Clear doors are unique, particularly with the rear-hinged back units that open suicide-style.

Jeep Performance Parts fitted to this vehicle include Dana 44 axles front and rear, complete with selectable diff locks. A full set of one-off full-length skid plates keeps the underbody protected.

Tires are 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires on special 18-inch alloys.

This is a clever detail -- an onboard air system to easily air tires back up after a hard day on the trail.

Are you finger-pull door handles repurposed from an original NA Mazda MX-5 Miata? You certainly look like it.
