    I get sucked right back in!:rolleyes: So i bought this the other night
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=017&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=270048869926&rd=1,1

    I took a look at it and all it needs is a tune up/ fuel filter (which i have all the parts for) has a little bit of rust but nothing severe. At the moment i have almost everything for a lift/ crossover/ 1 ton conversion... Basicly my plans are to drive it through the winter, get the few parts i need and then in the spring go at it. It will be nice to have a truck again. Also it will put me at ease a little bit because ill have a backup vechicle in case something happens to the jeep.

    The project is still on its way out, im just going to keep the parts and scrap the body. The only reason im going this route is because ill have a running vechicle to drive now, not in a year or year and a half. Also i can do the complete build up in no time becaus ei already have the parts:D
