    Default if you had a million dollars

    The idea is to list what you'd do if you could spend money in the following categories:

    $100-150 (not much, but how often do you really get more?)

    $500-1000

    $1000-2000

    and any amount....

    For me it goes like this:

    $100-150
    right now I'd get some decent fog lights or some used rocker protection. I gotta cough up for the rockers before I do anything else!

    $500-1000
    Old Man Emu 2in lift. Can't say why, but I love the old man emu stuff. I don't want a huge lift because I want it to be ultra LCG in the long term.

    $1000-2000
    Metal cloak Over Arch fenders, rear fenderwell trim, SYE, MML, and Belly up Skid; used tires so my 33s wouldn't look dwarfed. Then I'd have to start thinking about axle upgrades because the next size up would look dwarfed, too.....

    Any amount?
    I'd drop a CJ2A body on a new frame; d60 front and rear with everything set up to run 40's with LCG and a longer wheel base. I'd put some monster propane powered v-something in it and load it all on coilovers with air lockers and turn signals and wings that snap out when you nose it off a cliff edge...
    Keep it slow. I can't afford spare parts.

    For me it isnt that hard honestly I've thought about this alot, and most of my wants are either big money or add up to big money so that is how im going to roll...

    1000-2000: Jet Ski's (multiple), the remaining upgrades for my jeep bumpers (F/R), rear LA's, winch

    Any amount: but a new to me 5.9 GC, Buy my parents houses, all of my son's tutition paid for, my self a house, and a large amount of stock in water and power companies

    I was talking about only jeeps, but all that makes a sobering amount of sense! We all have to focus on the bigger picture most of the time.

    100-150: Rhino Line the interior

    500-1000: Quality winch

    1k-2k: Axles, as beefy as I can get


    Any:

    Buy a rust bucket CJ and build it from scratch. I would just need the money for tools and parts. Low COG with 44's and a dodge 360 would be nice. I would take it and compete in King Of The Hammers or something.

    To easy...
    100-150...A really nice steak and some Guinness around a campfire after burning a tank of gas wheeling.
    500-1k...Heated seats for my old buns
    1-2k.. Selectable lockers or a Klune or Atlas 4sp t-case
    Any...A 100% restored 1945 Willys MB. Enough money to build my own garage as I want it on enough land that I can't remember a neighbor that may complain of my hoarding of parts jeeps. Time and the funds to build whatever strikes my fancy without cutting corners or waiting years for money that never comes. Wrench when I want...explore and travel when I don't! Kind of like Jay Leno without the car wax and papparazzi!
