Wow. That is impressive. I am pretty sure that those fancy mall crawlers have auto folding mirrors though, so no added effort was required.

Bet I could call her insurance and claim my truck leans left because of this. lol

Gives a nice size perspective on the new one compared to the oldest one, eh? I think it makes her butt look big...

It would be interesting to see a 60/62 vs. 80 vs 100/200 to see the growth over time. A recent wagon to a FJ40 is beyond an unfair comparison. Sort of like a new 4 door Wangler next to a WWII surplus Willys MB. Sure, they're both Jeeps but 70 years of change is bound to leave a mark.

She probably couldn't see your 40 over her massive cell phone that was pasted to her face while parking.

80 vs 200. Not quite the best angle to see the big difference in width...

Hey Matt (either of you)

Come on over and we'll shoot the 40, 60, 80, 100 (LX) comparison...all on OME lifts.

Man, I would have been tempted to give them a door ding for parking like that... It's only MY respect for others property that would hold me back.

Lets make this happen at the Rally this weekend! I bet at least one 200 will show up too!
