James, don't sell it. You guys were right about me selling mine. I don't so much miss "my jeep" as I miss the brotherhood, friendships and bonds I made along the way. I'll be in Indy this August, I hope you still have your Jeep then.

That's nuts John. And Brian, I won't be here in August. I'll be in Afghan still, but we'll see how it plays out. John is talking me down off the ledge. He's about the only one that can.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

There's a huge down side to selling the jeep.....it'll just lead to buying another one that needs modified and that just starts the headache all over again. Finish what you got. Sometimes I wish I had just finished the YJ, it would have been cheaper.

Definitely one of my favorite builds!! love seeing the new paint and progress pics and all the hilarious posts you indy guys have.
I Hope this selling talk passes and you finish what you've started because this is shaping up to be one of the most bad a$$ rigs on JF!!

No worries on selling the Jeep guys. He couldn't do it now that its all one color. It's just to BADASS for words.

You need to bolt the wheels on it and take some pictures for us all to drool over till you get home.

I have a different steering box than both of you so mine will be different. But if you still want I can check if you want me to check for some other reason I can look.
