When are you going to find the time to enjoy your Jeep when you've got this panty remover sitting in the driveway calling your name?

Plasti-Dip the headlights too so you get that stealth look.

That's awesome! Imagine bubba coming out of Walmart and just seeing a stub where his nuts used to be. I always wanted to make a sticker or shirt that said "my jeeps already got nuts" with a picture of both differentials.

I've seen lots of things on Jeeps that make me shake my head, but don't really care what people do to their own rides or care if they like what I did to mine.

But I'd forgotten about truck nuts. They can make anyone look stupid.

I will be getting heavy steel bumpers soon but not for rock crawling.

Arctic Foxes/small Polar Bears jump out in the road all the time & I need the extra protection. Lol.

And for crying out loud throw away that Starsky and Hutch t-shirt.
Opinions are personal, and everyone is entitled to theirs.
Just keep a sense of humor, because if you like it who really cares.
Honestly i like rockstars but would never pay that much for a wheel. My 15s saved me 100 bucks a tire and 350 a wheel...... purpose built on a budget. I also dont have a ford 9 inch or a dana 60

My bumper has saved me from damage twice. One was a little girl that did not look before backing up in traffic. The other was a VW bug that apparently wanted to parallel park - poorly. His bumper cover had a bad day.

It's so subjective.

Oddly enough, it's the little things that bother me.

For example, to me, a Harley Davidson sticker on the back of a Jeep (or car, or truck) is cringeworthy. But when I see a slammed Jeep on low-pros I just ignore it.

This sticker figure sticker is OK with me!
