There's TONS of them that are hurting my cause. That though definitely isn't one of them considering it's a truck in Washington. Not too worried about that one and that's the reason the price is what it is. If was up there I'd probably have mine listed for $10K too. Well, that and I've got much more motor and a much better rear axle. T100 axles are great as long as you don't want to really race on a 33" tire or bigger...

Trucks like this in the actual southwest area are what's killing me way more then some random dude posting on a rock crawling forum that his race truck is for sale.

This one sold for $9K
http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/truc...ies/179239.htm

Ones like this arguably may be nicer then mine in the same price range...


http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/truc...ies/179823.htm

And then there's ones like this that actually help mine...

http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/truc...ies/175592.htm


Point being, the market is all over the place. And again, if mine sells awesome, I'll show you what fast actually is with the new toy. If it doesn't sell, so what, I'll still be out there having fun and it'll give me the excuse to knock out the projects I had initially planned to do to it this past summer. When I took it out Sunday I had an absolute blast in it so trust me, my feelings won't be hurt if I don't find a buyer for $15K before the IRS knocks on my friends door. But until then I'm gonna keep trying. Heck, I'm actually still dumping money into it for some minor upgrades. Ordering parts for it tomorrow...

My point is that the prerunner market is flooded with cheap Bro-trucks and while you and I know the details, id bet a small percentage will even care about the motor or the tire size ect....what I gather from the prerunner crowd at least locally is as long as it looks cool, it's bro tastic. I think yours is worth every bit of 15k. Its the lacking ones that hurt the market.

Anyway I bought a TJ tub and frame to start my new project lol I needed something to hold the LS up they don't look as cool on pallets.

Most of these bro-tastic trucks don't even see dirt. I once saw a Nevada plate with the word SoCal on it, lol. It's funny, this bro crowd.

CJ7 is kind of on the back burner....mostly because I don't need to do anything with it. The buggy is about to get lots of attention, my Jeep is going in for some fine tuning and a few more small things like enabling a front dig feature lol. I'm not giving too many details on Project EL-J.....yea like Mexican EL lol, but it will have an ELS2, and 40-42" tires.

You'd be surprised on the motor part... A lot of people have said they're specifically interested in mine cause of the motor that's swapped in it. If it was the old V6 the 4cyl actually would be preferable over it but most people seem to know the 3.4L is a pretty badass platform with a really easy power upgrade if ever wanted in the TRD supercharger.


BTW, I kinda have to wonder what you would have if you only had one project??? Like rather then kinda sorta dreaming about KOH EMC, you could just go race the real KOH if you combined the efforts of all 18 of your projects into one vehicle. I mean sure I kinda have 3 on the burner but one isn't money outta my pocket and the other 2 as they sit right now are actually very close to finished. The expo if I'd get my *** together really only has another weekends worth of work to have it 100% done plus a paint job unless I decide to go atlas with it... And the Yota really doesn't have too much on it either. Couple weekends of worth without much cash into it and then the rest would be shop stuff cause I'll pay some pedro's to do me a carpet kit and headliner for it.
