Awesome Jeep, I'm sincerely jealous! As well as half the members on this forum I'm sure.

"see" is a relative term. I bet he can see a firetruck with its lights on, so long as its not right behind him! But a police car? no chance!

at least, thats how mine is lol

Loved reading this thread, awesome pics! Did you give up on your HLKSMSH idea? Not sure if you combined zombie/Hulk themes.

Why would I need to look out the rear window?

True, but you have such a unique ride, I think it deserves a unique theme, I don't think I've ever seen a "Hulk" Jeep before.

This decal where the "Zombie Outbreak Response Team" decal is...

looks freaking awesome Wester. nice pictures.

is there anyway you can find the biggest rock or wall possible and just park one tire on it with your sway bar disconnected? just want to see how much those big tires and wheels travel! go all the way before flipping over or getting to tippy. been looking at the same lift, tf 6" la and some fox shocks on our new build.

Why all the hate?

Love the Jeep, Wester, looks better than ever with the tube doors.

I just don't get why people are hating on you for spending YOUR money the way YOU want to. You earned it, not them.

I really got a kick out of this comment:

Quote:
And as far as the kids go, I take my 7 year old daughter on trips, wheel it in places that I have a feeling the BEAST wont ever see. (not knocking someone who dosent offroad, just calling it like I see it.) Then drive it ever how many hundred miles home.
While his Jeep clearly sits on a trailer in his sig pic. REALLY? WTF? You count those trailer miles as actual mileage? Most folks don't.

I understand that a lot of Jeepers feel that they aren't wheeling unless they break something, but I'm not one of them. I want to drive my rig home, not load it on a trailer and then park it until I get a chance to fix it.

And for the record, I could do that if I wanted to. Buy a trailer and tow pig, etc. I prefer the wind blowing through what little hair I have left on the ride home, personally.

Keep rocking that BEAST Wester, that's exactly what it is.

Thanks for the support man! Bottom line the BEAST has turned out way better than I envisioned in my mind planning the build and I can honestly say I would not have changed anything! Whether sitting perfectly clean in the garage, covered with chunks of mud, or rolling over sand dunes.....bottom line it can handle anything thrown at it soft or hard, and look damn good doing it!

That is one great looking Jeep. I already planned on getting that color next year after getting my X paid off and after seeing yours all fixed up there is now no doubt. Thanks for sharing your awesome project with us. Mine will be a 2 door and manual tranny and since I don't have any need for the use of a backseat it won't be in there as soon as it gets home. Again love your Jeep and makes me want mine all the sooner.

Wester - I keep coming back and reading this thread. Thank you for all the pictures of your beast! I like the look. You may have helped sell me on Gecko. We'll see. Please keep the pics (shiny & dirty) coming!

Next thing to come will be the Rigid 10 inch LED bar added to the front bumper and getting the ARTEC axle armor truss kit welded on!

I only have one question...how in the h#ll do you see out the back window with the HUGE spare? LOL.

The 6 inch lift would make sure I NEVER got into the Jeep gracefully...lol. I don't have a lift on mine and I can barely look lady like getting in and out of it.

I am not a fan of the tan interior either but I love the Jeep. It's just....BAD.

Signed up just to comment on your Jeep. I've always been a fan of the squaty, big wheeled baja rigs...but your Jeep looks really good man. You have me questioning my plans.

Would you mind posting the dimensions from the ground to the side steps and the lower door jamb?
