well you put an "exo" on yours and you know what I think of that...
I don't know im just sayin that even at a killer price, itde be still a lot of money to build, although parting it out some would at least get your money back.
what am I saying, buy it, if it works out, awesome, if it doesnt part it or sell it for steel.
but just so you know, right off the bat, a good SAFE cage, we would have to make it of DOM (I wouldn't even think of help if it was anything less...) is gonna be spendy right off the bat, make sure you have a place to store it, because a vehicle like that will attract the complaints and code enforcements like crazy, and then make sure you have ways to haul it.
We'll start small. If it was my opinion, in your limited rock crawling experience, I would make you rock the IFS for a little while, and then move up into the swap. with enough time, the swap materials wouldnt be so much, I can keep an eye out for the deals.
Just remember how much money it will cost though. I know youre in college and I've witnessed first hand how you have to budget, so, make that youre main concern, because after 2-3 years with little progress, its just gonna be a thorn in your side...
