If it were me and my company I would have the company logo on both sides. That is one of the best billboards you could ask for.

Picking from your 4 options I would say #1

For the paint scheme I would have to go with #1. I just don't like racing stripes on a jeep in any form. You could add a little something on the hood like other suggested though.

It's looking awesome, I just hope you never have to remove the valve cover on the engine...

We have altered the rendering to reflect what we are going to do with the paint on the Jeep and it's final look. We have decided to do a matte white, with a black grill, and all other accents will be black as well. The fenders, rock rails, bumpers, roof rack and roll bars will all be done in Line-X. We have decided this will be the best look overall and we appreciate the feed back everyone gave. Here is the official project rendering:

We have been working on getting the motor torn down this week to see what parts need to be ordered to begin the build process. The actual mileage of the motor was unknown when we acquired it, but after our diesel tech's got it pulled apart we were very happy to see that it is in excellent condition, and likely has under 250, 000 KM (around 130 000 miles).

The cross hatch in the cylinder walls is clearly visible, the main bearings are in excellent shape and nothing seems to be broken or worn much at all. Because we plan on beating on this motor and want to minimize the chances of any kind of failure, we are going to be replacing most or all of the wear items, and building it to hold well over the projected HP and TQ numbers.

Here are a few shots of the tear down.

I like the rendering much better than the 4 paint choices. Looks good, how much hp torque are you shooting for? Also I asked but didn't see, what size tires?

that is pretty bad ass! i'm liking numbers 1 and 4. i know i'm late sine you put up renderings but i still wanted to voice my opinion.

i'm also not digging the roof and separation between the bed and cabin.
why not do it like a unlimited with the extra rear legroom?

finally props to a fellow canuck!
