Nice truck, saw it on trade me and was going to have a look but someone beat me to it. probably not you though as it turned up on trade me again a few weeks later? Anyhow I had already bought mine by then so didn't have a look. Heard it was built by Sav at Nelson or at least he had something to do with it? He knows his Jeeps and is apparently quite a good guy with heaps of Jeep experience. Considered his red one in Nelson earlier last year but I wanted something road legal and tidy to use as a every day driver. Good luck with the tidy up and I look forward to seeing your Jeep sometime. :D
Cheers.

Jeez am I reading this correct? You are in Christchurch and I am in Whangarei. You bought your Jeep from Auckland and I got mine in Queenstown? We should have swapped notes and saved some travel each aye? :lol:

Keep the hardtop man, find somewhere to stash it, you'll regret selling it. They both have their time and place, and you'll kick yourself.

Looks awesome! Nice job so far :)
Just a question about the front bumper, is that a mini-stinger/pre-runner bar? Is something that comes out that far forward, would you get any issues when it comes to WOF time?
