hey sparrows! I love the idea of the 2.5 stroker! it's kind of like what that tdi-yj guy did only with a jeep motor, I like it! Good luck!


ok, now devils advocate: if'you're gonna be a sleeper, why go with a predator
paint job? doesn't that scream "I'VE BEEN MODIFIED!" ??

just sayin'...

goodluck either way, just seems like two completely different directions to me

Lmao!
I think I may paint the rear armor green too? And just do the flares and sliders black? Or do it up just like that...

I like those fenders too. But I would want to run some kind of rear fender as well.

Execute the armor correctly and aluminum will hold up great.

You need the right grade, right thickness, and right support. Take a look at how Savvy Offroad does things and do it similarly. I use aluminum everywhere--corners, sliders, tailgate, transfer case skid. Hell, even my control arms are aluminum but you don't have to worry about those.
