    Question: Where is the best place to get replacement body parts (like the whole box) new or used? Where have you all had the best luck? I have all of the LMC catalogs, but maybe I could order parts cheaper through a local body shop or something? THe shipping is just so much.
    Any advice would be awesome!
    Thanks,

    I went with a local body panel store and if we have one out here in the sticks I'm sure there should be one near you. This is especially good if you are building a crawling rig. I saved $45 on my hood by getting one with shipping damage. The crease is so small as to go unnoticed once I beat it in the woods a bit. You can usually get damaged panels for 20%-50% off and won't feel bad when you put the first ding into em.
