To borrow the idea of another member... I thought it would be cool to see what people could do for 100 bucks or less. That's a reasonable amount for most people so let's see what we can list.

Relocated gas tank to make room for D70...









Only cost was some EFI fuel hose and EFI hose clamps along with some scrap angle iron. I think it was about $90 total.

No but there are no fumes anyways.

Hell I did all the welding on my rear bumper/crossmember and stuff with the tank only 3 ft away. No boom

I don't know if it is or not but that gas tank just looks scary. Do you drive that daily? I am curious how many times you will get pulled over by cops just wondering what the heck it is.

He's got a build thread going on it. I've got it crawled and I'm always looking at it. You should check it out. He's doing some really neat fabrication to that Jeep.

Obtained a 3.5ft by 6ft utility trailer, cleaned, primed, and painted it, and reinstalled the wood floor and sides. Total cost: $25 for the 2 cans of spray primer and 2 cans of Automotive Cherry Red spray paint
It's going to be my camping trailer. All I have left is run the wiring, which I have, buy new brake lights and tires, and get it registered!!!

Not running and driving yet so I can't comment on that... but

it will be daily driven and I gaurantee you it's a lot less scary than some half-*** fuel cells I've seen installed.

I'm a VA state inspector, ASE certified in brakes, steering/suspension, HVAC, engine repair, and electrical, and was a Chrysler tech for 1.5 years before I left to work at my currect dealer in August 2007.

I'm not your average 20yr old idiot kid I'm a slightly more edumehcated 20yr old idiot kid

So that's where you got all the smarts to build a rig like that!
