This project wasn't about frugality. I knew the look I wanted and the quality parts it would take to not only achieve the look but also have something that would kick ass off road. Just say when I tell you this BEAST is sitting on 20's I'm not just referring to the rims.

Drive that bad boy, that's what I'm talking about!

I hate it when people buy and build vehicles and put them in their f'ing garage and look at them and say "Isn't that pretty?".

Cars and especially Jeeps are made to be driven, way to go, OP.

His biggest concern with breaking that will be when it's locked and hes trying to get traction.

Not to be an ass but if thats all they did and it set you back 20k you should have shoped around a bit.

I love the color.

I think the rims are way too big. As well as the tires. It all just looks out of place.
