JConcepts reveals the Ford F-150’s body modeled on the latest edition of the best selling pick-up in the world in 1984. In the truck world, Ford was on the verge of creating a classic and JConcepts was quick to offer this officially licensed mainstay to the scale world of radio control.

The seventh generation of the Ford F-Series is distinguished by its squarer look, sharper lines and flatter panels, the trucks were designed with the working man in mind. The “Blue Oval,” a trademark of all Ford pickups, makes a striking appearance centered in the grille. Stout fender flares are carved ever so carefully into the panels while openings allow for a vast assortment of tires on the market.

JConcepts continues to adapt his S2 body, this time to the TLR 22 3.0 2wd buggy.

The crew at JConcepts once again went to work to outfit the team during the 2015 IFMAR World Championships with a body capable of enhancing performance. This updated Silencer, dubbed the S2, rocks some familiar features but rolled together with a low-profile stance.

“The S2 body fits the 3.0 like a glove and has the proportions I like for a 2wd buggy. The cab is low but has the windshield in a place that provides a lot of stability.” – Ryan Maifield.

Slammed overall height allows the S2 to whisk through the turns with a low center of mass while the progressive cab design provides plenty of front-end force for superior balance and steering. A channeled roof directs the flow through the center of the body while also increasing the rigidity of cockpit. The dual side-window design that has become famous on the JConcepts bodies remains to bring a traditional feel to the layout.

The slight hood-scoop raised portion helps bulk up the front-end and provides clearance for the T5M geometry. The rear bed has built-in clearance for the massive big bore shocks and tower to help maintain that sleek appearance. The body includes a spoiler on the back of the body mold which can be trimmed and detailed to drop right on to the rear and secured with 2 included JConcepts button head screws.

The light-weight versions, unpainted without decals tip the scales at ~12-15gm lighter than their standard counterparts in the same condition. For identification purposes, the LW bodies feature a green protective film.

Caution: Due to the thin gauge material, be aware during painting and handling of the body how much pressure is applied. Specifically, while cutting liquid mask or masking tape be careful not to scar deeply into the body.
