well, i have squashed the idea of a stroker build. i dont realy need it for when it comes time to compete in KOH stock class, i allready have an advantage in the power department, so im just gona leave it alone.

im just gona drop the deployment money on a down payment for another house.

as far as "finish her up" goes, that depends on your definition of finished.

yea, no kidding.

in all honesty, i wish i never had the jeep, and had all the money that i have sunk into it.

then again, i probably would have found another way to spend it.

if only i knew then what i know now.

My jeep keep me out of trouble. I know that for a fact. Im glad I have it. I have learned a lot about managing my finances and when to draw a line with something. I am saving for a house now just like you said, jeep can go on the back burner for a little while.

I'm only around $6k into mine including the 360 I built for it(but I don't trust my tranny to handle it) and the HP30/8.8 I'm currently in the process of building. I wish sometimes I never had it, can't imagine how you must feel with ~$20k or more?

I'm not sure if the video somehow makes it worse, but i "blew" that stop sign at like 1 or 2 miles an hour heh. I might not have come to a full and complete stop but you'll never see me ignore a stop sign.

But Ryan i'm straight thuggin! And I agree on the wheel, I'll have it straight for Andy
