I’ve been seeing a quite a bit of advertisement for them recently. Appears to be still very much a Willy’s based vehicle with leaf springs, short wheelbase and small engine. I thought I caught something about a team building one for KOH too, but can’t imagine much being left of the original rig. They look cute, seem like they would be a decent farm runabout rig.

I've just been looking into them a bit. The price certainly is appealing. The little 2.5l diesel sounds intriguing and it'll be no time before someone unlocks the electronic speed limiter. Wait until companies start to make lifts, bumpers and all the aftermarket stuff and they'll be even that much more appealing. You could probably have one ready to crawl just about anything for the same price you'd pay for a bone stock jeep, maybe less.

I see them, the concept intrigues me. They're marketed as a SXS. Not street legal. That being said, they'd be fun for a farm runabout, etc... but nowhere near SXS performance for = dollars. Bill, there is already a company tuning them.

They look like the offspring of a Jeep and SXS. How long before we see them running the Rubicon?

Lifestyles Honda in Mount Vernon has a few of them. It's not much more than a Willys flatfender with a diesel. They look like fun, but not in a fast way.

Jesse Haines has one for the 4600 class of KOH this coming February. A front shackle reversal, longer springs and portals are on the list. The day it was delivered we looked at it and there isn't much to take off to improve the weight. However, Mahindra already has a 180+ horsepower tune that drops in and the 62 horses it has are pretty effective in stock mode. The donor rig for Jesse came with an M8000, a KC HiLites LED lightbar and not much else. It's very spartan and given the opportunity to tune the motor would make a great trail rig with a set of front/rear links and some coilovers.

This rig has been judged by two generations of Haines builders.

Nothing flatfender about it. It's a CJ7.

That rig + a $300 Craigslist CJ title/VIN and you're golden. :f2:

To be street legal would require airbags, seatbelts, a plethora of other safety and emissions equipment and all sorts of other crap. This gets them around that.... for now.

The body, yes; but have you crawled underneath one? I don't argue on the internet but it looked like a flatfender to me.
