Would Anybody Be Caught Dead Driving This?

General consensus. Is this in bad taste, or am I just boring?
I think it's hysterical. The only thing that would make this more laughable, is if it were one of those old Renegades with all the plastic trim(not the new one).

But I'd cruise around in one.

Brodies Wrangler looks like the evil monster from a sci-fi movie. That might be why he's on the ground in front of it. The Jeep scared him out of his pants.
Not an opinion, just an observation.

"There ain't no countin' for taste". People do what pleases them. Who am I to judge.
The person that owns the Jeep in OPs post might think my YJ is homely.

I try to live in a live and let live world. Looking at some of the pics, makes me want to own an auto accessory shop. I'll bet none of those things came cheap.

Good Luck, L.M.

Google Jeep rat rod, click images. There are too many to try to post pics. Many will leave you speechless, sometimes good sometimes not.

It is certainly bright. I watch all of the car shows, and I appreciate the craftsmanship and engineering that goes into finishing the job. I still wouldn't drive 90% of those restorations. We live in a car culture, and people express their individuality in different ways.
