Yep. It sucks that the people that work hard are the ones that get ripped off. Since half of what they took was loose items in the truck I have to claim it under my auto and home owners insurance. So it looks like this is going to be all out of pocket. Good by 2k worth of ****. Yippee.

All I can say is I hope that fuker rots in hell!!!

To sell or not to sell jeffery is what is running through my head right now. Im quite motivated to start saving for an ultra 4 build. I turn 25 in 2 years, and that is when I want to have a race ready rig built by or at least almost finished.

Rent one to race, if you like it enough, sell the TJ and build your U4 rig.

I totally agree with gtxracer. Not only that it would be nearly impossible to break even on what you have spent on parts and time put into the Jeep.

Keep Jeffery and use him as advertising for your shop and write off new mods on your taxes as business expenses.

But ultimately do what you feel is best for you.

Now that's a good idea.

Oh and you can't sell it until after the Colorado trip, lol.

It's a sweet rig man, keep it and build your U4 rig as money allows. That's my vote anyway, I just don't think you'll get enough money for it to make a huge difference anyway....u4 rigs are huge dollars (from previous posts I'm thinking you're planning to go unlimited).

After the last two Fridays, spent riding my Dad's Harley, I keep thinking about selling the Jeep and getting a bike again. A day on the Harley is cheap and very, very fun.

I would go unlimited. Selling Jeffery would be the upfront money to get started. I know what I can get out of him, and I know what I have into him.

I just always told my self by the age of 25 id be racing. So I am looking at what it will take to make that happen. Cause I am not going to miss that dead line.

Number one reason I hate running a full bodied tub.






But this is pure art.

Don't blame Jeffery, you're the one that beat on him.

I worked on my Jeep today too....finally did the tranny fluid/filter change, that was "fun".

This is true. I was supprised at how much the AL springs back after applying pressure to it.

The heate treated AL doersn't give much after it deforms unless you anneal it. We get into that quite bit with our delivery trucks after an accident. GTX racer is on to it, register you shop as a business, business loss the first few years makes for a nice tax write off. Same goes for your plasma table. Money saved is money earned to make the dream come true. Sure hope to see you out at the Hammers in a few years
