$25,000 in quality, name brand parts alone in this Jeep.Labour just to do basic engine swap is quoted locally at $8,000-$10,000 plus parts.
You canâ€™t build this Jeep for less even using cheap parts.
Most parts on this Jeep donâ€™t even have 100km on them.
This is not a show vehicle but a really nice and fun to Drive daily driver for a great price. A real head turner and thumbs up type of vehicle. In my option and with quotes Iâ€™ve gotten $2000-3000 would really make this Jeep a show stopper, but Ichose to allow these final decisions to be made by the proud new owner.
