I know, it's a friend from our local club, Baltimore 4 Wheelers, but I still haven't had the chance to see it in person yet.. Awesome rig though!

EDIT: Here is his partial build "fixin some stuff" thread:

Got a little work done today on the rocker guards. Going to take them to a fab shop to have them bent. Hopefully I'll have them done by next weekend.





I was so scared that this wouldnt come out right, but it fits nicely with no gaps.

Had to work half of the day so I didn't get much work done. Got the tailgate mounted and cut some holes for the tail lights. Also finished drilling holes for the corner armor. Once I get the lights I'll clean up the holes a little better for a tight fit.

What color are you going to paint it?

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

Some shade of orange with black accessories. House of Kolor has some colors that I like, but their paint is pretty pricey for a trail rig. Looking at a few Ford and GM colors. Right now I'm learning towards a regular orange like this one:

No. Regular orange . I once saw a JK painted with the Lambo. Orange. It was kinda neat...

Thats one of the colors I was looking at and the reason why I'm thinking of going with a regular orange. I also like the orange that the Ford Edge, Honda Element and Mitsubishi Eclipse have. Been looking at Summit Racing's new paint. It's single stage and can be clearcoated. Here's a link to their two oranges.

I really like that color too, one of my friends has a mustang that color. Just another one to add to the list to make it harder to choose.

Maybe it's just the picture or the monitor, but that color is terrible. It looks like a shade of lipstick you'd find in 1987. I was waiting for the lei and the stuffed animal with a graduation cap thingy hanging from the rear view mirror.

I think the old Dodge orange works well, much like the new Challengers come with.

Probably just the monitor. It looks a little different in person. Some oranges never seem to look right on a computer.

Thats kind of what I'm leaning towards, similar to the Ford comp orange.
