What the eff!?

So I was Googling around the interweb today, and came across this monstrosity....
The "SJ" (Street Jeep): Lenny_2's 2000 Jeep Chopped and Lowered SJ 2000 Jeep TJ - Las Vegas, NV
Tried to attach a pic, but apparently they're too large, or I'm too stupid.

OK, it's not for me but I like it. Would possibly work better with a hardtop.
A chopped and channelled TJ or YJ would make for a great ratrod as well.

I'm pretty sure it isn't photoshopped. There are too many pictures, and they're all consistent.

It's kind of funny, but I was thinking the other day that the cage in my Jeep was really tall, and wondered what it would look like chopped. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

I'll keep mine tall, plus won't have to worry about getting a custom soft top & windows.

I like how everyone thinks its the best looking Jeep ever. Apparently they are half blind or need to pull one of these to see it....

Apparently people think we only lift Jeeps because we think it's "cool"...if they only knew what Jeeps were intended to be used for...

Eh, I know I'm going to be in the minority here at WF but I like it. It's not my style, but I've definitely thought that when I get a better job and some more money that I'll have two Jeeps, one for the road and one for the trails. It is somewhat of an homage to the chop-rod scene. It's not simply some bagged s-10 or civic. It's different and it looks like the owner did put a lot of thought into it. Granted, no it's not my cup and it wouldn't be my first choice of modifications, but it looks like a lot of time and effort was put into it, and I think a lot of the lines were done correctly. Plus, it's all opinions and relativity. It's your car and the most important thing is - do you like it? Who cares what everyone else says.

I'm with burton...not my style, but interesting idea and to each his/her own. In my book being creative and different than others is a good thing.

The one guy with the profile pic of his lifted Wrangler flexing posted: "wow! nice jeep, have you sold your soft top yet? let me know!"

Either he's playing along to get all the take off parts real cheap (we can only hope), or he needs to have his Jeep card pulled...

It's different, but I think it might look cooler with blacked out accessories instead of all that chrome.

I think some of it maybe photoshopped, the fender flares and "shaved" hood.

Look at the pic of it next to the lifted one and the flares are black, also the painted flares seem way to "flat" if that makes sense, youd have different shades from top to side to lower half but its all the same.

Look at the side shot along the line from the hood to the house its way to uneven, ie poor job at selecting it.

Then the bright bright flash spot on the side pipes is over kill, makes me think they couldnt match up were it would be connected to the Jeep so they starbursted the heck out of it.

its just weird... like making a screwdriver out of wood and expecting it to turn metal screws, just not right...

I'd love to buy it, and restore it back to its badass self. The chopped windshield is cool, and the side pipes, but why a jeep? I'll bet some spoiled kid got the jeep for free and him and his buddies are "pimping" it.

Here is the ultamite question, would you still wave?

I like it. That's almost how I imagine our Jeep once it's finished. Of course we'll be running 13"x40s all the way around & have the chrome chain steering wheel. AND those sweet RENEGADE fender flares!

Im with hardermods on this one, look at the side view, it may be chopped for real, but he used PS to make it look cooler, that sunburst is so fake lol and the hood is terrible.

I had one of these years ago, and still think they look awesome. I think this TJ is trying for the same look.

TJ is nowhere near as cool as that. Knew a guy that restored Old Jeeps. But he died. He had some cool ones.

I think you guys are correct. I'm no photoshopper, but there's a lot of things that just look wrong...shading, etc.

It looks like a micro-machine. If you wanted to get a car lower to the ground, why would you choose something that gets 15 mpg with no acceleration. I would be looking towards a sports car at that point.

I wonder if he parks it next to his lifted Corvette on 33's. It needs to be rolled.

I will also be with the minority here and say that I like it. Its unique. And it takes a lot of "give a shit" to turn a Jeep into something like that. Someone put a lot of hard work thought and definitely $$$ into doing what made them happy. Would I do that with my Jeep? No. Not for me. But at least someone out there still has enough artistic enthusiasm about their vehicle that do something that isn't already done every day (I.E. your local Honda club, I know you have them, we all do.)
