What I plan to do when I get one is some medium off-roading. Nothing to extreme just some fun stuff, although my brother may convince me to do some more extreme stuff since he has a hummer, but nothing hardcore at first. I like all the diamond plating and would probably add it to a regular SW if I didn't get an LE.

The mods I would make would be some of the more basic stuff... winch, snorkel, lights, etc.

Randy they do still make pickles here. I actually know the guy from my old church that owns the factory.

Thanks for the replies

Sam

Even for the moderate off roader - roll a ST on its side - not much damage...

In the wreck my D90 was involved in the car flipped over on its side. Eleven months and nearly $20K later I got my D90 back.
Technically....It makes more sense to start with an SW so you can sell the top, and then use the money for the cage since you can not expect a stock cage to hold up to the abuse. Now I'm just being a jerk.

BTW: The cage looks great in person, and I just made a few changes and it looks much less cluttered.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

In the next week or so I'm gonna go look at a 90 in NC and want some advice on what I should look for on the body and when I'm driving. Thanks in advance.
