Good luck on the build. What city are you in? If closer to Raleigh do 4WP, if closer to Wilson check out Down East Offroad, both great shops.

Awesome.

Those 40's are sick! Props on the sweet looking rig. Commendable!

I saw the concept vehicle Jeep called the Lower Forty a few years ago. Was hoping it would get developed and hit the market.

Reading this forum made me think, how hard is re-gearing and why don't I just go with 40's.

Prob wait for 5yrs when this 2015 isn't my DD.

Those 40's are so damn cool.

Couple years ago a saw the concept Jeep they called the lower 40. I was hoping they'd develop it to hit the market.

Reading this forum made me think how hard is re-gearing and maybe I should just go with 40's.

Definitely going to consider it but not till I run this 2015 for about 5 years.

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!

I wish the Rock Hard and the PSC sport cages were combined...PSC ties to the floor but not the windshield and the rock hard ties to the windshield and not the floow.
