    I must be missing something here......

    According to the ad, this is listed as "cheap". I know this cost a lot to build and all but I don't think cheap fits this

    I think "cheap" means he spent way more on it than the $38k and is losing his butt on this. Interesting, but...WHY?!

    I think many people ask the same of our TWs! To each there own, to me, completely useless, almost all bolt on cosmetic stuff. I am eyeing a sxs or two up quad as my next addition to the stable (I think the two up quad is winning, becuse I can haul it in a pick up and it is legal on 50" trails in MI and other states with width restrictions).

    I see a lot of custom SxS around here but this one has been the most expensive so far. I wouldn't even want to get that one dirty at the price on it though lol

    My stepbother just got this motor in for his Jeep CJ hillclimber. I think he will have $38k into the jeep, but he isnt afraid to get it dirty and it will probably wheel stand by the time he is done. This is the before pic, small block, now he is going full race susprension and 500hp 502. He is a bit of a lunatic.crate motor 3.pngjeep 3.png

    You're not missing anything - that is a dumb SxS at a dumb price.
