Your gecko on 40's and jkashat's storm trooper build are my two favorites on this forum. The green is so "in your face" I love it!! Keep the pics and videos coming.

Agreed, I love the storm trooper, however you know that the HULK would tear a puny storm trooper to shreads, just being funny!

Poser Shots!!!


Went to 4WP today and had them install my new Warn Zeon 10S with Factor 55 thimble. Also picked up a Monster Hook! While there we got it up on the ramp and flexed it out and trimmed off a lot more metal in the fender wells, I ought to be good now!

This does look great.
If you don't mind my asking, how much ($$) aftermarket do you have on your rig?

Do you have a summary build sheet?

This was his initial list earlier in the thread... as for price, you're best just gathering your own estimates, because regardless what his cost, it will be wayyy off the price you may see. If you're just asking what a Jeep LIKE this would cost, expect anywhere in a massive range from $35k to $70kish... and more... ... and less... haha.

Btw... this Hulk is looking better every time I see it! Is this flex with the sway bars disconnected?

Wester - Badass rig! Green was the right color, definitely a lot of Jeep envy out there for that rig! Looking forward to more videos of that monster off-road.

Oh and kick-ass license plate!
