Jeep Tent... anybody have it?

So i was looking at the "Jeep Tent" and wondered if it would work with a lifted jeep. Anybody using this thing and if so, how big is your lift / tires and are you having any issues with it?
Oh, i'm not talking about the rooftop version either.
Pics maybe?

Are you talking about the one that funnels leftover exhaust fumes directly into your sleeping area? Those are sweet.

Wait, you have a Jeep mountain bike? Shocks? Pegs? Lucky.

Nope, I've got a Jeep stroller with shocks and pegs and an MP3 player.

The thing has plenty of room, see sig for mods..

Yeah, it's a pretty decent tent. When we leave the site, I can just shut the hatch, and lock the Jeep up so nothing gets stolen. It takes less then a minute to disco the tent and shut the hatch when we take the Jeep anywhere. It'll have to do til I can afford a small camping trailer. Having the TV and stuff is nice, but having an AC would be even better!

As long as you dont buy a RV with direct tv. I mean whats the point of camping if people have everything their house has? I guess they can see things without missing anything.

You're right!

Next time I'm going to hike my 3 year old, and my wife 5 miles back in to the woods with my Buck knife, and a flint.


Seriously, what's the big deal if I watch a DVD at night and drink a 6 pack or 2. I'm not trying to catch a tv show. That's what the DVR is for!

Yeah you're right on that point. I have no expirence with bringing kids or a wife camping. So I change my remark, but still that tent is cool.
