5. Sell your jeep to some poor sap and buy one already built. Can probably break even

I like building things myself and doing them my own way more satisfaction in that then buying one already built

Why dump 4 grand in a jeep that will be identical to another and worth the same as a stocker? I used to say that crap, and looking back i regret all the money i dumped over and over. built not bought, blah blah blah. Your plans arent exactly revolutionary, who the fukc cares if you put the axles in or someone else did? Youve been talking about 1tons for how many years now?

I definitely get what your saying but I just like building things myself who cares if you have a sweet jeep if you didn't build it. Don't want to take credit for something or act like it's mine when it wasn't built by me. Like one year but its only because I'm young and dream. I work at a car wash so although I have wanted to for awhile I haven't had the funds. With the new job I'm getting I can finally make it happen

What should I do next:

1. Do a 5.3 swap
2. Get a newer 4.0 one that doesnt burn oil ha
3. Build one tons with 5.13s
4. New creepy crawlers in the 35 flavor

How old are you..? How much mechanical experience do you have..? How much money are you willing to spend.....?

From the way you act/portray yourself, you must be 20-22..

With that, you must be in school, so not making tons of cash, and I don't know what mechanical experience you have..

Personally, do a new 4.0, leave it stock.. Wheel a rig while collecting parts.. Then do everything...

I am 22. I have quite a bit of mechanical experience knowone touches my vehicals or motorcycles but me but I am no expert when it comes to motor or axle swaps.

I am willing to spend about anything just will be doing a little at a time. I currently am an electrical intern so I go to school once every 2 weeks for 8 hours and work 40 hours per week. I make about $13 an hour and live at home so I make good money for my age.

Get a new 4.0 and then build some axles? My current motor runs fine just burns oil and blows blue smoke

How do your parents feel about you living at their house at 22 yrs old and spending all of your money on a jeep?
