If it's the same one I'm thinking of, the owners name is Clifton Slay and he works for Avalanch Engineering in CO.

I've ran into him a few times on trails. Nice trail rig, but i sure wouldn't wanna drive it on the road at speed. From what I recall, the back half of the frame has been removed and tubed. The floors are all cut out and replaced with iron mesh type stuff for easy access to t-case/tranny. One ton axles, 42" tires I think. Hydraulic steering, coilovers.....
Very capable rig on the trail from the little I've seen of it.

Personally I like the fact that he grafted FJ40 foot vents in the tub. I guess every Jeep needs a bit of cruiser parts to be really bad ass!!!!!

My buddy did this using vents off a big rig. One of these days I'm a gonna build me a custom dash using a switch panel out of a big rig dash. If you look in big rig junk yards, some of them have some cool interior stuff that can be used on Jeeps.

Hahahahah too funny. That thing is bad ass, but I want to know why he went away from the 1/4 ellip setup he had in there from Avalanche? I guess the coil overs work better? or maybe the Avalanche setup really is a POS like everyone says.

I'm sure being that high off the ground he has pretty good access to the underside. Most people put expanded metal in the floor so they can see through it. Example if you get high centered on you cross member you can just look down and see how bad you are stuck, which is what I'm assuming he is doing in the pic.

True, what I fogot to mention is that there is a "trap door" in the floor to access the t-case/tranny. I would also assume to mesh is for visibility.
