It’s not really an everyday thing for me to be spending time in the 4×4 forums looking for insane custom Jeep setups, but the other day this gent on Twitter passed me a link (hat tip) to a custom Paul Jensen Jeep which plunged deep into the crazy world of awesome off-road rigs. While I am much more into owning a custom Sprinter van (countless hours have been spent dreaming about one of those bad boys), these XV Jeeps need to be appreciated for the sheer craziness of it all — not to mention the craftsmanship on display from Paul Jensen. The idea of having a truck customized has to be something high on the list for all red-blooded males. Taking something basic and building in so much personalization and utility into a one-of-one truck needs to be commended here.

I’m a long way off from my custom Sprinter, but following along with Paul as he builds these things (and test drives them) is almost as much fun —and with none of the cost or the responsibility— which is nice. These types of builds are so captivating to see come together. It’s depressing to think that the guys that they make TV shows about are nowhere near as interesting as what Paul Jensen is doing here.

    Great Jeep – thanks for the post!

    @Eric G – there is a few in the link that Michael posted to Paul’s test drive of the rig (http://www.hollowsurfboards.com/JeepTestDrive.htm). Lots of great pictures there

    This rig is awesome! I wonder if they’d make an FJ Cruiser version? The test-drive photo doc is superb!

    About the only negative comment i could make about is that im not a fan of the scenic paint job, but thats purely subjective. Objectively speaking, this is awesome.
