Things are good
I can't believe you got that whole van for $300... I spent three times that just on parts
for replacing my cylinder head
Dude $300 is an amazing deal. I cant even imagine lucking into something that killer.
Really just a case of who you know as I offered to pay scrap prices for it about $850 but the dealer who owned it gave me a hell of a deal at $300. I had figured if I found a full donor that ran well for $1200ish I would have been happy. Essentially I got a motor, trans(which will need converted), PCM(hope it doesn't have SKIM) Harness (may not work due to length issues) exhaust and misc. and $100 (after I scrap it) a win for sure and I couldn't be happier with how this is going so far.
I was about to say, it wouldn't be a true zombie killer without some MOLLE. Do you plan on getting the seat covers as well?
I know people down Smittybilt and some things are sort of crap but I was really happy with this overhead GEAR setup. I don't think I'll do the front seat covers but possibly the rear or tailgate. Very handy for storage which is in short supply in a jeep.
I love this jeep!! keep up the good work man.
Thank You, the guys at work still give me a hard time because they saw the turd it was when I bought it. But they are starting to come around now that the engine swap is a real thing and not just something I keep saying is going to happen.
sweet jeep, what was that bike in the garage? 08ish r6?
you'll have to check out the interco m16s to make that a real zombie killer.on of my offroad mags did a write up about how they will help you survive the zombie apocalypse and the super cool bullet-shaped side lugs would have ur jeep rockin.
also idk how you feel about the shiny jk wheels but lo2ay with the spider build had his stock wheels sandblasted and painted 10% gloss black. gives them a black/gray look in different lights. prolly look sick on ur jeep
Friend of mine had those on his truck those thing would go through anything off road but they were loud and got chewed up real quick on the street.
Bike is an 07 GSXR750 with full race titanium/carbon pipe and dyno tune with only 1400 miles. Still need to sell it, just bought a new battery for it as it has sat in the garage and died.
The JK wheels were just a cheap way to get 17's which I prefer. Eventually I will be going with something different in style but same 17" size. Tires is one of those things I change my mnd on constantly. Just so many great choices but to be realistic the jeep will spend a large amount of time on the pavement so that will weigh heavily. Although at the moment some 37" pitbull rockers mounted on Raceline Monster's bolted to full width dana 60 axles sounds pretty good.
