Chop only wanted to post some pics of it to answer the questions out there regarding hight, and how monsterous it might be looking.

I am sure he will post a whole build up thread after it rolls out the door. Which I am sure he said in the original post in this thread. And if it isn't there, I know he said later on in this thread.

He doesn't want to post any more pics of it until he is sure he won't be changing anything else on the rig.

Thanks for your patience, and keep watching for the actual build thread about this rig in the near future.

Forgive my ignorance, itís a sweet rig, but wouldn't it have made more sense to just build a buggy with all that good hardware and tube? I really do like the rig and I don't want to come off as bashing it or anyone for that matter. It would weigh half as much and be twice as functional. Have no clearance issues. I understand the motivation to have the ultimate rig but arenít JGC bodyís of that year rather disposable? I guess I'm sort of curious to the motivation to do this is all. Again, itís sweet and I'd wheel it. Guess I havenít a leg to stand on either with the irrational amount of money I've plunked into a JGC with almost 200000. We'll there you have it, it's a disease. Iíve answered my own question and for some reason is still hitting post so everyone knows Iím insane tooÖ BWAHAHAHAhahahahahaha! (weld's more crap to own busted JGC)

That is a very good question. I know you aren't trying to bash me or anything like that.

I have been asked by a few people, or rather been told by a few people, including but not limited to, Solid Axle, Superior Axle & Gear, DTS, a few local shops, and even the guys at 2TMO, that it might have been easier to build a buggy by now than make a JGC wheelable. (I'm not trying to name drop, just giving an example of who has said the same thing)

Originally it started as a basic build. Then I did the HEMI & the Exo-Cage. Then I started breaking stuff, and moved on to the Rockwells, Atlas, one off suspension, and 44" Boggers.

After the Exo-Cage, it was a done deal. I didn't get all of the cool stuff until this past year, the cage was done a couple of years ago. At that point why start over when we can just make this work.

As for being disposable, yes the bodies are uni-body, and in some cases junk, but the guys building the rig, have re-inforced the uni-body, and many otherweak points on the JGC.

Now I have to say, I do have an awesome fabrication crew at my disposal, and I'm very thankful for all of their hard work and efforts that they have put into this build. With out 2TMO and my fortunate sponsors, this would never be possible.

Thanks for your inquiries. I obviously have the JGC fever too.

Without opening the door for more , yes, I am the guy who wrote to 4 Wheeler. I had no idea it was going to be published. I wrote them a letter on their website thinking I was going to get an answer in an email.

In my defense, I did try to search it. Looked for it everywhere. I guess I missed the info tag, and what's available now, may not have been available then, as it has been published now and it is obviously readily available.

In other words, the link that you are telling me to look for now, may not have been there when I did my search 6 months ago.

Either way, there was an area to send in your questions, and it asked for a return email, so I did.

I guess next time I will just come onto the all knowing "GL4X4 Forums" and ask my questions, but I'll be "Attention Whoring" if I do that.

Soooo, what should I do.....? I tried to be discrete about it, and of course my "GL4X4 Groupies" decided to "Attention Whore" for me.

90% of all the claims of my being an "Attention Whore" has been done by everyone else.

All I can do is sit back and laugh. I do a search for something, you guys post it. I'm in the news, a magazine, a picture, or ask a question, and you guys post it. You guys find out things about me before I do. Hence the question in 4 Wheeler.

You guys are focussing on the past or what have you, the negatives, instead of focussing on the positives. We are all fellow wheelers, who are trying to support the sport so that all of us can enjoy wheeling.

I understand you need your cheap entertainment. But as I said before. The past is the past, I can only move forward and learn from it.

Go to their website and show me where it says, if you ask a question it is going to be published in the magazine.

If I were an editor at a magazine, which I am not, I would have looked at it as an opportunity to answer an oobviously popular question. They don't know who I am nor did they think, lets add to the Anthony is already going through.

Keep padding your post count. You are truely becoming that guy who has to be the one to start shit for no reason. So call it what you want. I know the truth and that is all that matters.
