!pics!how many times have you built your truck

i started with a rusted out $500 beater that was sitting in a back yard for several years i had to jam a pice of wood between the cab and box to close the door.


while i was changing the cab i decided to do a 3"body lift and some 33" bfg's
then i went on my first excursion and noticed it was a chore to keep it on the road and i couldnt get it past 4th gear. so out came the busted ass springs and 3.08 gears


the front looked real sacked out after i got the rear springs together so in with 2" coils and new shocks that lasted a fiew years, then i stumbled across a 6" suspension lift a good box some 3.73 gears and a mini spool for the rear then the 33's looked too small. so bakelite set me up with some 36" irocks. but then my rims where too narrow. i have just finnished sandblasting and painting some 15x10" rims. and i decided the fenders and rad support need to go, but i got a little carried away. the old 4.9 is getting a little long in the tooth at 349,000 orignal km and i figured theres no better time than when the rad support is out of the way. rev and shadow want to go for a ride, and are trying to rush me..

about all that is left from the truck that l bought is the cab and windows - the rear one that metal mulisha broke, stearing collum, head liner, and cd player.
hood and fenders are still the same.
frame, springs, t case and rer drive shaft are all else that are from that first truck.

everything else such as
axles, tranny, engine, gas tanks, box (x2), bumpers, lights, brake lines, master cyl for both clutch and brakes, rad, body has been off the frame at one pont too....

My new jeep, after the psc stuff arrives I'll be into my jeep for 1850 bucks , my last jeep...that's another story... Bought it for 200 bux off a guy on bc4x4 and it had 3 huge holes in the rad, 3 different builds and 2 different lifts I was just over $12,000 in the hole, only to scrap the fucking thing and start over...

i have been lucky, almost all my parts have come from other trucks i bought or found, free. if i where going to put a $ value on the parts i would have to say im in the 3-5000 range. and that is mostly due to buying the cheep crap from lordco, and having to rebuy and reinstall higher quality stuff cause it failed within a year.
