You might've noticed already, but I think the build is taking a turn in a different direction. I feel that striving to stay lightweight above all else is going to compromise my budget and the concept of keeping this fun. I still plan to build it right and with quality parts, I just can't justify the expenses of aluminum and other weight saving mods while going to college. After college I hope to start another build with a bigger budget that will follow along the lines of Rockmen's SkipWheat build, an uber reliable weekend-warrior (rebuilt motor, JJ arms, full armor, tuned suspension). But that's years from now. So back to the build. I emailed Morris 4x4, because I believe they made the mistake, not me. I'm also saving for a new top since both my window zippers are shot and I like the fast back style.
Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.
