I agree with the time, but not the ability. I'm by NO means a mechanic, but since owning this Jeep, I've done EVERY SINGLE MOD to it.

"F*(k it, I'm going to give it a shot".....and then doing it. There is a lot more pride in doing something yourself, IMO. I'm also of Scottish descent and so tight that I can't stand the idea of paying someone else to do something if I can do it on my own.....
Americans sleep safely in their beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do them harm...

I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you with tears in my eyes, if you f**k with me, I'll kill you all.....

yup I agree 200 percent, not everyone grew up around tools or how to use um. I've only been wrenching for about 16 years and I feel I can fabricate with 90 percent of the people out there. All it takes is a don't take no attitude and the balls to give it your best

The frame is cut in the rear for the coilovers... Isn't that a little strange?

I'm with you guys on the "just do it" attitude, but a lot of guys are too afraid they'll screw something up, then having to spend money to fix it. i've never been scared to start ripping something apart, it's the getting it back together that's the adventure sometimes.
