I'll still be around the forums, I'll just build a trail rig that costs a few dollars less :)

Thanks, I can't explain how excited I am!

I may cut the cost of the jeep if I keep the tires, because I know many won't care to have these tires because they drive on the road too much/don't trailer the jeep. Just an FYI.

I typically recommend putting the jeep back to stock for sale, mb with just some slightly bigger tires then stock. The fuel cell is going to scare 95% of the potential jeep buyers away. That other 5% is going to build their own rigs unless the jeep is a screaming deal. Post it up on Facebook, mb you can find a 15 year old girl that wants to buy it if you will deliver it across the country.

Yeah I hear you....back to stocks not a possibility, though, and if it were it wouldn't be worth the time and effort

Maybe I'll throw it on eBay

Good advice - I'm trying my darndest. Been working my butt off, and cut a few not necessaries (HBO, etc.) back.

Cash still speaks, but I have turned down a few decent offers

Hey Mike, I can't believe nobody has snatched your rig yet. It was already an amazing deal at 29k, Jeez what do people want? Everyone thinks they can get a monster rig for ten grand or something. Wish you could keep it because it's obvious how much careful thought, hard work and effort you've put into it, and it's clearly a great offroad machine. I wish I didn't have so much money dumped into mine or I would snag yours in a second. Good luck, I hope you can get a buyer, or better, I hope you win a small lottery so you can keep it. And congratulations on becoming a dad. Nothing beats that. Well, maybe becoming a mother, but that's not an option for you. Take care.

Don't ever give up what you love to do in life , even for a family , get a new job , she gets a new job , make other cuts in life , start bringing you lunch to work , carpool to work . Many other options then giving up the Jeep . When being made to sacrafice , one builds resentment !
