JConcepts 2005 Chevy 1500 Samson MT body shell

Coming from JConcepts is their new 2005 Chevy 1500 Samson body shell for rigid axle monster trucks. When it comes to original and trend setting designs, Dan Patrick is a legend in the sport of monster truck racing. A chassis builder since 1989, Dan’s designs and inspiration lives through many components in the monster truck industry and of course, his world famous, Samson truck. Now JConcepts brings another favorite to the circuit with the RC version of the famous “big gunned” Monster truck. Starting with the 2005 Chevy Silverado, the JConcepts team took a considerable amount of time to blend the 3D Samson arms into the design. The blended truck and character have been around since Dan Patrick was contracted by a TV company in the early 90’s to produce something for the famous show, American Gladiator. Since then, it’s been a trademark of the Samson team to run the “big guns” on every racing vehicle in the line-up. The body was developed for 12.5” wheelbase trucks and a twin-port grille, full-width bumper and power hump hood create a strong presence, which is carried through in sculpted body sides. The grille area has not been compromised and accepts the detailed JConcepts decal sheet and includes two different grille and headlight options. The front fascia is strong and while the large tire openings swoop through, the bumper has recessed areas for side-marker lights and air inlet. The tailgate is rigid in appearance with a slight undercut that is so common on the Chevrolet trucks. The 2005 Silverado’s bed features a slight recess which painters can leave clear or detail to their specification on any build. No race truck would be complete without a bobbed rear bedside to give racers extra clearance and an unmistakable visual rake. Each package includes window mask, 2005 generation Chevy Silverado specific decal sheet, racerback, visor and clear polycarbonate body. In addition, this body includes the Samson graphics wrap that can be applied to the finished product for that final appearance.
