Did you catch it Bill???

It's supposed to be a build you can do in a typical two car home garage

No Hablos Jeep

If it doesn't make sense, do it

with a 14 bolt front axle??? they should just use an existing scrambler. I think they are buying all new parts (body, frame, etc. etc.)

Yea I caught it. New frame with mounts for a 4 bar front and rear, new aluminum tub, 383 stroker motor. Just what MY budget allowed for. Great build when money is no object.

I bet it could still be built in a 2 car garage though.

they build a full out 8 with all new parts, which is only practical for TV shows, not us do-it yourselfers. Anyone that can afford to do what the show does will pay someone to do the work for them...

unrealistic build...

I definately agree. WAY too much money for the average person.

I've got a friend with a 38k. Dynatrac Prorock 60's etc. etc. etc.

Not realistic, but fun to look at. If i want to see what the average guy could build I'd go to my garage. I like seeing the off the wall stuff. But they did say it would be for the average wheeler.
