Looks like fun, but it would have been better if there was two Rangers there and not Jeeps...

Thanks! I love it, very capable, good street manners, so far the mileage isn't bad, and aftermarket parts like no other.

yea it didn't do bad at all. I'm not sure what it has for a front axle and such. But it's still a real 4x4.

Pictures look good. Love the jeep and Tys truck. Even with the tails tented that dark they still look like they light up pretty good even in the daylight. I was never a fan of those tails until I saw them on your truck and they look absolutely BA.

Goody any more interior pics of the inside? Those gauges look awesome.

They use a center section similar to a Dana 30.

Ty has LEDs in his tails that do well. Others with just regular bulbs would look way too tim.

Interior pic, rubicon gets the better looking gauge cluster, vs the X that gets just a plain black one. 6spd, manual t-case, better gauges, decent stereo with tweeters, mids and a infinity sub (factory). sat radio. cruise.

If you've had it for a week and a half, then that's more than enough time to have it lifted... no excuse, try again.

God damn that looks sick out there. I need to plan a road trip out there some time soon. Ever since I went to Vegas last year, I have wanted to come back and wheel it soooo bad.

And Ty, I'm glad you didnt get the AT's your truck looks too bad *** to change it.
