RIG....PARTS.....MONEY$$$$$$$

HOW MUCH MONEY HAVE YOU PUT INTO YOUR RIG ???????

I sit here and think about all the goodies I'd luv to but for mine and then think....." Where the hell am I going to get that much money?" I mean you can blow $1000 on 3 items in a matter of seconds. Anyone have the winning powerball ticket numbers ?????
Do not include all the blood,sweat,and tears that have gone into it, I know that is priceless.

Re: RIG....PARTS.....MONEY$$$$$$$

Well, lets see.
1990 Samurai $2500
breeze 4.5" spoa, breeze crossover $656
Shocks and brakelines $200
4 rims $100
4 Cooper Discoverer STTs $600
Lifetime balance on the tires $60
Valve stems, I dont remember
Lockright Rear locker $350
CB, Antenna, coax, etc $50
Pioneer CD deck $170
Then I bought 4 u-joints, I think they were about $100
Rear wheel bearings and seals. $46 each for the bearings
$2 each for the seals
I havent kept track of gas, oil, filters, windshield wipers, that stuff.

I get $4882, but its more than that because theres tax on top of a lot of that stuff. I doubt its over $5000, though. Not bad if you ask me. All those are in Candian $.

Re: RIG....PARTS.....MONEY$$$$$$$

I am always doing this calculation in my mind, but it's near impossible to do given the nature of trading parts. For instance, I got my sami in the first place by trading someone a different vehicle for it. No price was ever discussed. Even trade.

How do you take into account the cost of stuff that you have purchased and then taken off and kept or sold or traded? OR is this just a "current configuration" kind of price list?

1. FInd a LWB and restore it frame up, but with danatrac 44's front and rear on 35's

2. Buy a crap lot of tube and parts and make a rock buggie.

Re: RIG....PARTS.....MONEY$$$$$$$

I typed one response but deleted it cuz the list was so long.

So to make it short ive got about 5 grand (totaled receipts tonite) and its still basically (got a locker) stock.

I paid 2400 for it and then rolled it. It cost 1200 to put it back together cuz thats i all i had to drive at the time. The rest was spent on Needed items, like clutch cables, clutches, bearings, u joints, seals, tune ups, etc. Its been worth every penny. Im glad im finally able to make it a trail rig and start building it up.

I sold a Scout 800 that i built that had dana 60's, a dana 300 t-case, wide ratio t-18 tranny, sittin on 34" swampers to keep my sami. That was the best thing i ever did, im glad i sold it and not my sami.
