That is pretty sweet. I like the grill.
Also, is that a jerry can/giant lighter on the back?

Go to www.zippo.com. They have a pretty good picture of the rear of the Jeep. Couldn't figure out how to post the link.

Pass. The video sucks, it's all about the people looking at the Jeep and not the Jeep. Hate the grill. Good luck getting that spare off the roof.

Agreed. The video was all about that one dude. I got tired of looking at his ass after 30 seconds.

I don't like that Jeep at all. It loses it's "jeep heritage" when you overcustomize'

You changed the grill??? seriously?? booo!

I'm sure much money was put into it, but I will pass.

I'm thinking they made the grill because it looks like the inside part of a zippo...but I agree they should have left it alone any way. It's kind of a shame to see all that money dumped into a jeep that is just going to sit parked at malls and carnival's most of it's life.

JP I'm sure your exactly right.I have no idea who or what zippo is ,but I'm sure that was the thinking.

Matter of fact ,this dude from West Coast Customs is pretty amazing with his work. I just don't like to see any vehicle overcustomized.

Our Jeeps are so Iconic.

You know those metal flip top lighters? Ever see the second Die Hard movie when he flips open the lighter to set the fuel on fire?

Not impressed.

The grill and back end being the major mods. Paint job? Big deal. LED lighting all over it to simulate flame.

Bet more than a few on this forum could have made the same mods at half the price this TV show shop charged for it.

The grill was obviously done to represent the flame proof part of the lighter. It sucks and takes away the "Jeep" look. A jeep can be recognized from far away just by the grill. That's the the last thing they should have screwed with.

I have a couple that have been re-fitted with butane lighter inserts for lighting cigars.

Gee there's a Zippo Jeep, but I can never find a cool Jeep Zippo. Irony... the ones I find are always really cheesy looking. I just want a classic looking one with the Jeep logo on it.

Wasn't a Jerry Can, not sure what it was but it would have been a lot nicer if it was a Jerry can

When I quit smoking 40 years ago the hardest part was giving up my Zippo.

Ok, the recessed Zippo flame that is on the outside of the front doors is pretty cool. It's the somewhat subtle stuff like that, that I like.



If they had just done that and the Zippo on the side of the hood and left the over done grill and gas can crap off, it would have looked pretty nice.
