On other forums I have frequented, what you have just started, Bhudda, is typically called a TROLL. That's where someone does a controversial thread with the sole intent of stirring things up. I really don't mind trolls too much. I just say my piece and carry on.
Funny you should mention this, too. I was thinking about starting a thread about how anyone could build a Jeep made entirely of aftermarket parts now.
Question is: If one did something like that, would it be a Jeep?
I know the custom motorcycle industry is thriving. Builders are making "Harley-style" motorcycles and selling them under various other names. My quandry is what would I call MY rig, if there weren't any Jeep parts left in it?
Bhudda, you are totally within your rights to worship Jeeps, even the ones with inferior parts. No feathers ruffled here, but you will have trouble convincing me and many other foks that a AMC rear end is better than a Dana 60.
