The simple fact is the jeep is awesome. The guy works hard (and gets to use his income on his jeep, which is also really nice). You have great work ethic to pull this off. Can't wait to see if you build some more.

I'm not hating, infact if you read back I complimented the build and even made a wallpaper out of it. I just seen a bazillion posts about how he afforded, so I answered the question above me with a smartass response. I guess it didnt come across with my intended purpose.

Colorado State University.

In fort collins there isnt a Clean Air Colorado Emissions test, so im fine. The one thing that was worrying me was my removable steering wheel/ lack of airbag.

With the emissions test, they scan the PCM for diagnostics of the emissions, but it would throw faults for the airbag online. But since i dont have that test, im fine.

I guess i could still get tickets from police for an unsafe vehical. but im hoping for the best.

Don’t really know the caster, but its set to where a stock D60 is in a Ford. Going to run Airbumps up front when I get some cash.

IF you look at it, selling the Rubi Axles and lift and tires I had gave me a significant amount of money to do the 1 ton project, contrary to popular belief.
And my father passed away a few years ago, and jerry rigged everything he tried to fix. Never was a mechanic or anything, but was a pilot and was pretty good at flying million dollar planes, go figure.
And yes, my mom hates this fuggin thing. LOL

Going to run the braces to the front of the Coilover hoops, They dont really rub on flex. Its actually pretty good. The steering arms bind on the frame before the tires have a chance to rub fender or anything.

Oh hell yeah. You'll be living in AV? I thought you said somewhere you will be majoring in engineering.

Anyways, I don't even know you but I've decided you may come over to my house to wrench anytime. You wont want to be doing anything in the parking lot - trust me.

The police in Fort Collins are pretty laid back. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Wonderful build, enjoy it and welcome to the front range.

Wow...

You are a genius my friend! You have managed to construct a very sharp and trail capable Jeep. Not many people can actually pull that off!! Not only that, your young and smart as h*ll! Not many people your age could pull somthing like that off! Your Jeep has inspired me to build one pretty close to that, but with my own twists! MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU!
