Good post.A huge part of any build [either a firearm, house or vehicle] is how much can you do yourself. Do you have the tools, a place to work, the talent or even the time for diy. This needs to figure into the equation too. Otherwise it’s a money pit that will hopefully have a good outcome but will probably be expensive even with the low cost at the start. Good luck. Keep us posted.
This guy has had a Jeep basically dropped into his lap for nothing , unfortunately it's just a bad one to rescue.
Kind of reminds me of a guy I know who got a trophy wife...wasn't first place.
