    @steffen707 Haven't finished reading this thread, so maybe it is mentioned... but I dig those embossed Rubicon letters in the video. Who is making those???

    Thank you for posting these pictures--I really love this color! I'd describe it as a faded OD green, a color I've often seen on military surplus items. This is definitely the color for me!

    i had to go back and re-watch it. I doubt those will be available for order, they look like they're recessed into the hood, so you couldn't just stick em on. Jeep usually does a bunch of custom crap you can never buy. Like the wayout's Air Compressor Panel built into the driver side.

    Sorry for this bit of resurrection, but I was thinking at lunch about the Wayout and the hood on it. To look at it... that's the normal JL hood, but they say it's a steel import. Why did they put a steel import version of the hood when they could have put the lighter US version? Has anyone seen a discussion about this choice?

    They said that the steel hood is taller in the front to meet foriegn crash standards for hitting people, they used it because they liked the way it looked.

    More important question I've been wondering. Can the windshield still be folded down with the snorkel?

    The thing I really like about this is other than the fuel tanks and modified hard top to keep the RTT lower (which isn't really necessary), it would all be easy to do to a Rubicon. 2" lift, 37's, drill a couple of holes for the on-board air and the rest is all bolt on stuff. You could easily add rotopax holders behind the rear fender flares as well, you just wouldn't have those nice recessed areas with a notched fuel tank. Even most of the cosmetic changes are decals - and I really like the blackout for the tailgate and lower sills. Might do that on my bright white for some added contrast and road rash/shoe scuff protection.

    Hopefully they release a set of those along with the rear rack - with an optional soft top cover.

    Oh thanks for confirming. I wonder if there have been any side by side pictures of a Sport or Rubicon by the Wayout... close enough to see the taller hood difference. To my eye, it looks just like the standard Overland/Sport hood. (If it's the UK hood, shouldn't we be calling it a bonnet anyway?)

    My hope is to take my future Sport S and make it into something close to this truck. I'm planning to go with a Softtopper to go under a rack, then have a full cab height rack. The rack will accommodate the rotopax stuff, shovel, axe, hi-lift as well. I'd love to see under the hood in the Wayout... how big is their air compressor.
