I subscribe to the train of thought that mud is a perfectly acceptable accent color in a jeep.

I like the pistol grip style myself, the brass knuckles seem complex to use often, ya know. like your hands on the shifter the ya hit a bump and at the least you pop out of gear or at the worst you bust your knuckle. As for accenct color, Id say go outside dig a few holes in your or your neighbors yard and pick your favorite.

This was a direct bolt on, well after I drilled 16 holes in it and welded a $20 receiver into it. All in it was 12 bucks for the steel 9 for bolts and 3 for paint and I gues you could say I spent 2 of welding wire. $46 and 3 hours work and i dont have a pro shop by any means.

Industrial grey is fitting for almost anything. BTW, I don't see a nitrous button on the shifter. It's just not assembled. Right? I just advocate NO2 for when you're late for church.

I always thought the nitrous buttons were rediculous but then I found a use for the knob and had one rebranded for my uses.



Anyone guess what it does?

I think rust always makes a good accent color on a CJ.

And those brass knuckle knobs are rather silly, IMO. They scream "teenage kid" to me.

Great way to bust/dislocate one/several fingers on the trail though!

Figured the Choo Choo would give away a train horn. My two year old nephew is pretty good with that word association. The cow says.... MOO!!
