    You could add lights all across the stinger. :D

    I think it's the blue color I like the most. If it had a Dana 60 front and a winch, I'd probably be scheming a way to sell things and go buy it right now.

    Sorry, i was being facetious. I'm not big on multiple roof lights, Bushwackers, and the stinger looks kinda goofy to me. The color is cool though, I also like blue.

    I was gonna post about how nice looking it was and how with a more street friendly tire it'd make a wicked DD...and then I realized that if I bought it I'd be taking it down Jeep trails 20 minutes after the purchase and I'd have four doors to rip off instead of just two. :doah:

    Yeah, the stinger is a bit much. But I don't mind the Bushwackers or lights. I'm a big fan of pointless accessories sometimes. :p:

    It would mainly be a street rig anyway looks like.

    Yeah, I agree... too nice for me too. People always say I should get a "nice" rig. I always say why? I'd rather drive a beater that way if something bad happens to it, it's not a big loss.

    Tht rear bumper would have to go. The lights would simply be victims of a low branch...

    yeah ditch the body lift, fender flares, both bumpers, all the lights, the spoiler on the roof at the back and cut the fenders out and you've close to a decent suburban.
