For now it is, but it doesnt see much road use. Im in college in Gunnison, Colorado- super small town, so a bike is my primary way of getting around when its not -30 and snowing like it is during the winter months. I have access to millions of acres of public land 5 minutes in any direction so most of its time is spent off road.

Well she got some new parts this summer.

D44HD/60HD out of a 78 f250

Went through and replaced every seal and bearing on them
Inner C's rotated to 7*
Mile Marker lockouts
Ballistic Fab diff covers
D60 has disc brakes
Crossover steering with 1.5" DOM and heims

Military take off double beadlocks recentered and rattle canned by me with 37x12.5x16.5 MTR's- tires were $40 each and rims were $30

Front axle was moved forward 3"s and 3 link reworked a little bit, and added prothane progressive bump stops.

The thing can go 60 over whoops like its nothing, and crawl up anything

I love the rear bumper bump ups to the tail lights. Great job with the geometry.

Nice seeing someone take a stocker and with some hard work come out with a rig like this. If you don't mind me asking do you know how much you have in it now?

Pretty ballpark, but all the major components=

Springs and shocks ~$400
3 link and steering material ~$300
44/60 and complete rebuild on both ~$500
Tires and rims~$400
Bumpers~$150
Sliders~$40

So right around $2k including small misc. stuff, not including the jeep itself. So about $5k all together

Man all these magazines do "cheap" builds.....but bang for your buck this is way better than anything I've seen in a magazine.

Pretty major update.

Swapped in a HP kingpin 60 up front, Spooled both f/r and geared them to 5.38s
14" Coilovers up front, 14" bilstein resis rear
40s, staun internal beadlocks

ANDDDDDD chopped the top, caged it, and am having a @$#% blast. Still have more to add to the cage but its most of the way there.
