    Re: Jurassic Jeep build

    not bad. but if you go over budget, who cares, as long as you enjoy it. its gong to look cool as hell
    X2 much rather you make it what you want and drive it. no one is going to kick you out of here!!!

      Re: Jurassic Jeep build

      Haha, thanks guys! The 5k budget is just as much for my sake- keeps me from dumping in a ton of money. Mustang needs a built longblock, new trans, and I really want to try building a VetteKart.

      Realistically, once this is up here Ill fabricate the lightbar, and redo the interior (headliner, seat, and carpet). But I dont really see a 4x4 swap, buckets, or a LSx in it anytime.

            So then- I hate bodyshops. I used to think it was funny to call it paint jail. Not now. I just want my damn truck done. So much for a 2-3 month job. Finally got some sprayed in early january. Maybe I will have it ready for this summer. Maybe.





            This was perfect- fell off the stand when he was inspecting after drying. And I got a 'new' 29 year old handle for it, since they have a tendency to rust out.

            I also picked up an old rollbar cheap (40 bucks). Sandblasting it, painting it black, and putting on the remote-control spotlights I found.

              If anyone is following this-

              Took it on its maiden voyage last week. Needs some work still- brakes are horrid, steering gear is well worn, leaks oil, and an occasional knock/lifter tick (I blame 220k. Sticking in a high volume oil pump when the gaskets done), and the door hinges are pulling off the body so the doors dont seal. But damn am i loving it. Click image for larger version
