your TJ was 4500? holy crap. I thought you had stripped it down more than that. Last time my TJ was weighed it was 3900. Jesse's BTF buggy weighed 3850 on strangler's scales. (5.3/th400/stak/d60/39s)

I agree. Nice work fabrictator. To your question, I'm guessing he doesn't need much more than a couple quarts before he rolls or breaks.

Erin, it's so much fun picking on you.

So you're saying he could have just picked up 2 steering reservoirs, and used one as a fuel tank? Man.. that's mean.

how many sticks of tube did you use up in building this one?

I don't think your feets are going to like getting bbq-ed when you blow a tranny line

otherwise looks great, thinking of doing a second after this one get abused for a while?

Because of the possibility of blown cooler lines?

the inside is not done yet.thanks for your concern though.yea it is going to have some firewall in it.
there is about 15 20ft sticks in this.i would like to start building one every year.all depends on my work schedule.is a shit ton of work and alot of money. i will have a real hard time parting with this one though. without selling it i dont see being able to afford another build.
