it also has pinion brakes which are illegal for use on the road, but other than that it should drive down the road very well.

it will have a lock out pin on the rear steer so it wont be to crazy bad to control. but the pinion brakes will not be cool. and he wont be driving it on the road! but im sure a seasonal road to get from trail to trail if need be or a parade.

I love driving my jeep on the street and i have one off suspension, full hydro, and 40s. It drives great actually. but the exo ZJ Will Not be on the streets it will be a show/Wheeler only type of rig

There is just enough room to clear the exo-cage when taking them out.

I picked up some new fenders since we lengthened the wheel base. We have to measure and cut the new ones and then send them out for paint. I have new doors, and a new hatch getting done as well. I am going to have the whole vehicle cleaned up and repainted too.

Thanks for asking, as I know it looks rough with out the body panels.

Please keep in mind, that the pictures put up are not of final assembly. Chop just wanted to show you a few to ease everyone's curiosity.

The rear stinger is so large because there used to be a spare tire back there. I am going to have them make it lower, and bring it in a bit, since I will not be carrying my 44" spare off of the back anymore.

I am also considering lowering the front one too and bringing that one in a bit as well.

We have been joking about that around the shop. Talking about making a board with some squares and putting in a $1 to see who can get the closest.

I will be weighing it to see how much more or less it may weigh after the new upgrades.

thats the reason i have never typed up a build thread. way too much and useless comments.

on a side note how many degrees of steering do you plan on in the rear?

how close on when stuffed will the rear tires come to the body?

i will be allowing as much as i can. as far as the tire clearance i will be re working the wheel openings a lot. but i dont want to make them look big and gaudy as hell ya know i will know more when i get to work on it a little more. we are just so busy. we have 4 very Big build ups right now and 3 more on the way in the next month or two. just havent been able to touch it that much. not to mention i have been building the 2TE products and designing more for people everyday.

thats ok people will have mixed feelings on it and i cant believe you have been nicer to him, thats cool. the suspension on this rig is prity much tube so it will be a little diffrent with the sponsers we got this year i had had some cool things to work with. i will post up more pictures is a little while. you have to admit it does get old as hell seeing people rip on the owner when the thread has nothing to do with him personally ya know. its the internet and people will be people i guess some of it can be funny though. who ever came up with bacon pockets i laughed my ass off at that one. but i will bet my life that he is working on getting sponsered by hot pockets now.

this project reminds me of this, probably just as practical http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...raction+diesel
I like it for being different. some real good work is being done, I'm just happy its not mine & I'm not paying for it.

It will get weighed when it gets done. Chop is going to have it weighed and then hold something like a 50/50 drawing to see who gets the closest.

Thanks so much for your honest and positive comments. I appreciate you coming forward and laying it on the table.

I too, hope that the new upgrades make it more reliable and I actually get a chance to enjoy the event or trail ride.

I also know that the bacon pockets thing is just to ease the tension. But I also think that it would be even funnier if I did get sponsored by Hot Pockets, or something related to it. Chop gave me the idea, so if I do get sponsored, Chop gets some of the royalties.

Thanks again, your post says a lot about who you are.
