Re: WINNERS!

give it up for Pat for the January win!

-Rear spool and alloy shafts for guaranteed reliability
-Front Aussie and alloy shafts...may need to upgrade this to a spool this week
-Spare alloy front shafts, spare hub, spare drive shafts, spare rear 9" shaft to ensure I can make it to my mountain hideaway time and time again
-Rear-facing tater cannon (cheap, endless ammo...enough of a blow to delay a zombie)
-On-board air to allow for terrain transitions
-Puncture-resistant Super Swampers and beadlocks
-Cage that allows vehicle to survive a zombie-induced rollover and recovery with winch and FRESH SNATCH block
-Room for full-size spare, WWII Army chest full of weapons, full set of tools, camping gear and coolers for the longer adventures

I could go on and on...this is the rig you want.

Sorry for three pics...I cannot showcase the capabilities with only two:

Re: WINNERS!

87manche got the win in our February poll. function over good looks

Specs:
it a 4.0!
Mileage? Who knows, I tore the speedo cable out years ago in Uwharrie.
AX-15-231, and you don't need an SYE with a 6 foot long driveshaft
4.56's, D30-super bling 8.8
Xj leafs in the rear, no shocks for a while now, 2010 maybe? Whenever I did Lion's den, they ended up crunched.
Rubicon 4.5" junk up front.
Redheep custom steering.

A super pimp fuel cell, since I tore out the original in Moab.

No radio, hell, not much anything in the interior works these days except the heater, and that's a wife requirement.

The header panel got eaten by a tree in Harlanduring an "interesting" recovery.

The hood is bent and doesn't open without crunching the cowl panel.
Rockers? Not had those for like 3 years.
Jennie's not had a passenger side door handle for that long either.
Mirrors? Not concerned with what's behind me, the center mirror fell of the windshield too and I can't be bothered to put it back.

PIctars!

^^This probably contributed heavily to the vehicle's demise.



Copious amounts of rust and body damage, including the custom floor delete option, tons of body flex, doors that never opened or stayed closed, zero structural integrity, and everyone saying 'it'll fold like a taco!'

-unibody damage and repair. yeah it has that.
-It has went through the full progression from stock, to "light" wheeler, to trail rig to bastardized Xj-buggy
-still street legal with plates and insurance
-Wheels more trails in one year than a-lot of rigs do in their entire lives
