Thank you so much for this. Can you please post a picture of these mounted so I can get an idea of where to put the new holes?

I uploaded a pic of them mounted on my c14 chassis. I'm waiting for my 60mm shocks to come in.

Thank you! Any plan on releasing the STL for the tray?

Also, have a pic of the modified body with the shock towers?

I hope these photos will show up. With my electronics tray up front, there is no further modification needed to have the cab sitting at stock height. On the rear, I measured the opening for the stock dampeners and made a mark at the mid point. I then measured 15mm toward the front and 15mm toward the rear of the mark. I cut the bed at that point and cleared all plastic from the metal bed insert (on the C14) outward toward the side of the bed just wide enough for it to slide down over the shock towers. No other modification needed to have the bed sitting at stock height.

I haven't decided yet, but at this point it's unlikely. There's no support coming in from files I've already released.

Thank you for the pictures!!!

What do you mean support?

When you download files from thingiverse, you have the option to leave a tip for the designer.

Hello I love these but I tried to install on my C-14 and the bottom holes do not line up with the holes on the chassis :( thank you for your design

Yeah. You have to modify the chassis. I 3d print an electronics tray which accepts these shock towers. If you want to custom build, you have to be capable of performing modifications to your rig.

I am very capable I just didn't know if I was missing something. Thank you.

No. Not missing anything at all. There's no way to make a reasonable shock tower mount that will accept hobby grade shocks without having to modify the chassis and/or body.
