What I'm saying is this: You could buy a used TJ for $10K, put $10K into it and still not be where this jeep is.
I've never built anything so hugemongous - but I'd imagine $3500 for the axles set up how they are, $1500 for the DOM and rodends to install those axles under the thing - and you've still not figured in labor, shield gas, etc. How much are coilovers?
The first rig you ever build (and try to do it w/o all used & junkyard parts) - you find out how fast shit adds up. Like my 66 Chevy, and I cut corners everywhere I could to save $$$
I know you can NEVER expect to get the sum total of your mods back when you sell - and I guess that's what I'm saying: 13below0 *is* losing money selling at this price.
Anyway - badass Jeep.
