    I say keep going with what you have. sounds lik a sweet rig already. and if you buy a new rig already set up your miss out on all the. I best part of owning a jeep is you always wnat to upgrade and you always can make new project ands wish list. as for street legal. it all depends on what state you live. so research that before you make you decision. i am still new to wheeling but thats my opinion.

    My 2cents is: a. keep building what you have and get another as a DD or b. make this one your DD and get another to start from scratch with, may be do somethings diferently, smarter or better. I am starting to think there is no such thing as to many jeeps just got my first one and am already looking for another for my daughter. It looks like I'm going to have to start looking for a garage for the vehicles with a house attached to it.
