Question and a Suggestion

Hey bud, thanks for the link to your thread. I have got to say you have got probably the most amazing rig that I have yet to see. I've seen many comments that people are saying "I don't like this or I don't like that", but it's not theirs, it's yours! We do what WE want to them right!?!?

Do you order your stickers from a specific place or shop around? I got a couple of zombie stickers also and looking to add more. I was also wondering if you have thought about repainting the Coils to match the color of the Beast instead of blue? Not that anything is wrong with it as is. I bet the those springs would really stand out under there if they were green though, either way still awesome job.

I can't wait till I get my rig fixed up like I want it. I used to have a 2000 Jeep wrangler with a 3" suspension and 3" body running 35x14.5 super swampers on 15" beadlocks. My uncle and I geared front and rear to 4:10's after I shredded the stock 3:73 ring and pinion for the 2nd time. That poor jeep went thru hell and back a few times but I loved it lol.

Here's a videoing suggestion for ya, I have a Phantom 2 Vision + (it's not a toy) that I will be using to video and take pictures when we hit up the trails in the future. You should take a look into one man, they are amazing. You could send it up in the sky and let it hover while you did your thing (stays in that spot due to GPS and sensors) or have someone control it if needed. I actually have 2 in case one goes down, something happens to one, multiple angles or in case someone wants to buy one. They are very easy to fly and can give you some awesome pictures or even 1080 HD video. I don't have any videos of the jeep yet, but you can check out some of my videos here of what it can do. I bet the videos would look awesome watching your rig in action from up above.

Anyways, super nice Jeep man, I subscribed to your youtube channel and looking forward to more vids. It's been a while since I was into this stuff and looking to get back now that I got another Jeep. Thanks for the post and ideas.

gotcha, and i believe it. i heard from someone down here that when she mounted her's she didn't need wheel weights at all... was just curious if you needed less weight.

Zombicon sounds better but it has been used by a few people already and I haven't seen one with Hulkon but I'm sure there's one out there
