-add in 2 more sticks of tube i put in the chassis,
-all the gas i spent driving around to use friends tools(lathes, plasma, tig)
-welding gas and wire
-the 1000 bucks i spent on fuel getting the "free"chassis
- all the damn fluids


so no i dont think a "decently built" buggy can be built for under 10 grand
you had less than 10 in yours...I'm not sure where you pulled those numbers from, but in case you don't remember your CJ donated just about everything!!

When DJ built his from scratch without a donor vehicle he didnt even have 20K into it and he had to buy everything!
