Too clean and to me it looks like it would snap doing anything.A buddy of mine had an old Scout with 44's and he won all the local mud bog crap.His Scout was trailer driven and never stret legal.I guess my problem is that I buy every Jeep with money in mind.I never buy a Jeep and lose money when I fix them up.I would never buy it,I just thought it was overkill for the owner to lose money.

I'll use my internet degree in psychology to explain this:

What we have here is the result of Jeep Dysmorphic Disorder (JDD). JDD is a type of chronic mental illness in which you can't stop thinking about a flaw with your Jeep's appearance and/or function a flaw that is either minor or imagined. While desire to modify one's Jeep is normal and modifications can be numerous, when you have JDD, you intensely obsess over your Jeep's appearance, never satisfied with any modification done. When you have JDD you may seek out modifications to try to "fix" your perceived flaws with your Jeep at any expense, but you never will be satisfied. In chronic cases, obsession carries over from Jeep to Jeep, with each new Jeep subjected to ever more grotesque and extreme exaggerations with the modifications in an attempt to achieve perfection. Modifications done by people with JDD may not have any practical use to anyone else.

while I agree with the "JDD" illness , that jeep wouldnt look "as bad" if it was a foot to a foot and a half lower. To me, that is ENTIRELY too much lift for those tires. that guy spent entirely too much money and willnever get that back. What is his asking price (just out of curiousity)?

As long as International doesn't make them, perhaps... Some of our work vehicles were built by International, and they were both built with an equal amount of suck, mixed with gutless-wonder and an I-don't-care attitude as far as workmanship goes.

Lifted and powered for mud bogging, but articulated for crawling?
