Rugged Wrangler?

Now this is something very different. As much as I appreciate rugged and the whole rat rod look, I certainly am not someone that would own one. This one was made for a hunter by Vilner and it's called the "Jeep Wrangler Hunting Unlimited"

Other than the obvious on-purpose rust job, the interior was re-done, fox suspension components added, a winch, and 37" BFG Krawler T/A tires were added.

Engine remains the same.

It's certainly unique and catering to certain tastes... At least some thieves will pass up on a vehicle that looks rusted so it could be somewhat of a theft deterrent. But all that leather, pretty much every surface is covered in the stuff and it makes me wonder why.

This certainly erks me. The interior is absolutely horrendous in my opinion. So many different types of leather and textures and nothing goes together with anything. I understand it's for a hunter and they like that stuff (typically) but darn... that's excessive.

Would be marginally better if all of the leather were of the same texture as the seats, that felt looks just makes everything look cheap.

I don't really get the whole "beaten leather" usage on it. I understand you want a rustic kind of look, but that's like buying jeans with holes in them already. Doesn't make sense. But yeah, maybe if it was all the same texture but I think at that point, it would look like everything disappears.

To someone who wants that whole wildnerness look and feel this is for them, very few people will like it and its why we don't see many examples of these at all, this is actually the first time i've seen one, not just a Jeep but any SUV/Truck.

I wonder how much they charged to get all of this work done. Would have been nice to see some engine modification as well.

Just noticed that the gear stick knob is gold. Whatever makes them happy I suppose. I'm more interested in knowing how much all that upholstery costs when you take into account materials and labor costs.

What's funny is as much as this is theme'd for the wilderness, all that suede on the interior isn't going to help someone that's putting this through the dirt and dragging some of that in, which has me thinking this will just be all show, never seeing it in action doing the sort of things it has the potential for.

The already worn suede and leather would get eaten very quickly if this were to under-go real hunters and their typical etiquette with vehicles lol. The typical rugged hunters are very "rough" for a lack of better words when it comes to their vehicles and the way they treat/maintain them.
