I must also emphasize the importance of the budget for me on this build. ever since it was given to me, I thought I would try to keep the theme going. I dont have much extra money as a college student anyways, but I am being purposely frugal on this build (at least until its running) just to see how cheap I can actually make it. As of today I am officially at the 0 dollar mark on the build. The budget breakdown so far is as follows:
- YJ 2.5 drivetrain-$0
- Sold willys drivetrain and axles-minus $650
- Dana 44 HP and ford 9 inch rear end-$225
- torn up Mastercraft seats-$140
- Blazer gas tank-$40
- Junkyard Cherokee steering and pedal parts-$50
random hardware and things like cutting wheels and paint make up the rest haha So from here on out I am officially spending money. I think I have done pretty decent to get to this point.
