What kind of axle mods are required for that set up? That looks amazing. Crazy colors always look best when heavily modded. Keep us posted with pics of it dirty!

To run 40s safely and with proper gears 5.13 or 5.38s one should really be looking at a D60. Especially since the OP's rear like the front is locked.

I liked until the last picture. That tan does not look right with the light green.

Where's the wheeling pics??

How did you order that seat color?

Regardless, that is one amazing jeep.

All you need now is a heat reduction hood, snorkle, some C4, M68s, shotgun, SAW, machete... couple of cases of MRE's and it's off to the zombie hunt!

agreed. looks pretty bad arse but i don't like the interior khaki or whatever that is. i just pray to god that someone abuses that thing and it doesn't sit in parking lots all the time.

just sayin...

how close are you to those rims when you get down to 8-10 psi? and 40's on the stock D44's? did you do all the upgrades you could possibley do to the D44's to support that size tire?

Wowzer!

I think 4WP in Raleigh mentioned to me that they'd be doing this build--is that where it was done?

They did an excellent job! Turned out better than expected! And as to the comments about hoping it gets used offroad, don't worry this jeep is gonna take a beating and was built fully to take the abuse. And by the way the saddle tan interior looks freakin awesome and the contrast of the black/tan accents looks awesome! Thanks to Brandon and the guys at 4 WP for building this beast!
