Yea game plan for the jeep, I think I have roughly 3500.00 left before Its pretty much finished.
Check list

Exerior
*242 tc
*front DS
*Truss front and rear
*Sleeve fornt axle
*Regear to 456
*Aussie lunch box in rear
*Belly Armor
*Gas tank skid
*Finish front bumper
*Dip tail lights
*Install Rear backup LEDS
*Change headlights to black Laredo
*Install Bushwackers (whenever they show up)

Interior
*custom dash
*double din
*new sound system
*roof mounted gun rack
*Dual battery tray and air compressor in spare tire well.
*other random small things

So MAYBE looking like around Xmas to finish or begining of the year. The Dash I know is going to be a pain in the ***. I have 16 Rocker switches to wire up and Fab a center dash for everything and check out the awesome a/c that we have.

I'm loving the build man. Just signed to keep better track of it. I like how you're fabricating everything. I wana try and get a project done myself, I'm in the saving money up to be able to get my goodies phase. If anyone has tips for a new Jeeper I'd love to hear em.

Good luck on this monster!

Thanks! Yea I was trying.to build on.a budget, and.no one made.the stuff.i.wanted or it cost too much. Fabrication is more unique and a lot of.times cheaper.

Yea I know, the pipe bender was almost 400, the fab tools are pricy. Im paying someone to use theirs. My grill is what Im most proud of so far. RBP grill go for between 800-1200 and its not even a replaent, you tare apart ur stock n pop rivet theirs on. Plus they dont even make them for wjs.

The bumper is going to be a fun build since were building it from scratch. Hoping once done there will be extra materials to do a truss and belly skid.

A bunch of us have a big event next weekend so waiting on products to.come in is stressful. Instead.of waiting on products that cost too much I rather make them. But time is my enemy right now with.so much.to do.

I worked at differnt fab shops and winged a lot of it, but over time you just learn on your own. Cody, the guy whos shop were doing the work at has a unique mind, tell him what you want and he will find some way to build it.

Next up is the tube bumper. Bushwacker.released fender flares for.the wjs but no one has them yet. And because they stick out farther, been waiting on them so.the outer part will match up and.flow better with the.body panels.
