It would be more of a camping/expedition/weekend warrior vehicle for when we go to the lake with friends/family. And then I can do some mild wheeling with it. Maybe down the road i would do a custom 4-link but that isnt the initial plan.
My girlfriend really likes the TJs so I will probably get one of them as well, just need to find the right one. I prefer stock vehicles that I can do the work then having to go behind someone but that doesnt mean I wont look at modified Jeeps they just wont be my first choice. I really like how thorough you were with your build. I plan on doing the same. The issues with getting a TJ right away is that I am doing a big renovation at this time at my girlfriend's house and then I need to build a garage too. That might happen this fall though.
Thank you for your advice. If I find a good enough deal I'll be sure to snag it up. I am sure the F-350 was overkill but I have no doubt it was a great truck!
