desert themed monster truck and a new generation started. On the RC side of things, the option just did not exist which left a lot of scale monster truckers scratching their heads while trying to come up with that look for the scale counterparts.
When it comes to racing, JConcepts is all-in and decided it was time to unveil the Raptor. During the 2018 Open House located at the Bigfoot 4x4 headquarters in Pacific, Missouri, JConcepts pulled the tarp off its most detailed RC monster truck design yet. Inspired from the kings of the business, JConcepts delivered on styling the Ford with large wheel well openings, sculptured cab, recessed windows, hood scoop and race tucked rear fenders.
The beauty of the JConcepts shell is that it works well on a number of solid axle trucks on the market but is also adjustable in wheelbase fitting trucks from 12” to 13” long. The race proven extra cab look allows ample room to mount the body on an Axial SMT10 and still packs a mean punch mounted on custom “shafty” and clod buster based rigs. The flat bed area can be left clear during the painting process or detailed exactly how the user wants to replicate their favorite monster.
Each package includes window mask, new 2010 generation Ford Raptor specific decal sheet and clear polycarbonate body. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, supported and used trackside by our world-wide racing team and developed by professionals with style and authenticity.
