I asked if it was done at 4wp. You said yes. He said he happened to go there today and didn't see it, joking as to the rather hard to miss aspect of a green gecko on 40s.

Make sense now?

Bro if you're happy with stock and plain colors that's cool, to each his own. Personally I wanted the extreme in looks and offroad performance and I achieved both. Stock or modded to death jeeps are the sweetest and most capable off road vehicles EVER! I promise you I'm going to enjoy this BEAST with my family for many years to come and I hope you do as well.

How about some details as to what went into this?

What lift? Gears? What size are the wheels--20s maybe? What kind of driveshafts did you swap in? Did you make any axle changes? Etc etc.

Love the ambition to it. I work in Raleigh everyday, so maybe I'll spot you at some point.

If you have to ask, you can't afford it

That is one awesome Jeep, OP.

Wish it was mine, the green looks good on that monster! I didn't like the Gecko until I saw it on YOUR Jeep.

Indeed! "Unstoppable" comes to mind.

It's freaking HUGE!!

It's all good man, I just couldn't resist the Shrek reference.

LOVE the color.

LOVE the Jeep.

How does it handle on-road especially around 70 mph?

Actually rides a little smoother than stock, only difference is the grip of those wide tires pull you left/right more because they are so wide. Driving home last night on 264 averaged 70-80 and felt fine.

To me, asking someone what they paid for something is a bit gauche.

In his shoes, my answer would be, "I don't know, I don't pay attention to that kind of stuff."

It's none of your biz.
