^ It's not for sale. The Stitch is a concept vehicle to demonstrate how light a JK could be.

I like it! Very cool idea for weight savings. Would be easy to change color - just rewrap it . . .

drops the weight to 3,000 lbs. same weight as a yj. so, just buy a yj.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

Let's see, YJ 3000 lbs and 180 hp or Stitch 3000 lbs and 285 hp? Still take the YJ?

That's like saying this chocolate and this soggy piece of bread have the same calories, so why not take the soggy piece of bread.
