After reading all 11 pages at one sitting, recovering from a knee injury....Man-o-man...there are too many haters out there that are just as jealous as hell. I'm happy for you man, a little bit evenyious, or more...lol. I just wanted to thank you for the profession you chose, helping people in need and I wanted to thank you for hanging in there while haters did their job for the devil. God bless you and your family and have lot's of fun enjoying life.

A lot of haters would be an under statement. Not only are people jealous that it is a sick and rad jeep, but some are probably more mad that he came in here and said for everyone to tell him how nice his beast is. That was the attitude. He sure has a nice rig and anyone and everyone would be lieing if they said his jeep wasnt badass and they would be lieing if they werent jealous...

Not hating here. I love his rig. Just trying to clear this up.

Size doesn't matter, right? Its about how you use it.

Thanks man! It's all good, everyone has an opinion and that's cool! I'm still just enjoying every mile in the BEAST and so are my wife and boys are as well. As for my profession I love what I do and can truly say I wouldn't do anything else. Remember "life is far too important to be taken too seriously"!

Wester,
Did you ever make it to URE? Your Jeep is absolutely SICK! I spose most of your time @ URE will be spent at Kodak Rock as everything else may be too easy. Also, think about doing Gulchfest 17-21 Oct. I will be there for the weekend.

Wester M3. Which person did you buy your zombie decals from, and what size did you get. There are a ton of people selling these on EBAY and Id hate to get one that was done slap-dash.

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

Sweet looking rig! I think the bushwhacker fender flares look perfect with this size tire. I was set on 37s myself but have started debating over just going with 40s. I passed a jeep up with 37/12.5/17 from about 15 feet away, and although they looked good, I thought they didn't make the statement I wanted. 40s for sure do that!

If you are already considering 37's, just go ahead and do the 40's. Zero regret with it here.

Haha yea I agree. Problem is I started looking at 35s, then figured might as do 37s! NOW I figure might as well do 40s! Once I get my jku it'll b my personal fun vehicle anyways. I'll have a "normal" vehicle to drive the family in also. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yea, seriously, what's up with that stock hood?

And don't tell me you've still got OEM tail lights on there

Me like HULK!! Sweet Azz Rig man!! Funny how this is suppose to be a "Community" forum for Jeeps but people still spew hate out of their mouths. I guess jealousy does that to people. It's your Jeep, your vision, more specifically your money, and YOU build it the way YOU want!

What does a wheel/tire combo like that cost? If you don't mind me asking...That is a PERFECT match for tires that size!

Nice Jeep. I was not a fan of the Gecko green but yours has definately made me change my mind. Nice job.

I wouldn't worry about all of the negative comments. I have gotten my share of people telling me I should have done this or that but in the end it is your money, spend it the way you want to.

Mike.
