X2, the only people who think ridiculously large trucks with ridiculously large lifts are cool are the douchebags who drive them. They can't even offroad for shit even when they're left 4WD. My Jeep on 31's can outwheel any newer ridiculously lifted truck I see with 37's and 40's and shit.

True dat. Lifted trucks are like the hybrid from h***. They're too tall and expensive (and you can't get them dirty!) to do real work, and they're too big and clumsy (and you can't get them dirty, again) to go offroading in them. About the only thing they're marginally good for is towing, and even then they tow like crap.

Here is my snowboarding vehicle. I find that a 4 x 4 truck isn't enough of a challenge to get up a mountain.

That is true. I like trucks but I not a fan of show trucks. It seems strange to spend a lot of money on a suspension lift and at the same time make it less capable by eliminating 4WD. To each there own though. When my Jeep was also on 31's it was still very capable and very difficult to get stuck on most trails.

That looks to be in good shape to you? Wow, I would've been calling the junk yard. Then again, I don't even change my own oil.

I'm sure it's only apart like that because it's being worked on. I have a picture of my Jeep missing half its front end that you would probably say the same about, but I just had some serious engine work to be doing.

I would say that's a pretty clean Bug
