How about this... AVE is working for Four Wheeler Magazine on their upcoming Ultimate Adventure 2007 vehicle. They are building a completely custom JK thats housing a 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel!
I just read the article in the magazine, and get this. They use a Dodge Ram MegaCab frame that was getting sent to the crusher(unexplained as to why) and chopped a 4 foot section out of it to shorten it down to the JK's 116" wheel base.
Here are some shots from AEV's site with the motor installed.
If this is the same Jeep, they also showed it off, at Barnwell mtn. in Gilmer, TX. It runs on 42" tires.......awesome build.
That would be it! Did ya get to run the trails with them?
Those tires are sick - KM2 M/T's... made from a similar compound as the Krawler's.

No, I wasn't there, that weekend. I didn't even hear about it, until one of our club members posted these shots, on our club web site. It sure would have been neat to see that thing in action.

I think that's the first JK that I kinda like.

They need to lose that ugly ass front bumper. With something different out front I'd say that is one sick ass machine.

I know - the Fab4 front bumpers are hideous. They need a stubby up there.

I love the video of the 2006 UA where the bumper came flying off the FabFours jeep. They said "the weld broke on the frame". Uh huh...sure it did.

that orange kinda makes me sick after a while

I like the orange I just don't care for orange wheels.

Tea only if we all had that kinda money or sponsership i'd put uglyass orange wheels my Jeep too. If thats what the sponsers want let's do it.

Ha funny stuff about the bumpers. My ex brother in law is one of the owners of that company. If you knew how much they paid to be the bumper sponsor of the Ultimate Adventure you'd know why there monster heavy ass bumpers are on those rigs. :D
Note, I did say ex bro in law. I don't like any of their products either. TOOO BIG.
