Looks awesome!

Are you ditching the Zuzu logo from the grill? I just ask because I am looking for one Lol

I'm getting ahead of myself on my project but how well does the rig handle those tires? Is it stock with the 2.6? Did it require lift? The reason I ask is the tire size, ride height etc looks like what I'd eventually like to get mine too if the engine and tranny are up to it.

Fantastic looking vehicle!

I was planning on lifting it, but the tires don’t rub all without one. So I decided not to. It seems to handle the larger tires just fine. It’s a 2.3 with a manual transmission.
