Not bad, long travel and 2.5" taller, and close to the same. Seen another guy with a 4runner had his front tire up on a 3 foot tall stump. All other tires on the ground still.
I like your jeep though. Looks great.

I saw a guy with a jeep that had the front tire on a 4' tall stump. All the other tires were on the ground.

Weren't you just saying your 4runner could make a rubiocon with a 4.5" lift look bad?

I can't believe I'm letting you troll me like this, but you can't seriously carry this much stupid around on your 300lb lardass frame can you?

All I hear is blah blah blah, my jeep is better. Cry cry cry. Bunch of Bitch's around here.
I will say one thing, a jeep has the aftermarket availability hands down.

Please bump some of the build threads here, including the (2) good ones and then all of the bad ones and explain why they are bad.

Oh, and the pics of your flex and the pics of the red TJ's flex are not "close to the same".

You didn't answer my question.

Are you a troll, or are you really this stupid?
