It goes without saying that a tough exterior is mandatory in the scale off-road world. A lot of criteria are built into a project these days and with endless platforms to choose from, it’s imperative to have a body shell that is tough, high-clearance and drops on a 12.3” wheelbase vehicle. The Creep by JConcepts is the latest in tough and dependable designs suited to high articulation vehicles in the scale community.
The Creep began a hard life working the local farms, occasional fair and eventually into the mud pits. Pulling the Creep from the hard work of a farm truck wasn’t easy, however, JConcepts has dropped the cloth on a new crawling legend. Starting with a crisp front-end, the narrow truck has a skeleton like grille and beady eyes that have an angular V shape structure setting up the hood line and front-end clip. The long nose dead-ends into the V-shaped windshield which transitions into a large single cab providing that all-important vintage feel.
It was important for this body shell to have a bed area that allowed ample mounting space for different chassis combinations but also space a user can experiment with their own accessories. Behind the rear cab bracing, a bed area rests with hard rails up top for strength and security. A dove-tailed rear end gives clearance and a rather experimental aggressive look to the rear panel. The front and rear are equipped with a flange style, sheet metal appearing, wheel well housings which gives the Creep its military fit and finish.
Each package includes window mask, JCI Creep decal sheet and clear polycarbonate body. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, supported and developed by professionals with style and authenticity.
Photo truck feature items –
The JCI Creep photo truck is an Element RC Enduro with removed floorboards. The JConcepts team added another battery tray (AE # #42003) to the rear to mount electrical and the receiver box. It’s important that the Creep body is either mounted high enough to clear side-guards or floorboards, or its necessary to remove them all together to meet the narrow width of the shell. The truck is fitted with JConcepts #3156-02 Landmines tires in green compound and mounted on #3389B Colt bead-lock wheels. The front bumper used is the Axial (#AX80125) with RC4wd front winch setup.
