I build my stuff to get beat. I went down that road having nice showroom looking stuff...not worth it! But I still like to to look somewhat decent. Something like 75% function, %25 style.

Do your doors still open? You need some rock bashers.

It'll be relatively cheap, not as cheap as a coil swap but I'm shooting for around $1000. I'm pretty good at finding deals and can fab like a mofo. Plus I have other parts to sell to offset costs. This is how I figure it'll go:
-front and rear axles with gears, install kit and outer bearings/seals $300-350.
-Heims got for $100.
-front +3.5" coils from my buddy to use on the back $cheap
-front coils, max of $120 which are new ones
-shocks $200
-free 33" tires for now
-rims $50-75
-metal for fab $200...need to go to a place back home cause shit here by my dads is big $$$$
-misc $100
