That limb was all the way up to his firewall! Luckily the old axe took care of that, and I didn't even hit his truck! As for the election, as they say, you can't fix stupid.

I have to agree, I'm sitting here recovering from a near fatal motorcycle accident in August, I just read through this whole thread, if you dont like it, hit the little arrow pointing left in the upper left corner of your screen and shut the hell up, I just bought a 2013 Gecko JKU, WesterM3, your rig is killer man, I like a little less wheel, like a 16" or 17", but bravo man..

I have the same Gecko green Rubicon and I love it. I only wish I could do what you did to yours . I have about 6800 miles on mine and 1/3 of that has been off road. The places I could go equipped like that. The black wheels are perfect with the color combo. Two thumbs up.

The four door looks great, glad they let you keep the parts.

I agree SoDaK! I used to make wish lists that included Lcog lifts and such. Now all I can really conjure are jeeps like his... and all Gecko. The only things that I want different are arched metalcloak front fenders and a body armor roof rack for the kayaks! Other than that, this is perfect!

Appreciate it guys, I was the same way when planning my build. I had followed two jeep builds from some guys in Arizona who had 40's and the same 6in Teraflex lift, and after having that image in my mind NOTHING else compared and I wouldn't have been happy building it any other way!

^^It's funny--even my wife comments how in our driveway, my JKU (2.5" lift, 33x12.5R15s, some rails, stubby) looks like a "monster truck." When we go wheeling with other jeeps or go to jeep events with jeeps like yours, and it suddenly looks "basic" and "modest." Get home afterwards, looks like a monster truck again.

Great looking Jeep! My computator has a crappy screen but it almost makes it look like you have directional tread tires and they are on backwards. Anybody have a better screen and can tell me I'm seeing things?

Well, if you consider my hands/feet/eyes being the remote control, maybe?
