Body Damage is Cool
Driveline is every bit as strong as Gen 2 which handles 37s as we know <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> but they have pushed it further before

Driveline will handle it on snow only I suspect. Don't need a lot of travel when you are running huge tires and low psi on snow.

That's what I am thinking.

A distruction test isn't necessary but I'm curious just how thick/large the Gen III axles are versus a the Gen II SR rear & front axles?

I like the looks of it. i just wanna know how they get those fenders so nice? Those 35s fit the size of the Gen 3 bodys just perfect. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Honestly it looks like one of the better options for a semi serious offroader with all the comforts of a towncar. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Is'nt that the goal of guys that build up SUVs? Have something that carries you comfortably through hell. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Front axle is the same rear is stronger on Gen 3/4. Albeit marginally I mean Gen 2 is plenty strong already.

Plus no changes in driveline angle to contend with.

Exactly. I mean. 33"s look almost like stock tires on Gen 3. Mine for example. No lift.

Those fenders cost arm and a leg. If memory serves me right. Those on Gen 2 pictures cost about $2000. For just fenders
