I like that grassy field your offroading in HA.
Just kidding, all these cars/trucks look awesome , guess my car isnt worthy. I never thought I would get flamed harder in a forum like this than in the MKV forum where the only thing acceptable is sitting your frame on the ground.
Guess Ill go back to lurking
*** Back to cool pictures of Real Offroad vehicles ***
I DESPISE this mentality about Vortex. So what you're (I don't mean YOU but the general mentality of the forum) saying is that EVERYBODY has to conform to ONE predetermined standard or piss off and that they won't be welcomed because they don't hit all the check marks to be on the "cool kid list".
Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but where do people get this elitist, closed minded sense of arrogance that their way is the only acceptable way to do things? It's absolutely infuriating and is why I hardly use Vortex anymore. Overall I think THIS particular forum has been much more open minded and enjoyable to participate in so DON'T RUIN IT; because seriously, who are you to tell someone their idea is stupid. "Not offroad capable enough" for who? You!?!
I agree this wasn't get best thread to introduce that car in, perhaps an intro thread explaining its intended use would have prevented some of the flaming (which is largely uncalled for anyways). If the dude wants to stray from what is acceptable according VORTEX standards then let him and don't bring the dude down because YOU don't like it.
Do whatever you want with the car! Rallycross it, make a sort of expedition vehicle out of it. I think the idea is cool. Keep us posted on what you do to the car!

Reminds me of a long time ago with my first bunny, someone broke the vent window to get in my car and eat a burrito. They left my tools, stereo, spare change, and left their burrito wrapper and salsa on the dash.
@ nastyhabit16v and for anyone else that would like to see there is a build thread/.

when talking about the deuces it means having one of the axles "bobbed" or cut off
when talking about truck beds it means having it shortened. giving your rig better approach angles.
thats why you see the majority of rock crawler yotas or anything of the sort with a super tiny bed. they also "dove tail" beds making the bed more narrow in the rear than the front of the bed.
