Has anybody cast a 2003 and up dodge truck, for what would have been at the time, the Craftsman Truck Series ... ? All I really need is the body, or 2 of them ..

If there haven't been any done for NASCAR, like your looking for, I would suggest using the ram vts and modifying it for NASCAR truck series use. I understand there is a lot more to it detail-wise than doing a custom street truck, but that may be your best option. Use styrene to cover over the lights and grill if needed and use light and grill decals from another NASCAR truck/dodge race car (mainly for the grill look of the dodge) or paint the grill/lights yourself. In general I'd say use another NASCAR truck for the basic race truckers and mod the rest ...

The Ram of that year ( the VTS ) is available in resin and plastic. I'm looking for an '02 and up, different body style .. no real way to convert a 1st gen to a 2nd gen, completely different truck ...

I understand the difference between 1st and 2nd gen. I was just making a suggestion as I'm not into the race trucks.

Why can't you use the Ted Musgrave #1 nascar Dodge truck that is out there for a build. Nice 1/24 model kit to build and a late model truck from the Craftmans truck series, just do the up date as needed.
