Is it just me or does that silver rig look fake....look carefully at the panel seams -they don't look real. It almost looks like it is one piece molded plastic with a reveal to simulate a joint between panels.

Fake?

Here are 2 pics to show what I am talking about. The panel gaps don't appear deep enough -that is it does not look as though there are actually 2 seperate panels with a gap between them. IT looks like one pice with a molded reveal. Notice there is no significant shadow. when you look at a photo of a panel gap on any real vehicle you will see a black shadow line. If you look at the pics Granger posted you'll see what I mean. compare the vertical joints above the corner light.

I think you're right - those seams don't have any shadowed middle.

Nevertheless............I'm starting to like this thing, dammit.

The silver one was at the Off-Road Expo this weekend in Pomona. Yes, it is nothing more than a plastic "shell". This one had 3 wipers. What a disapointment. Couldn't even get near it they had it up on a stage. The "rep" had no answers reguarding the specs, or anything else for that matter. We've gotten better "dirt" on the new FJ CRUISER here on MUD.
