Pretty much, but it was hard to get rid of 5 years work.

I'm sure you'll be surprised at how easily the jeep is modified in comparison! I'm sure the truck was GREAT for dunes and fast dirt roads, but the jeep can be adapted very easily for both desert running and rock crawling!

good luck and have fun!

I built the the bumper out of a piece of metal I picked up at the scrap yard for $36 bucks, it took about a day and a half to build with my sawzall, angle grinder, and welder.

The paint was left over from when I painted the toyota. I have a harbor freight $15 spray gun that works pretty good and the paint was $60 from my local auto paint distributer, a gallon did both vehicles with a little left over. I dont remember the brand but it was somewhere between the cheap stuff and the ok paint. I really think it came out good on both vehicles.

The lift is a Rough Country with some springs off an old race camanche, they have actually run the Baja 1000, I dont know if that is good or not but they still stand tall.
