Alternative body for XC/CC-01 (Tamiya Touareg)

Does anybody know some commonly available bodies that fit on the XC and CC-01 chassis of Tamiya. I currently have a VW Touareg but don't know if it will fit for example the HPI JEEP RUBICON body. This one looks nice for my CC-01 chassis.

Can somebody pint me in the right direction.

What do you want to get on it? You can make about any body fit, but I have put on a toysRus FJ cruiser hardbody on mine. It looks nice and scale.

Hi John,

I'm looking at the HPI Jeep Rubicon body.

That one looks pretty cool to my opinion but the dimension don't seem to fit.

I also found this one:

That one seems to have a better fit. But I prefer the Jeep body.

Here in the Netherlands a lot of nice stuff isn't available. Even the toy stores don't have realistic looking toys anymore nowadays. I don't want a F350 with rockets mounted in the trunk.

The wheelbase is too long at 12.5" for the rubicon. There are many guys in the RC crawler market that would ship to you. Have you ever checked out rccrawler.com? There are a lot of guys with your chassis running all kinds of bodies in the 1.9 scale section of the site.
