I only have 1 disassembled vehicle. All the others are fully assembled. Some even run and drive...

Getting back on this, I still haven't done anything but remove some of the stickers and buy some things. Ive now got front & rear 1 tons, transfer case w/driveshafts, 2 4x8' sheets of aluminum diamond plate, a proheat x45 diesel hydronic heater, a 12gal rv aluminum lp tank, 2 fiberglass resturant booths and possibly a 6" lift. Ive located a norcold 120v/lp fridge with freezer just have to see if its available.

In all seriousness, stop. Just stop. Don't buy ANY more parts or make any hard plans for this. Focus on the house situation, get that taken care of, then once that is complete(ie you officially own and live in the place, not waiting on a bank or in the process of closings, I'm talking DONE), THEN finish up the more important projects if at all possible, all the while brainstorming the best routes to take on this one. Don't spend a single dime on this thing yet, don't loosen a single bolt, don't grind a bracket. Store it and brainstorm, nothing more. This will allow you to prioritize money(the house will be #1), then prioritize projects(the house will be #1), then decide what you really want. You know me, know my projects and history, and know that my situation was a much milder, considerably less crazy version of yours, and I'm telling you what I learned through the process of wasting lots of time and money. Take care of the house thing and leave this the fukc alone. Not tinker, not nothing. The house will help you to simplify and prioritize. Focus 100% on getting the house right now, then focus on getting the house and garage/barn where you want it to be productive. By then you'll have an idea how much money and time you'll realistically have left for the toys and projects and can prioritize accordingly. Anything now will just be setting you back further from where you need and want to be. Pretend you don't even own this thing.

Buying when the right price comes my way is always how I've done things and will never stop. Still main focus is a house purchase and learning my new job. In all honesty I have very little invested in everything.

Your actions speak much much louder than your written words.

I say buy and build at the same time, don't listen to these haters Andy, you are a highly trained and skilled engineer with some of the sharpest financial skills that would even make Warren Buffet wonder if he is doing it right.

Yeah I did that for years with Jeep shit too. Spending money to save money doesn't get you anywhere when it's shit you're not gonna need for years. I don't know why I'm even bothering to explain anything to you though, we all know it's in one ear and out the other. Oh well, I hope it all works out better than history would suggest.
