Awesome build!! But now that I have seen it . . . there goes my theme/name idea. Guess I will have to mod it!! Going to try and talk my better half into letting me get those beadlocker rims, they are sweet!

Nice to see some more military folks on the forum!! (prior Navy myself, Fire Controlman 1993-2003)

I know the 1M and wrangler are completely different in every way, but which have you had more fun with as far as the build and the driving goes?

the 1M was by far my favorite BMW of the last 13 years of buying BMWs. It is an amazing nimble machine with boost.

the Jeep is a slow brick but the word FREEDOOM come to mind when you ride with no doors and no top, this is priceless and irreplaceable.

building the 1M was with the backup of big sponsors and I have made a lot of lasting friendships with the 1M crowds. the building of the Jeep was on my own dime and i am making lasting friendships here as well
