Entire side of the benz destroyed by the 37″ tires and Ace Eng. sliders. Couple dents in the rear door from his mirror. The Jeep is a tank.

For a vehicle that gets poor safety just because it doesn't have side impact air bags, all the accidents I hear about the Jeep occupants seems to always come out fine. I feel safer in my Jeep then my last car for sure.

I'm a Pirates fan. Yeah go ahead with the jokes ! I'm just waiting for them to choke, just like they did last year after the ASG.

No jokes needed! I like seeing teams that have been hurting doing well. It's good for sports to have some parity. I live 10 minutes north of Yankee Stadium (the original and real one) and watched them suck it up in the 80's all the time. I know there's a lot of history here, but the Bucs have a lot of history too and you fans should have good teams too. Looks like you're headed in the right direction!

My question: how does a 6'11" dude fit in a wrangler? Guys on this forum who are 6'3"-6'5" complain about the seat being too high and hitting their heads on the soundbar... Maybe Rauch had a custom seat?

I believe his seats are totally stock.
And even after off-roading, the cleanest I've seen.
