Rhino Vs. Razor

Know this has been hottly debated but i am at an impasse. Originally wanted a rhino conversion then bought a razor to hang on the wall. Now that razor is looking pretty sweet.

May switch them on and off every few months or so - I figure I can't lose at this point. Which ever I don't use is going on the wall (much to the dismay of my wife).

I have met with a few really great guys off of the boards. My question to all of you is - Rhino or Razor on Frank the Tank?

Razor all the way, IMHO the rhino is really goofy looking, and kinda bucktooth looking. The razor looks lean and mean.

Razor! Looks great on the Waggy! It gives a nice retro touch.

floorboard next to gas pedal

Can anyone with a 62-64 wagoneer / truck make a mold of the floorboard next to the gas pedal .... or know of a place to get a replacement?

Try having a regular j10 and a stepside j10!

I'm thinking of tossing the rhino and razor'ng as well. Love the clean look of it!

Razor grilles are pretty sweet especially with a 3 piece bumper and the thin vertical bumperettes

I like th debate. Think I'm going to run Rhino at first as I haven't seen very many in my area of Atlanta.

I am also planning to refurb the razor and paint it black - wish me luck.

I like the rhino, and my truck is originally a rhino.

I really like the razor though. I think it's a bit sacrilegious to put a razor on a rhino rig though.

Like them both. Will be retrofitting a rhino into the '79 Cherokee N/T - think it will look nice with the 'morocco buff' color. But on the '78 J-20 I'm keeping the razor - think it will be very nice with the planned dark blue paint.
