Think of Snoop Lion like a Snoop Dog, but with square glasses. (you have to have been a jeep owner at some point to get that)

"On July 31, 2012, Snoop introduced a new stage name, Snoop Lion. He told reporters that he was rechristened Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest in Jamaica."

Someone paid a lot of money to look like that.

Talking about crazy, I can't understand why someone would put 30" rims on a truck made for off roading.

Or painting a truck with matte paint that stains, etc... Big wheels are nothing compared to a lot of dumb things put on trucks meant to go off road.

I imagine that the brakes are stock adding, oh, probably 200 feet to the stopping distance. Also, I cannot imagine driving that on the streets. If they are anything like the roads around here, he is going to bend/ break a wheel due to all of the potholes.

Cone on they improve the ride on the road. I mean bone jarring impacts from hitting that little lip pulling into the driveway is fun right? Yes I'm being sarcastic

But is it any worse than this one? I talked to the PO one day and asked him how it did off road. He replied that he bought it off a car dealer about 6 prior and hadn't taken it 4 wheeling yet. "In fact" he said "I hadn't even put it in 4 wheel drive yet." "That's a god thing" I said "because it is only 2 wheel drive, see no front diff, just a stright axel" He looked at me like I was crazy then I told him to look and see if he had a transfer case shifter - nope. It is up fore sale again, it probably keeps getting passed around to clueless Jeepers. Too funny.

I think it's very clever what they have done to that J**p.
Quite clearly it is totally theft proof...
No one in their right mind would steal it. They could leave it running with the doors open and no one would lower themselves enough to approach it....

There was a Taco that got stuck on my street once. Nothing like trying to turn around on a sheet of ice. It was missing the shifter and front driveshafts. When the driver called her Daddy, I got to speak to him and break the bad news. He was dumbstruck.

FWIW, before I could get my truck out, a tractor came by....

You guys are too funny. However, I must say, when I did some wheeling last year, the only thing that was better than my D90 was a Rubicon. The next time that I wheel with one of those guys, I got to have my ARB set up.
