Is that thing on a Comanche unit body frame or is it just a comanche body on something else?
yes it is a mj
mj's have a unibody under the cab and a unibody/frame section behind the cab because the bed was designed to be removable

haha
no it doesnt have a current inspection, but the plates are real so that i could carry insurance incase anything ever happened
it also lets me drive it for short distances on the street incase the parking isnt at the trail head, not that i couldnt get sited for major violations but atleast it cant get impounded for driving without tags
you are welcome to come by anytime


and thanks for all your comments guys

Ever have a problem with revoking your registration because you havent gotten it inspected? Im not positive but ive heard they can do it. Never seen it done either. I work at a station and i thought i heard that rumor floating around. Or maybe something like when you go to renew it you wouldnt be able to??? I dont know...

Are any of the trials you go on with Freedom novice level or something i could do in my truck. Im getting sick of the mud, looking for more of just trails but i took a ride by one i used to go to and now its posted. I would think about joining if it would be worth it for me. Right now my truck has a 3inch body lift with 295's (33.4x11.6ish) my wheel base is 141.5(i beleive) kinda long for some of the trials from the looks of the site.

we do have easier runs some months
i guess a truck could make it, but i doubt it comes out in the shape it went in

Always nice to see some wheeling on this site.... Looks like a great time, do you have any future plans/upgrades for your rig or are you just going to try and enjoy being able to finally wheel it for a while?

What are the specs on that Green Grand in the link you posted?
