Nice cage. I'm impressed. I know how hard it is to get all the peices in and welded all the way around. Takes some thought. Good Job!

Iím sorry, but that is with out a dought the most ridiculous ugly looking ZJ Iíve ever seen! What good is it? You couldnít even get that thing on a trailer, and it would suck on pavement on its way to where ever it would be wheeling. What a total waste of time and money. The only decent part of that whole beastly thing is the cage. Nice work on that. But every thing else is just, wrong.

Sorry, but I canít understand why some one would rape a Jeep like that.

I have every interest in going off road. That thing is just over kill. Its to damn wide / high to make it into some places I could get a stocker into. Mite as well own a Hummer if you gonna have some thing like that.

I applaud him on taking the time to do this. I know it must have taken a lot of trial and error to get every thing to work right. Its just over kill is all I'm saying. Can't drive it on the street, can't trailer it, so unless he has a huge back yard, its worthless.

jeep_on,

While you are entitled to your own opinion, try backing up your statements with facts.

Too big for a trailer? What would ever make you say that with a straight face? inexperience!?

This rig fits... guess what, just as wide and 42" tires!


Look! It is actually wheeling some where your stockers (all three of them!) won't go!



Fits! Full widths, pretty tall, sorry only 38" tires!




Actually wheeling!




Look, you don't have to like his rig one bit. However, making outrageous statements that are not even remotely close to being true is ridiculous!

Jeep on, I have to agree with the rest of them. There are plenty of places he can go that you can't. There will be the ocasional spot that he might not fit, but for the most part, he'll be fine. A buddy of mine wheels a K-5 on 40's and the local club has a soon to be member with a H1 on 42's that go down the trails just fine, and they are full width. Now they get a few more scratches on their sides, but that's about it.

There are no Hummer Recovery jokes up here anymore. He goes anywhere the Jeeps go and usually pulls the Jeeps out of their predicaments when their winches don't have enough power to free themselves.

How much trimming would I need to do to fit 42's with just a BB?

Tim,

Iím not gonna get into a pissing match over a ZJ here. Granted, that beastly thing could probably climb over a house, but it would useless in any thing other than rocks / sand. But hey, thatís what its built for right? It would be completely useless on a real trail out in the woods some where. Great for climbing a rock face, not so great to run the trails with the boys on the weekend.

Okay, you got me on the trailer thing, but look at that first ZJ (I think thatís what it is) Its not even on the deck, its got its tires up on the fenders. Iím sure that thing is real safe like thatÖ Sure it will stay there the first speed bump you go over. And the other ZJ, well ya, I totally forgot about deck-over trailer. Their nice since you donít have to worry about the fenders taking up space.

Lifted Jeep are nice, than theres just overkill.

Look at that picture again. The back tires are not on yet. When he pulls forward he will pull forward of the fenders and all will be perfect for tie down. In fact if they hit a bump the fenders will be a back up to keep it from rolling off.

Driving on the fenders to get on a trailer is something even I have had to do with my ZJ without full widths.

I advise you not to post another comment in this section.

I don't see the difference between a rock face and out in the woods...At least here in Colorado the trails in the woods have both rocks, and tree's.

The only limitation would be width on a trail, but the hard trails out here are really wide and in the open, and the easier trails are more narrow. Sure it can't drive on everything, but neither can a stocker. There is no such thing as a Jeep that can climb over everything.

Yeah he was a little wide, but he got through just fine.
