A vehicle that can't keep 4 tires down any better that that shouldn't leave the pavement. Doesn't matter what crappy tires are on it or the size of the rims. Each to their own but car audio is the last thing I'd spend money on, it's also the first thing that gets shut off when I'm using my Jeeps for what their intended for. Offroading. You need to hear what's going on. Pretty and shiny, good luck with your display. Not what I'd be looking for in a Jeep, I'm sure others will love it.

I can put together one hell of a used 2 channel home audio system for $3k that will make anything you sell for vehicles sound like an old mono GM mid 60's radio.

$3k+ for car audio amp sorry its a car. Best car audio ever a 57 Ferrari 250TR.

Sorry because of the nature of a vehicles interior no matter how hard you try and how much money you spend it cant compare with a decent run of the mill 2 channel home audio system. Plus home audio has one advantage a vehicle will never be able to overcome analog and a good turntable.

Couldn't agree with you more on the analog stuff Dave. That is what we are about. We are trying to change the game of car audio. When I was a junior engineer I worked under some of the best in the business @ Hafler. Between my partner and myself, we are bringing 20+ years of that knowledge and experience to mobile audio. We use a rack of Class A and Class A/B analog goodness, turntable and all to do a/b listening tests of our mobile products that we are going to be introducing. There has been nothing like them in the 12V world. I also agree that a vehicle is a horrible environment for a good listening experience, but a great way to enjoy your commute

I love the copper badge, nice touch. Haters gonna hate, lovers gonna love. In this case, I love the ride, not practical off road but is a killer good looking WK. Nice job!

I love show cars as the builder tries sometimes outrageous stuff that I could never attempt. Once in awhile I find something I would love to do and incorporate into my ride. Everyone does 18 inch tires, been there done that, nothing innovative there (IMHO). It is nice to see a different approach. Much innovation stems from folks just going out and trying outrageous things... that sometimes just works, sometimes just don't.

That WK2 is the type that may look a lot better in person than in photos, and should draw a crowd. Opinions about that WK2 are subjective, but there is no question we admire the effort.

Keep the reports of how its working on the street and off road coming.

Everyone complaining about the wheels and tire selection and no one has said anything about the junk lift they installed to be able to use the wheels
Of course it just a mall crawler but still you'd think they would at least make it somewhat driveable

04 KJ 4.5 JBA lift, 03 KJ 2.5 JBA coilovers,

That's because there are only a couple options for the WK2 unfortunately. But for what it is the consensus seems to be that it is good.

I really have no idea what you guys are talking about with this. This is my daily driver, I drive it a minimum of 30 miles everyday, and I'm not easy on it. I haven't had any issues, tires don't rub no matter what i've tried to do with it thus far.

According to their website 32.8 x 12.3 x 20 (315/50ish/20)

It still has plenty of sidewall imo, same amount of sidewall a 30" tire on a 17" wheel has.

Looks good!!

To everyone whining about it: it's a show car. Something designed to attract attention while parked on a carpet. Not worth outfitting it for rock crawling when it's going to sit there and advertise lol
