I'm the owner of the JEEP in the pictures that Chop posted, and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has taken the time to look at it and leave your positive comments.

I hope that we all get the chance to meet up while we are out supporting the sport or maybe at a car show or off-road event.

Can't wait, & thanks again for your support.

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.

I WAS HIT BY THIS.....



That looks like a car to me...!!!

There was only one person in the car, the driver, and the only injury he received was a laceration on his nose from his own air bag when it deployed.

We ALL walked away from that accident.

This doesn't tell me anything....nor does any other post I've read....what happened to cause this???

He ran into you??

Is this the patentable part of the exo cage?

I think those are patented bacon pockets. They even keep it warm.

Wow who seriously cares about hood scoops and driving a rig built to wheel on the street. you all can sure talk a good game but i cant wait to see what you people do in person on the trail. come on now everyone has there rig the way they want it. im sure i can pick out flaws and dumb shit on a lot of rigs but do i NO because its not my ride so why would i give a shit. if they like it thats all that matters.

yes an exo cage is a good idea who ever built it did a Great job and had a lot of good ideas. The stingers are excessive to say the least and I Hate the 8 balls but what ever its not mine but i give mad credit to the guy that built it. and anyone who thinks an exo cage or tube to protect body panels are not needed in michigan. then i would like you to follow me and not bitch when you blow out windows and flat out total your rig.

I didnt make this thread to bitch about the owner send him a pm and call him what ever you want or go to some bars in fenton where he hangs out and talk shit to him i dout he will care.

people asked about pictures and what it looks like so i posted some. im sure some will like it and some wont but thats what make the offroad community fun because you get to see different ideas!

i guessing weight to be around 9000. it will be a heavy mofo and i will be taking it to have it weighed and setting up a 50/50 raffle or something like that for a doller a number and who ever is the closest will win some money. i will only know the number and i will not get to guess.

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?
