The Crush ZR2 on the lot here also has the performance exhaust on it. Crush ZR2 with black wheels would be :tits: IMO

I’ll have to check out the accessory wheels.

Black Bison has the snorkel kit which they are trying to charge $2400 for. :disappoint:
I will also not be buying another black truck.
The performance exhaust is such a heaping pile of meh IMO. It's really not much louder than stock (which is surprisingly loud IMO), and for the price it doesn't really do much.

The black accy wheels are incredible.

I have no idea why people buy black trucks. It shows scratches almost instantly, and never EVER looks clean. Even Blurple is too dark IMO.

My next off-roader will be a bright/light color. Currently torn between Sting Gray, Punk'n, and Bikini (if I end up with a JL).
I see no reason to change out the exhaust at all on these trucks; just a money grab IMO.

Bikini is a fucking cool color! I really like it, but I’d be looking at Mojito if I was getting a JL/T personally.

Also good move on the color change request! Those will not be sitting on diller lots very long IMO.
That's what I was arguing at the time. Crush trucks were turning way faster than other colors, and out of concern that Bisons might sit longer, I wanted to give them a chance to move. There was a moratorium on all cost expenditures...which resulted in Crush staying around for 2020 (was going to go away for some other color, but the cost to change over the paint line at the plant was over $100k). As they wrote the order to continue crush, I "accidentally" added Bison to the list of models that can be painted crush. Technically, there's two new parts (the fascia parts under the headlights) that are unique to Bison and will require some engineering work to complete...so it might have gotten axed. We'll see...

I can't imagine Bisons are sitting long on lots. Production volume is small, and when compared to a Gladiator Rubicon, it's a steal. If I had no brand affiliation, I'd probably buy a Bison.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Bikini is rad as hell. I love the 90's throwback teal look, and with the red accents on a Rubicon, it's awesome. Super compelling, and unfortunately not an option on JT.

I still have no idea what I'm going to do come September.

Good call on trying to sneak that in there! The couple of "custom" Bison parts that would need to be painted might cause it to get axed, but it's a good try. I am stoked to hear that Crush is staying around for 2020. :like:
Crush is a rad color in person, but it needs the black wheels to sit right IMO. :math:

Dang. Dude at work died last night. Younger guy, probably mid30s. Don’t know what happened yet. Didn’t know him personally since I’m new, but he was in a few of my weekly meetings.
