Think this has ever been offroad?

Recommended Posts

I have two questions......think there is much road noise?  How much does one of these wheels weigh (with proper inflation)?

That's a serious amount of money into a Jeep.

Those mods are so that he can park up on the median at the mall so that no one will dent his doors.

That is an every day thing in Texas. Giant tires, an extra foot or more of ground clearance. I think it looks stupid. It's also really annoying to have someone's headlights at eye level when driving a car or even a stock SUV like my 2002 Toyota 4Runner. It should be against the law to have headlights that high. It's a safety hazard. And stupid.

Around here I believe that the only time the many 4 X 4s go "off road" is when the owners park them in their driveway.

Exactly how does tire inflation affect the weight of a wheel?

That can actually be used offroad, as silly as it looks. This on the otherhand, is the new cool thing apparently.

I like both of them.

I love Jeeps, and love trucks, and I can't drive anything stock. But I dislike both of those.

Too much show. 

 

But, if that's what someone is into, then more power to them.

Here in Fla. the maximum headlight height is 54" , that's 4'6" , most of the trucks that are jacked up are over that , automatic ticket and truck impounded , can't drive it in an unsafe condition . They're trying to keep the bumper levels in check for the safety of the general public . 

Not saying they enforce it , but they can at any time .

Umm, it doesn't.  But when you are 77 years old and just typing out some comment to go along with pictures you just posted, anything is liable to pop into your mind....

With all that garbage on it, I hope that JK has a LS? or Hemi swap so it can actually move!  The Pentastar might be over stressed and I'll bet the 3.8l would struggle with all that lard.

Show me a picture of the skid plates and I'll tell you if he's been off road.

BOTH are "Mall Rated"!!, but the Jeep is DEFINITELY better for off-road use!!

Don't bash these guys too hard. There are folks like this in every genre of the automotive world. 

I encountered a fellow at a car show with a '68 Barracuda with a twin turbo 383 pro-street. I asked him how fast it was, how many horsepower, ETA's etc. His answer for all was, "No idea. She gets driven locally to shows and trailered to all the rest." I walked away thinking, what a waste of time and money, to build something capable of screaming down a drag strip, but it's never even done a burnout.

I see it all the time. I've been to the NHRA Southeast Street Rod Nats for years and there's as many trailers in the parking lots as there are cars on the grass. 

At least that Jeep is getting driven.

It's all in the eye of the beholder.  I do not care for them. But I am sure their owners do, and really, that's all that matters.

Take a lot of beer holding to make that look good in my eyes.

For me,less is more...I have a 2000 Cherokee.It is lifted 6 inches,and riding on 35s.I do have a custom front bumper.But other than that,the truck looks stock.I hate all the extra LED lights guys are using.They are very annoying.I love Jeep's,but I don't like them when they are over done,with every known mod out there.And now they have a grill,that makes your head lights look mad.....Are u kidding me with that?Simple,and clean,that's the ticket.Again,Jeep's are great...For the most part.And I don't mean the new Jeep's.Jeep has dropped the ball when it comes to great vehicles.To me the only Jeep now,are the Wranglers.Actually that's the way it has been for a long time.The XJs saved Jeep back in the day.They are great trucks now,when you find the right one.

In Texas, who has the right of way at a 4 way stop sign? "The truck with the biggest tires!"

Wouldn't want to drive behind him  in traffic. With no fenders covering the tires he would do a great job throwing gravel back at you.

It's not just automotive. At a lot of motorcycle events such as Sturgis/Laconia, you can get pins/patches that say "I rode my bike to trailer week".

It's a Bro-Dozer, the only time it goes off road is when he parks it on grass.
