In my humble and personal opinion, since it’s the rainy season here in the Philippines, the most practical vehicle to drive around in is an SUV. I’m saying this because I’ve already been caught in traffic caused by bad weather so many times just because of floods along C5, EDSA, or what have you, telling myself – “Good thing I chose to bring the 4×4 today.” Yes, dear readers, though Project Majesty is a lowered car, I’m still a practical guy who loves to have a vehicle for every purpose.
See, while the rest of the car tuning world is into reducing fender gap, a 4×4 is one of those vehicles which happens to look damn good with massive fender gap. And that’s perfect for Philippine rainy day road conditions, where you don’t have to worry about potholes you don’t see due to them being submerged in floodwater. Moreover, you’re up high and more able to see traffic, so despite the size, you can still maneuver through traffic. And of course, during weekends, you can head to the mountains to places where no other car can go. That’s all part of the fun of owning a 4×4.
And when it comes to 4x4s, one of the most capable in the world would most likely be the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. While it’s already more than ready for action in factory trim, upgrading it with aftermarket parts just makes it better than ever, just like the JK Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited you see here.

Though hard core off-roaders would recommend Mud-Terrain Tires, for the all-around city-dweller and weekend warrior, these Nitto Terra Grappler All-Terrain Tires are more than enough…
And in case the tires go beyond its limits of traction when off the beaten path, the Warn Winch behind that AEV Bumper can take you out of just about any tight spot.
It also helps to have a Fully kitted-out Rhino Roof Rack to allow you to carry more, such as roof awnings for weekend camping trips, a bike or two for the fitness and adventure-seeker in you, and of course it also gives you a mounting location for additional spot/driving lights.
I wouldn’t mind a variety of roof carrier options as well…
So what do you think? Like I said earlier, while the rest of the car tuning world is into reducing fender gap, a 4×4 is one of those vehicles which happens to look damn good with massive fender gap. Would you agree?
