Thanks, it was very nice and $$ consuming until I got it to that point. It was Rubicon and Hammers ready. I built everything but the front bumper and cage. The axles and tranny were fun I got pretty close to the asking. A couple flew out from PA to buy it. They had it shipped home. The sad reality of any toy like that is no matter what you have for receipts and how much you've paid, when you go to sell something like that it's really only worth what people are willing to pay for it. I had close to double put into it vs. what I got for it. Really for me it's the fabrication and engineering end of it. I'm considering getting a mill / lathe combo to do gun stuff now. Ugh, why couldn't I pick a cheap hobby like basketweaving or bug collecting
Hey now don't be trying to compare a toy To a Jeep .I bet they both will eat your money when you start adding new gear. heywood that was a nice rig did you get what you asked for?

I hear ya' there! This was my toy up until I sold it last year: 1989 Chevy 1 ton crewcab longbed, rebuilt fuel injected 454, Edelbrock intake, Comp Cams RV cam, Thorley Tri-Y headers, Rebuilt Turbo 400 w/shift kit, NP205, Dana 60 front/14 bolt rear (both with 4.10's, posi rear), 6" Superlift, 33"x14.50"x16.5" Super Swamper SSR's on 12" wide Weld Super Single II's, Flowmaster exhaust, Alpine stereo system, alarm w/remote start, tinted windows all the way around... Plus it was a Silverado so it was fully loaded (power windows, locks, tilt steering, A/C, etc.) It had 84,000 original miles on it when I sold it. Even for as big as it was, that thing would go just about anywhere. Only reason I gave it up was it got 8 miles per gallon (on a good day). In retrospect, I should have just swapped in a 4L80 tranny to get the overdrive & get better mileage... Now I'm keeping my eyes open for a cheap '87-'91 K5 Blazer to start building. Probably will do a similar build-up, but it'll already have the factory 700R4 (overdrive) tranny. I'll also add a winch & Detroit Locker in the rear end.
