Looks like some computer generated pic of that Jeep unless they changed it up.

The coils and steering are different and the bike and possible bike rack on the rear seems suspect. They may have started chroming it.

It's be a safe bet they had stuff chromed... As for the rack, it's there in another picture an it's probably there to carry around the enormous jack stands. I'm guessing here but it probably has air shocks in the front and if it's on display at a show they probaby have to set it on the jackstands for safety reasons...

What's with the POS DV8 half doors being mounted higher up?

There's really some nice fab work on this monstrosity. Body and paint too. Not my taste. But someone dropped a lot of money on this.

I'd ship it to Australia and the Mighty Car Mods guys. I can picture Moog dancing on the hood.

Is this what we'd call a sex spec'd Jeep?

Probably. Definitely tacky...which I think is what "sex spec" was all about. That was a bit after my time so my knowledge is limited.

I see shit like this on a daily basis.

I am sorry to hear that. Seriously.

Sometimes it makes me ashamed that I also own a JL.

While I'm a bigger fan of the classic Jeep look and therefore pre-2007 vehicles, I've never found the JK/JL Jeeps to be particularly unattractive in stock form. And while @macleanflood is probably right on the amount/quality of fab work based on a photo, I feel like they've just taken a decent looking vehicle out of the womb and made it much less attractive for what is likely a sizeable chunk of loot.

This one's got yours beat...

You might be onto something there. Personally, I've got issues with pink, a color best left in nature...way too Barbie dream home shit...
