I think I have a problem

I have my 95 yj.
Then I wanted a cj
Then decided my yj was enough
Then I wanted to build a tj
Then decided I could build a much better jeep with my yj for the cost.
Now I'm dreaming about jeepsters with oddfire v6's
Or v8's

Should I seek help?

All time favorite? Of everything you have ever built or driven?

Exactly why I think it is so valuable. How many years of building jeeps did it take for you to turn out the one that you felt was perfect?

30 years ago huh? I'm surprised you waited so late in life to start building

Here's the guy I stumbled on that made me want a Jeepster.
http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/cto/4055562367.html

I would build my own though.

I'd want a stick and a lower revving engine. But the size is spot on


And 74 and older here don't require emission inspections. So you just go grab tags when you need them.

your problem is simple. You need multiple jeeps. Build one for this, another for that. as in , your mudder / crawler whatever and your DD. May your bank account be blessed and your wrenches never fail my friend....its WD 40 til the end.

That's my plan. Getting the rest of the jeep done first.

But been looking at the different Cummins motors
