According to the wife too much.

I dont know if I could even add it all up. I have changed lifts, bumpers, and tires, and everthing else so many times I wouldn't even know where to start.

I bought it for $10K
I would guess I put at least $15K or more into it(mods and repairs)
I might have made $5K back from the parts I sold that I either didnt use or took off.

I thought Killer B said this is cheaper than therapy. Maybe not but it is more fun.

Mine was stripped to the frame and rebuilt. I itemized, but the list is WAY too large for a post. The total damage on my CJ7 rebuild was $15,000. My insurance appraisal only gave me $12,000 though, so I'm out $3K if it gets stolen.

Still cheaper than buy a stock TJ, and mine is built better than a Rubicon.....
