Yeah, structurally it is pretty great. My grandson and Riley drove it 370 or so miles all the way from the dealership back home. Ran, straight and true. We mostly just have a few minor sensor gremlins to track down. Really like the fact that it has the factory tow package on it already. They list the tow limit at 6500 pound which is good for an older SUV like this...
We are going to "try" something different on this build once we are past the truck part of it. I'm going make a single piece or sectional hard cover for the bed and we have discussed taking a mold off of the entire rear section so we can make a high "cap" for the bed.....
Show off your work! Anything from final results to full start-to-finish project journals.
So we are getting closer for our build time.... the kit is shipping out to us next week. It's pretty much just like my Charger kit. It will all come in one big 2 x3 x 8 wooden box. The tailgate and rear window are probably being direct shipped from aftermarket suppliers. It's nice on the Jeep kit because you reuse the Jeep tailights with just some light trimming.
It's really something with these Jeep builds.... I've been looking through some of the ones that I've seen done and honestly I can't see this taking more than 2 to 3 months, tops. I think the 3 of us guys can wrap it up in about 100 total shop hours. Paint is going to be a completely different animal on this....wait till you see what my Grandson wants to do......
