If I had $3500 my junk would be lifted, locked, painted, and running properly.

I think you are miscalculating today's prices for parts and paint!

Even still you're looking at a couple hundred in paint and body at least. 20-30 cans of paint, 80-120, then sand paper, body filler, etc. then at least 500 for decent lockers. Then you still have to do the lift! It's gonna be more than 3500 for all that.

20-30 cans of paint? Dude, you are talking to Puck, not YSB. I've never met him but I don't think Puck would be painting a gay pride flag and peace signs on his rig. I could be wrong.

Ok, ok, maybe I was a bit overestimating. I would still plan on at least 10, if you want good coverage! I did my back fence and it took 8 cans to look decent. His Cherokee is bigger than my fence.

Do you honestly think I'd make it look decent just to F it up on the trail? I just want to cover the rust. Plus my dad is an old body man. And I only need to buy one locker, the front, im welding the rear.

You plan on towing it to the trail? It's gonna be chirping tires or breaking stuff on turns in town.

Tear that **** up. We had the plan figured out the day we dropped the tank. Cut the roof off. Throw the fenders away. Ditch everything not essential to speed, and romp that dirty old *****. Why polish a terd? I think puck should buy a grinder and a pack of cut off wheels and go to town. I see a canvas top over a home made roll bar with the only glass being the windshield.

I know my opinion doesn't matter, but I disapprove! I would keep it posted on CL and JF for at LEAST a month and try to get rid of it, then focus on something that is a little easier to fin parts for. Maybe even do a ram/ramcharger frame swap so you can use all the Chrysler parts, theyre everywhere.
