Bought it for about $17k back in 2007:



Did a 3" lift, 33s, BUNCH of little stuff/armor/SYE/CV shaft/etc etc... about $4000 later I sold a LOT of stock stuff out from under it and some of my upgrades, got about $2500 back... so at that point I was in it $1500...

Did a 1 ton build, and about $10k later here it is:





So just shy of $12k is probably about right.

COULD have paid it off by now, but instead I owe $10k still

OK here it goes
Started stock:

Always wanted half doors, found a guy on CL wanting full doors. Traded doors plus gave me $1000

Got a CB from a guy at work, ended up not using it so traded it for a 2" BB, CB was free so I guess BB was free too

1.25" BL and 33x12.5 Duratracs $800 + change

And some Free '10 JK Sahara Unlimited 4 door shocks from a local Jeeper
Almost forgot..sold side steps for $170 on Ebay to some guy in puerto rico and bought rockers for $200 so about balances out
SO
Doors........-$1000
BB............-$100
Shocks......-$100 (?)
BL............+$125
Tires........+$675
TOTAL BUILD TO DATE= -$400
Not to bad, plus the misc stuff I have sold on EBAY that I have taken off. Probably a total of $500 in my pocket.

Didn't "Make" make him do anything, Full doors are more expensive than half doors and that was his offer not mine,
