Talking J.e.e.p.

Just Empty Every Pocket.

I would like to see everybody post a picture of their babies, and roughly how much you have invested into it.

I've put about 500 in, about to put 5-600 more. After it was stolen I have to replace the stereo and winch.

Bought it for $2200, $300 to repair the Peugeot (completely stupid thing to do) and after a month had to replace that with an AX15 so another $300. Had to replace the axles, $300, hard top $200, radiator $200, misc parts and fluids so at least another $300.

I got mine for $2300. I've put in about $3000 on top of that now. The most expensive things I have bought were the 4" suspension lift and hardtop I just picked up. She's almost a brand new Jeep now...LOL

Paid $8100 from NewWestminster to Pr.Rupert BC It came cute and I'm a girly girl so I put the Lashes on ;P I love it too much right now to get rough with him, and I can't afford it, but when I can! A lift and tow package and beefy tires are at the top of my list & a Subwoofer/amp for the center console ! And hopefully a few trips to Wrangler weeks to learn all the tricks of climbing and Wheeling!

Bought it for $2400. Had to replace the frame a year later and did an engine swap at the same time. With all of the stuff I've bought for it, I'm guessing I'm in it for around $10k-12k.

Bought it about 3 months ago Paid $2400 but had to replace rear diff gear and houseing which set me back about $400. Also had to have the linkage cables adjusted which was about a $100. Overall about $3000 with replaced exhaust. Best toy I have had so far.

Paid 1500$ w/ busted t case and topless. Spent 600$ on rebuilt t case, 500$ lift and shocks, 500$ Craigslist tires on ultra rims, 50$ bikini top, built my own rear bumper and spare tire swing mount 0$, tore off ugly stock front cow pusher and plastic jeep dealie, replaced with diamond plate for winch 0$, looks like I found a fellow member willing to trade family roll bar for sport bar 0$. Right around 3200$ now but I'm still topless. Looking at frameless top 500$ 2150 mc carb is in the future as well so 4000$ if I don't have any unexpected issues. Wish I could post a pic.
