If your new to Jeeps, and don't have much wheeling experience, I'd say pass. Get yourself something a bit more mild and get some experience under your belt before jumping into something that extreme.

Okay now I'm curious. This is a monster rig. If you need help with the pics you can send them to 1blkjp@gmail.com or post a link to where they are and we can post them. What are they asking for this rig?

That is a crazy beast bro. There's easily probably 20k into that rig. The axles were built with some of the best parts. The TCase is about 2500 bucks also. Wheels/tires are probably 700 a corner.

Might be too much rig for you, but hell it would be hard to pass up if you can afford it. 16500 is pretty steep for a toy. Are you planning on daily driving it?

He said you can only do about 60 mph because of the swaying and the rpms are about 2500. And something about the driveline angles.

Im just wondering why nobody has bought it yet! Is it b/c of the price? Or is it not worth that?

Well with the 5.13's and the auto that's going to put your RPM's up there at highway speeds. He has the anti-rock and that would help you on the road.

However that thing is built as a trail rig. You could tackle the hardest trails in Johnson Valley without much fear of breakage. Now is your driving ability there yet? I have no idea. You are the only one that can answer that.

That's a good way to look at it. I've approached rock crawling in much the same manner.
