    For sure a cool project.

    Leaving out time factor makes the comparison to the cost to a SXS (or anything for that matter) pretty meaningless.

    Easier to focus on the end product and cash out of pocket.

    Kind of like boating - you probably don't really want to know the true cost anyway.

    Looks good!

    My buddy Lee has a bronco built by Leduc and he has the exact same hood prop, (adjustable paint pole ) it slides down and fits in the back.

    Make sure the middle seat sits high, or rolled back/leaned back.... the best set in Lee’s bronco is the 3rd seat as it sits taller than the driver/passenger and you sit more neutral (middle) of/in the wheelbase.

    My uncle has a chebby extra cab built by H&M and the 3rd seat sucks dog balls! His truck is $180,000 and I won’t ride with him in the 3rd seat! Ass is super low, knees are high I have to sit on top of a rolled up sleep bag to ride there as I get a little claustrophobic looking straight and seeing my kneecaps!

    Are you going to do a welded, leather wrapped dash?
