Highly correlated to your net worth, interest level, and willingness to blow money on a vehicle. But you ask, how does a person scrape together the funds? Well, I just get my credit card out and swipe it or enter the numbers and when the bill shows in the bank account, I just transfer funds to pay balance.

You could just do what ya wanna do to your jeep and if anyone gives you a hard time about it. Just tell em to "deal with it" and walk off. Course that could lead into a divorce, so, there is that to think about.

My drill checks from the National Guard go into savings for me to use as I see fit and I do side work out of my garage at home. Gear setups, lift kit installs, custom XJ bumpers and the like. So basically I spend most of my weekends working an extra job to fund the jeep.

Organs on black market. It's amazing what people pay for an over used dying liver. I guess it's all in the marketing techniques.

I did this while restoring my Chevy.. Invested my Plasma, Sweat, and time.. Somewhere along the line some red blood as well.



She came out nice was the rare-ish 1987 R10 with dual saddle tanks But I put in a 2006 Vortec 5.3L, 4L60E transmission, kept the fuel injection had custom wiring harness and ECM, Dakota Digital gauge cluster. Then I sold her

$240 bucks a month in plasma can do alot, and in the end you are doing a good thing and helping someone.

To be honest, I didn't do it when I was in your shoes. To much to pay for.Also don't forget everyone make different money.My kids have grown and moved and the house is paid for.I also don't spend everything I make like so many others.I also live somewhere where it's a little cheaper to live. I'm also a hell of alot older than you and have bought and sold 6 houses already. without knowing your age, I,m probably old enough to be your father ! So, just because you talk with diff. people on the net , you really don't know them at all ! Now, not only have I built my JKUR to the hilt, I'm also building another Jeep !

To the OP, I'm pretty much in your shoes. Bought and started modding the Jeep before kids = gears, built front D30, winch, tires, lift, front bumper. Then rebuilt rear after some trail carnage, replaced front with a d44.

Then kids... started trading chit and selling my other toys I bought before kids, my gun collection

Anything since kids has been bartered for or sold other stuff to get. Except my Teraflex brake kit (thanks Marcus @ RCO). Since I needed new brakes anyways, I was able to justify them as maintenance.

for me it is as simple as scrimp and save. I usually save most of the year for a specific mod, then make it happen once i have the loot. Usually one major mod a year.

last year was replacing my front built D30 with a Heavily built D44 w/OX locker.

This year will be some kind of locker for the rear, prefferably a detroit soft locker.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

Ha ha ha , my ole lady,,, I had 3 so far, no shit, I can't keep a woman around. They can't stand me not listenin to them and tellin them to "shut the F up an stop your bitchin". I gave up the marrying thing about 8 years ago and since I've had about 4 young ones (28-34) that thought they were fatten me up for the kill (get married and have kids) and started the ole "Marry me or I'll leave you" thing. I said "Don't let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out"

Jim, I got too much to lose to get married, and I'm too lazy to start all over again. No way in hell would I get married again, especially in today's world.

Bought a plain jane CJ-7 back in '85. Was married, but no kids yet. Was in the process of building it and had it pretty close to where I wanted it at the time. But then, there is always more to do that would be "nice."

Then we started having kids. When the 3rd one came in 1995, that was it. The CJ had to go. They wouldn't all fit.

Flash forward to 2007 (12 years without my Jeep!). Now have 4 kids, scattered over a 10 yr. span, and I see the new 4 DOOR Wranglers. Sweet. Go down to the dealer and check one out. Crap! They'll only seat five.

Flash forward again to 2012 (5 MORE years without my Jeep!). 2 of the 4 kids are away at college, on scholarships, etc. Am now making MUCH more money than I was back in the late '80s (like 4 times!). Boom! 2012 JKU Rubicon. And I've been setting priorities ever since.

Two cliches will help you out here: 1) It's never done, and 2) Just Empty Every Pocket. Some people put a lot of money into boats, or other kinds of toys (motorcycles, quads, personal water craft, etc.) Some people spend on entertainment of various descriptions. Others take expensive vacations. It's really all about priorities . . .

. . . and timing. Hard to hear when you really want to forge ahead with the dream build, but maybe it's just not your time yet. If you just can't fit it into your budget, be patient until you can. Don't jeopardize your family and relationships just for the sake of the satisfaction of that next piece on your Jeep. Trust me, that thrill will go away . . . quickly, and it will be on to the next thing. It's an addiction. And most addicts destroy their families. Don't do it.

Oh, and do the work yourself. If you don't know how, learn. And if you have friends, or can make some friends, or join a 4x4 club to help, so much the better. Remember, friends don't let friends pay labor charges. If you don't have facilities or tools, maybe some of them will. And in many places there are businesses now where you can rent space and tools by the hour or by the day to do weekend projects.

EDIT: Also, don't know how old your 3 kids are, but if you have 3 in diapers, WAIT. Just wait. Three kids in diapers will make you wonder how you're going to eat, much less build a Jeep. Fortunately, they WILL get past that. But in the mean time, you're going to wish you had an oil well.
