That's a TJ.

I'd take the V8 though.

That is a badass rig. Looked nice crawling through and over those obstacles.

man, if i thought it would actually be beneficial to have, i might consider it but that seems a bit much for my taste. heck, i'm not even fond of 42's and they're just slightly bigger than what i'm running now.

Over the top. If i would build a crawler to that magnitude, definitely, otherwise nah lol. But i love the 4 wheel steering. At that point i think id just go for monster truck

There was a guy in Moab with 54s I think. Seemed pointless to me. But that is the beauty of jeepin...to each their own.

LOL!! you mean the one the driver was scared to death on seven mile rim and needed mel to help him figure out a way keep his rig from unloading? yeah, i'm pretty sure that guy sold it not too long ago. :crazyeyes:

To be more specific, the owner and builder would not even drive it offroad. He had one of his mechanics from the shop drive it and he was a bit nervous on the off camber stuff too!

Me at 6'3" standing next to the JK on 54"s

LOL! Yeah that's the one. Didn't he leave his sway bar endlinks at the trailhead or something like that?

yep, that's the one alright. that shot really shows the scale of things well.

if i recall, he just didn't have any. the thing wasn't street legal or, at least in the state of utah and so it had to be trailered everywhere. while it may be a case of to each their own, this ultimately wasn't even something that the owner wanted to own. :crazyeyes:

Hey, that's my right leg in the shot too!

Well at least he's got his overlanding rack on top, because you can never be too top heavy even on 54inch rubbers.

I would consider that as Reno's finest piece of shaven manscape

That's a Monster Jeep. Looks cute but pretty impractical. I imagine it would roll pretty easy. :crazyeyes:

If you are talking about the one on 54" TTC tires that I was standing next to.....well it is sort of cool in an "over the top" kind of way when its just sitting in a parking lot. But on the trail it looked really silly and was just awkward in almost every situation it drove through. Not a practical build by any means, but I if you knew the builder, it matches his personality and his style of jeep builds.

It really look stupid, you guys on 40`s at least your jeeps look balanced but this one just look awkward. My 2 cents
