I've never spent that much on this ZJ, $600 was the most back in '10 when i got new 31's. Now it's just the tip of the iceberg...

I paid $3500 for this thing almost 2.5 years ago.

^ Looks like you're making decent progress. I've seen far worse welds from people who have been doing it for a while.

Discovered that sometimes, the driver door will stay shut, and sometimes It won't. Looks like the bungee cord stays.
