      The reason why I did it the way was so that our grandson would have a Jeep like his dad's. He has a real Jeep that is done in Gecko Green as well. I was careful when I restored this to not alter anything that couldn't undone. The wheel clearance was achieved by making a "lift kit" I used the original holes in the frame and I still have the original wheels/tires and hub caps
