    Everything on this project is because we had it laying around. The front springs are from a Toyota the rear springs will be a chevy toy jeep mix. The axles he got for a 100 bucks. The 283 was already in it the bellhousing and transmission and transfer case were welded:eek1: together. This project will probably not exceed 1500 bucks for the initial build. I am sure it will someday but we need to get it on the road for cheap right now.
