Looks like the amount of mods on that thing, would be more than getting a JK or JKU stock Rubicon.

No way. Stock Subaru AWD system, all that, and only 30" tires. A neat project, but not a good investment if you ask me. Turning a car into something it will never be.

A stock TH with a ton of those camping and showy accessories is probably still a more capable rig.

Right? But he's likely paid a small fortune for them too. Breaking ground isn't cheap.

All of that... and still no low range.

The lift and tires work, but that's only half of the equation.

Ask @Tyler-98-W68 how that works out.
He did a bunch of work on a Jeep Compass. Looked great, but I think he said was still nothing like his new TH.

I'm liking that rear cargo system he's got though. And those bumpers, and that rear tire/cargo mount.

I'm kinda jealous... Lol

I'm surprised that the rubber bands in the transmission haven't snapped, carrying all that extra weight!
