Wasn't this for sale once and only to a special owner that if you didn't approve, you wouldn't sell them the Jeep?

yea it was for sale, and i was wanting to build a tube chassis buggy. but i figured, the JK is paid off, might as well have fun with it. Plus, not too many JKs that are going to be running the set up i am i planning.

We are truly fascinated with this ground breaking build. I hear only a few high end custom shops have done anything like this and to think you're doing this in a garage. Kudos!

gear ratio hasnt been decided yet. since im going to be running a 6.2L LS3 engine with a mix of 39" and 42" tires.

rear will be a yukon spool, front will most likely be a yukon grizzly locker. (not a DD)

Glad you are sponsoring yourself.

Did you make the call to yourself and ask if you would like to be apart of this build?

I think people genuinely like Brandon.

Just like 2012 when he went through his last black widow build of Tons, its all the bullshit that accompanies it. People see right through all the SEMA and sponsor talk.

Then the comments that nobody is doing a build like this, or customer pics from his LUDNUTS off road company. Dude, just say.. here is a cage I built for a buddy of mine in my dads garage. No need to say "custom cage for one of our customers"

Just be yourself and post your build...forget the theatrics

Ok, am actually genuinely curious about this build as I just sourced a pair of SD axles for my build and am planning to run Artec truss and mounts. Keep it coming, thanks!

Why single triangulated front? I'm assuming engine clearance on the uppers, but there have been some guys who were able to get enough clearance and angle on the uppers... And others who built new crazy oil pans.

Some Flex Testing





Picked up a set of 46" Military Tires on 20" Beadlocks

No, these are not the off road tire, as they are rated at 10500lbs each, so my jeep is not going to flex the sidewalls. I intend to use a 43" Super Swamper Sticky or 44" Pitbull.
