That's what I was saying the whole time, the Jeep unibody is totally a crappy and weak body to have 20 inches of lift and monstrous tires.

Worst thing I ever saw was a jeep with unimog axles and they were DIRECTLY attached to the unibody- this thing will turn into a lump of shredded pork!

These photos bring to mind a teenage John Holmes, there was more invested in rubber than the ride was worth.

Yeah not my absolute dream either, though I drool every time I see an XJ with a V8.

Unfortunately, I think the St Helens mud run is getting shut down. One of the few left. Damn environmentalists
