I built this for a local guy here in Midland and he had to sell it after graduating from Northwood. Now somebody has ruined a good wheeler by sticking a bunch of useless stereo equipment in it. Kinda makes me sick to my stomach when these dipshits ruin a great trail rig.
yeah it sucks when people do what they enjoy with what they bought.

The first clue was the description "show ready". Interesting that he lists the susension upgrades, then the "fun stuff" which is all audio stuff.

I don't understand it. If he wanted a boulevard cruiser, why didn't he get a Camaro or a Mustang and put the audio stuff in it?

They've already got a Skory Autosound corvette that is pretty damn cool. I think he just wanted to reach a different crowd of people. Honestly, it's a pretty darn good marketing tool. It shows off the audio products they sell, the audio parts that they can build, and how they can install it into a vehicle. If you think about it, it's kinda hard to miss a huge yellow Jeep on 40" tires driving around...

Sure it's not what the jeep is built for and not what most any of us would want but look how many mall crawlers and 14 year olds they'll impress. Those are futre stereo equipment buyers.

because for every jeep in existence there is someone out there who wants to screw it up.

that sucks. i like how he lists all the mods (axles, tires, etc...), then writes "lets get to the fun stuff!" for all the stereo equipment

I guess I dont see why it matters. People bash this jeep.....but it see's just as much off road action as 90% of the rigs on this site.

I should have my Jeep built by you guys.

Thanks for the vid,
Ironman "

haha this is funny shit. ive done a lot of repairs to this jeep and they have no clue what it has in it other than the stereo equipment. it has been poorly maintained and is kinda rough now.

it will be interesting to see what it goes for.

X2.

It wouldn't even last on the street with stock axles and 40's anyway. Plus it looks like it was setup for a shop to show off.
