That steering stabilizer looks a little funky. I wish there was a direct shot.
PSC Rope Guide? Powder Coated Evo Rockstars?
Rear track bar axle end bracket wouldn't last long with that lift.
Very nice show truck.

Not 100% practical, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that its pretty badass overall. And the tan paint is killer.

i knew that color was going to look good built! and as much as i've always loved HREs, they're definitely not fit for a Jeep. and Audi on the other hand

I don't know. That wheel probably weighs 3 lbs so the tire carrier is only holding the weight of the tire, 3 lbs of wheel and some air.

Other than the wheels I think it looks good. And the thing with the pias, I don't think there's a hill steep enough in Florida to worry about takin them out on.

I don't hate it but I do hate show vehicles made just because they're "cool" or "wicked". I'm a little biased towards things being useable though... Plus, look what website it's on. The OP even states "This jeep will most likely see light trail and hunting expeditions and maybe some light mudding. Nothing that will be deep enough to clog the intercooler. Having an open airfilter element under the hood, the deep water/mud capability are limited". All I can do is shake my head and roll my eyes...

There are definately alot of parts that would need to be upgraded for wheeling but this is by far the nicest mall crawler JK I have ever seen. The color combo is sick.

someone needs to tell that guy to trim his rear pinch seam before it cuts both his tires in 2

WTF is up with his steering stabilizer connecting to the axle tube???

I do love the color.....hmm

This color is awesome!

A soft top in black would really set it off.

Not a fan of the wheels but TEHO.

Nice details!

x2 I definitely do not like tops painted to match, different wheels in black, and a black soft top would do it justice.
