      Better pictures will come, along with 29 inch tires.

      But know this is a front wheel drive car therefore it wont be rock crawling. But thats coming from someone who calls what rally cars do "offroading" (for the most part)

      Well, this is the "4x4" subforum so people expect to see vehicles with actual four wheel drive. Vortex definitely isn't the place for people who want to be different, I guess you're not low enough for the MKV forum and you're not offroad capable enough for here.

      I was confused I guess. I thought I read "4x4 and Offroading" on the heading. And thats what I use my car for, going "off road" to get to climbing destinations. But again I guess off road driving and offroading are different. I can see that now. I posted without thinking, I was excited that I found a place that might accept me wanting to make my car more capable. Again I guess I was wrong.

      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!

      This is why I posted; from OP "Please keep content offroad or 4x4 related."

      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.
