So, up for purchase THIS check is the super 30 kit, and probably the Vancos. If I don't have enough for both I'll start getting more of the smaller stuff from the list going. Front diff cover, f+r gear sets, and I might call daveysjeeps and get the half doors I've been waiting on.
SO what did Brian say he could do?

No I'm not back yet. And I've still got a few more months at least (Barring any extensions.). I'm just trying to get everything around and ordered as much as I can each payday.

I actually haven't called yet. International calls ain't cheap. And I hate conducting business over email. I haven't gotten a new phone card for my phone yet. I should have more minutes tonight. I have a list of things I need to price check between the two companies. I should have budgeted phone cards into my build. At 40 bucks a pop for 50ish minutes, I'm paying through the nose to call. I'll let you know what I get them for once I talk to them.

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.

I just found an amazing online jeep store as far as prices go. AND they are a vendor on JF.

http://www.jeep4x4center.com

At the very least, I'll be using their prices for price-matching, it really depends on who gets me a better deal between them, Brian or Jason. To give you an idea, their OBA set up I was looking at is 70ish bucks cheaper than 4wd, and close to the same from Q-tec. I'm going to have to re-price my build now to reflect their prices and see what's lowest. I feel like I should be on a reality show called "Bargain Hunter". I'll post an updated pricing here in a bit. I have to go buy a phone card when the phone shop opens up.

Soooooo, it looks like I saved about 700 bucks just by price matching alone against Morris 4x4 (The link in the last post). Right now they have Warn M8000 winches for 699 btw... Now I have to wait a few hours for everyone to open up and get on the horn and see what's what. Mmmm Jeep stuff.

I wish Morris 4x4 carried more product now.

Well ****. The cell network is being really patchy today. I'm not going to waste minutes to only get half of a conversation. I'll have to call tomorrow.

Nicely done so far Jimmy James. I just started painting the Rokmen belly skid....mmmm. BTW, I picked up my dad's truck so the jeep is officially parked for building.

See you soon.

Thanks. I'm in sales. The trick is all in your preparation. I've shaved about 3 grand off of my original build cost so far. Of course, I'm just turning around and buying more **** with the money I'm saving, so it's not really saving anything

Paid for my Shocker S4 train horns today They ship monday. I got a good deal off of a guy on www.Trainhornforums.com. They are normally 275 pre shipping. I got them for 210 shipped. I've seen videos with these things and they are unreal. I can't imagine them in person. And you can bet your *** I'm going to have a trucker pull chain to let them loose. Childish? Sure. Fun? You are damned right.

I still need to get in touch with Brian to see about pricing on the new lift route. I tried to call yesterday but he was out. And they were closed today. So, I'll try tomorrow again and see if I can find anything out.

The guy I bought them from has another set still, 210 shipped. You just need a compressor/tank. If you've got OBA, or plan to have it in the future, its a hell of a deal.
