That is a 151 Jeep 4seater.

LQ9/TH400/Atlas 14bolt's Front & Rear, ARB's, 43in SX's, 2.5 King's w/air bumps.

2 6ft adult's can fit in the back seat with head clearance, while wearing full 5 point harness'. These car's even have "drink" holders in the back seat area...

definitely more pictures needed are the 4 seaters the same width as a 2 seater? How much fuel does it hold?

Not yet. The Top Shelves are still a few weeks out from being started, we've been burried in existing 2 & 4 seat orders.

Once they're started photo's will be added to the lineup. Until then we're doing as much destructive testing on #1 to make sure the production cars are perfect out of the box.

Awesome. #1 has got to be my favorite rig I have ever seen. Looking forward to seeing the production models.

Hows the packaging for rocks and 47" LTB's look on the 4 seat 151 chassis? Shopping around for a chassis for my new build, with fullwidth rocks and 4wheel steer.

From some basic measurments it will work, but due to the "top load" resign would raise the car approx 6in over a car built on 60's or the like.

John's had his rig to finish it for the last 6 months, last we heard it was running but haven't seen anything on it ourselves since it left here. Which is what the last pic's posted look like.

All I've got is what's posted here. We didn't do much documentation on that build.

And Top Shelves 4&5 are in progress.

Derek told me the narrowest WMS he would try with his 4 seater is 64 wms. He recommended full widths to me. I had a 63 WMS 14 bolt and a 64 WMS 60 that I am swapping back into standard width housings.

I am sure that he will chime in but hopefully that helps.
