I was a wanna-be 4X4 owner. So I bought one, a late 80’s Bronco, bone stock except for nerf bars. Now I’m a wanna-be off “built truck” owner and I’m discovering that it’s very expensive to be one without taking major shortcuts. Every time I see a “done” truck now all I wonder is how much did that guy spend. Noting is as simple as it seems when doing up a truck. For example, I’m considering installing a suspension lift, (2+ K) my mechanic informs me that my drive shafts will now be the end or close to the end of there travel and to do the lift right I should change the drive shafts and that custom ones may be needed. ($$$$$$) (Please, I don’t want to debate my mechanics views on suspension lifts, it’s only meant as an example, everyone can tell stories about how a seeming simple mod turned out to be a major expense) What I’m curious about is how much coin are some of you pumping into your trucks? Especially those of you driving the really sweet rigs like totally done CJ’s, early Bronco’s and such. I could drive a rusted piece of crap with a huge body lift, bald 38’s and a worn out drive train, but I’d never trust it 40 miles in the bush, and that’s why I want a truck, to go off road, a long way off road. I can’t figure out how some of you guy’s drive the rigs that you do, what’s up?
