    Here's what I'm thinking....
    unimog 416 with all the upgrades
    custom tube frame
    narrowed BODY not just front and rear.
    90 degree approach and departure angles
    some sort of monster... diesel, twin turbo big block, etc..
    th400 and stak
    42 inch pitbulls or something similar
    full family cage...
    what else is important to you guys? If all goes well I could actually afford this in a year or 2.

    Holy smokes you do still come around. After you became a mod I haven't seen much of ya'. Have you seen the truck for sale in the complete section? It has the axles and such you are looking for maybe you could chat with him and save yourself some time when it comes time to build it up....

    How narrow are those? It looks like it would flex well except for clearance issues, looks pretty cool though for a Jeep.

    why are some of you choosing rockwells over mogs? And are the mog u1300's better than the 416's?
    I'd still like to seat 4 or more and have the metal body... I like the idea of denting it :D You can't really dent fiberglass the same way.

    'cause Rockies are all American... not some eurotrash poopoo. ;) :thumb: :grin:

    I really like what Ouverson is doing with the Rocky aftermarket.. and ground clearance would be just fine with one of them aftermarket skids and 53" michelins.

    From a pure performance stand point, I guess it doesn't make complete sense to choose rockies over mogs.... but then again you could say the same thing about sheetmetal and seating for 4+...
