I understand Jeeps are the ultimate unlimited customization for many.

I've never seen a one piece bulldozer grill / bumper combination. Why, is it to be a built-in deer grill guard, i.e. functional or is that just angry eyes on steriods (serious question)?

I liked this grill because the radiator is easier to get to for cleaning. I'm in SW florida and the majority of our riding is mud/swamp/sand. Looking for a triple pass, mudder radiator (less fins per square inch for easier cleaning).

That Jeep would look awesome at the Starbucks drive thru…
I promise this jeep will never see a drive thru. It'll be lucky to see pavement, not a daily driver.

Paying 76k for a sport is awfully dumb.

What axles are they running in the Jeep?
Because it's a diesel they put Dana 44's under it, same as the Rubicon. I also had 5.13 gears put in it.

I like Jeeps but not a fan of that one.

I've got way more into this sport than 76K. Big kids gotta have hobbies and I'm blessed enough to be able to do it so why not.

I'm a huge Ford fan (currently own 20+ between fleet and personal) and have owned Broncos in the past ('94 & '96)....

I totally understand buying a fill in vehicle. This bronco waiting game has been expensive for me too purchasing other vehicles in the mean time.

I have a serious question though. How do you get that spare tire down or back on the carrier?

I'm going to remove it and leave it at camp. If I ever need it on the trail I'll send one of my boys back for it on the sidexside. Between the 2 of them they'll get it changed. Beauty of having 2 teenage sons.

Then you probably won't like what I do to my Bronco either. The uglier, the better.
Hey, whatever makes you happy as that’s what matters most. I look forward to seeing it actually!

Why not buy a 392 wrangler? If you have money to burn might as well go big or go home.
Diesel has basically the same torque as the 392 and that's what's important to me, I'm not racing it. Plus the transfer tank on my truck is full of diesel for work equipment so that works out nicely.

I would have gone diesel too. I would prefer fuel economy and torque over HP.

Did They install air lockers or on board air? Anything like that? Winch? What’s installed I that ugly beast? I only call it ugly because your ok with it. Just wait until Fab4s makes stuff for the bronco. Instead of having beauty and the beast, you will have beast and the beast.
