It is purpose built for off roading. Not going fast.

Save people from clicking

Off-Roading TiresWhy you need them: “Bigger tires equal better grip on varying surfaces.” Think hiking boots vs. sneakers.

Lifted SuspensionWhy you need it: “Lifted suspension gives more ground clearance, making it easier to surpass obstacles that would damage the undercarriage of a normal vehicle.” That maddening scrape you hear when you traverse something you thought your vehicle could clear: that’s what we’re trying to avoid here.

Roll CageWhy you need it: “Roll cages are for extra safety and protection for you and the occupants.” Hopefully you’ll never need this to perform what it’s intended for — but if you’re gettin’ serious about off-roading, fortune favors the prepared.

WinchWhy you need it: “To pull yourself out of any really sticky situations. In reality you will probably end up helping others out of sticky situations in their Jeeps.” A win-win situation. Either you get yourself out of a bind or you get to play the bad a** hero who saves the day for someone with a sub-par set of off-roading wheels.

Fire Extinguisher
Why you need it: See Roll Cage.

I don't think we will ever build a truck that anybody/everybody on here likes.

At least the customers who design them do, that's all that matters hey?

Then why do you care what others think? If you are building something, making money and are happy with the result then why worry about our opinions?

I'm sure it drives fine. Just the bolt on crap and jacked up look looks horrible and has no style, but this is just my personal opinion. There are thousands of trucks built just like that I see every day, so lots of people like that sort of thing...

I'm not overly concerned with opinions, I just can't help wanting to defend our business and product. Many of our customers like the bolt on crap as you call it, if they want it we will fit it. Some want plain old classic trucks, to them we won't push Kahn body kits.

I won't be able to help myself, every time there is a post with our name, I'll be on it. I'm not a complete dick and out looking for an argument, just like to join the discussions when we are involved.

What gauges are in this truck? I have asked before for a close up of the instrument cluster on one of your puma dash builds.

Do you use the puma gauges or something else?
