Sure there is, but you better be handy with a torch and welder because channeling the body is not something for a casual DIY'er. It takes a LOT of experience, time, and patience to do and do safely.

The Wings West body kit will cover up the frame fairly well from what I have seen of it.

How thick are the rubber blocks(I'm having a brain fart) between the chassis and the frame? Is there a way to get thinner ones?

The problem with getting thinner body mount bushings is that your body may contact the frame as things flex.
