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've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

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!

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.

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!!
