    For sure adds character.

    A while ago some dude in a jeep was like “Do you ever off-Roa…. Dam man, your sliders are dented?” I proudly replied with, yeah man, I off-road the snot out of it.. He seemed equally proud of my dents haha.

    And the majority of the crowd rolls their eyes and shakes their heads. It’s a lot about doing something silly in an inappropriate vehicle and enjoying the trip.

    I don't ever get that reaction unless it's from guys that actually know, most of the time it's wow your truck is pretty beat up. Especially when my whole right side is semi pancaked. Now the taco wheeler hauls the XJ crawler. I really get stares now. Even a few thumbs up and waves from the troopers. The taco build is far from over.

    That’s awesome. I keep wanting a dedicated crawler but I still wanna build and wheel the taco. Just not sure which to give the most priority to lol.

    So I didn't get the heep until I had the taco about where I want it. The heep is already really built so it just needs some tidying up and not a lot of $$$ thrown at it. I'm continuing to pour money into the taco and plan stuff while make more long term goal/build for the heep and am just going to enjoy it and beat it more. I got a killer deal from my buddy since he hadn't wheeled it in forever after getting his new rig.

    I wasn't a fan of my turd gen stalling on me (auto) when on an incline. Sold her and now have a dedicated crawler(DD capable) and tow rig.

    Nicely done! I've always wondered how some setup with HH seems to have more articulation than others I've seen also with HH with shock relocate?
