"Cute jeep" build

So I recently got into the jeep family and was so happy to finally pick one up myself. I bought an 06 tj with a 6in lift on 35s. It's got a teraflex 9550 steering stabilizer, rubicon express long arms and the lift looks really good my only thing is when I go somewhere the ladies always say my jeep is cute. Now I love my jeep to death but "cute" isn't the look I was going for. I named my jeep the "rubber duck" because of its color and also got the name from the movie Convoy. Needless to say I want my duck to look nasty and any suggestions to how I can make it look "not cute" but still uphold its name is appreciated. Stinger bumper? Rock crawl bumper? Any suggestions to help me give it that mean look will help.

I think your jeep looks awesome. In my opinion it doesn't look cute, but if you want it to look more manly you could consider getting new fender flares, sliders, or a new bumper.

I mounted ammo cans to the exterior and interior. used paracord for everything. a lot of females that I know only say, " this is DEFINITLY a guys jeep.." now I don't know if that is there way of saying its hideous or not. but don't really care...just enjoy what you have and to HECK with those that don't like it.

Must be the yellow although I don't know if anyone has called mine cute. I am fairly confident that no jeeper will call yours cute. Disregard the uninformed. Unless they're smokin hot in which case you should agree with them and offer a ride!

Being a Jeep owner myself, I would not use the word cute to describe a rig, but do not take the term "cute" to be derogatory. It is a females way of saying that it is appealing to her. When we say that a guy is cute, it does not mean that he is not manly, handsome, or built. It just means that we like the way he looks.

When they say its cute, roll with it. Bottom line is you are talking to a girl, which I find enjoyable and sometimes quite fun.

Cute jeep you have there.lol..when I was looking for a jeep,the last color I wanted was yellow..so of course I find a mint unmolested,unwheeled rubicon...and yes it was yellow.i bought it anyways but have always hated the color.i want to paint it black or a dessert tan someday which will make it look alot better..in your case,I would say ditch those rims and turn the white lettering on the tires to the inside.it would look alot better..then get it dirty and maybe put a scatch it it...and some armor...and then...????

I'd throw a stinger on and do the mean looking eyes, I've wanted to do it for awhile now. I like the Smittybilt xrc stinger but to each his own.

Haha well thanks everyone, I'm having my buddy make me a bumper out of diamond plate and he's gonna fabricate his own stinger. Also I think once I order all the lights I need it'll look a little more beefy. When they call my ducky cute depending on the person I take it as a compliment haha all depends

Post pics once you get it all together. And it all depends on what she looks like. Just ask her if she wants to play with rubber ducky. Lol.

Haha when a girl says a guys vehicle is "cute" the guy should certainly take it as an insult, but coming from a ride or die jeep/Chrysler girl, your wrangler is far from "cute". It's bad ass I love it!

Sick rig for sure, but in my opinion chrome doesn't belong on a jeep.

Better Backspaced rims for a wider stance if those aren't backspaced already? Other than that and the chrome someone mentioned before, that thing looks badass

Post pics of these broads making these derogatory comments about your Jeep.

Better yet, post pics of them washing the mud off your rig.

Yeah I will post pics I've put a few minor upgrades to it, mostly interior (floor mats, seat covers, steering wheel cover, and 2 12in Jensen subs comp series) I got my lighting brackets on it but might be selling them because when I get my taxes back I'm just gonna get new bumpers on it plus the offroad lights.. I wanted to do a halo kit on the headlights what color would y'all think would look best? I was thinking either between red, blue, or bright white. If I did the red I would give my headlights the "evil eyes" look... Anyone throw suggestions at me I got an open mind!

I find flat paint, bumpers like stingers and flat or tube fenders are not cute to most females.
