I actually like the extra width of the jeep. I've always thought somebody should make a body that covers the tires completely. Less need for mud flaps, and all the CJs need more room inside.

But I can't believe it wheels that good. Having a 454 has to make it nose heavy, and thirsty.

I'm sure he gets looks every where he goes (the lime green paint doesn't hurt).

It sure would be a blast running across some flat land!

Hence the THREE gas tanks!! probably takes that much to get to the next gas station.
Sure does look neat though! I liked the term "hummer this"

My thoughts exactly. I like the fact that my Jeep is narrow because I can squeeze it down narrow trails. I think that fat Jeep looks weird. Just my opinion.

When I'm on the trails, it's obvious that the skinnier the better, not to mention the length issue.

But that thing wouldn't make it on many of the east coast wooden trails.

I can just imagine that monster running all out on an open road out in the West some where.......... give me some straight road, let that 454 breathe...... and drink some gas!! ha ha...

...... oh wait.... how about some sand dunes??!!

I saw one like that a few years back in a mag. I thought the one in the mag was blue but it sure did look just like that one. I don't know how it would work on the trails but he's doing a good job at stuffing those meats.....

looks like another proud member of the "More money than Brains club"! looks like he did a good job, but not my cup of tea...but Id own it if it wsa given to me after all it is a Jeep.
Also notice he is willing to trade for a buggy? Wonder if he realized that its limitations is a inability to wheel in tight spots? But it would be fun on the beach
Thanks for posting

It always amuses me to see rigs like that. They watch the little ATVs go places we can only look at, because they're so small and light. Then they build bloated, ground-crushing monster machines.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
