If thats worth that much, then I wonder what my pile of crap is worth if I charged myself per hour.....



$20K in parts if I bought it all new. (total guess)
30 hours a week for say 6 months at $80/hr shop rate. (total guess again)
~600 hours * $80/hr = $48,000
$2,000 for "tip / delivery bonus"

Guess mine is worth $70K if I use 'his' math.



Seriously, what type of shop rate would you have to have to be able to charge that much?

If money was not an option and I had a choice between yours half done for 107,000 and this one, I'd choose yours any day of the week.

Great build btw, maybe I can get down and wheel with you at TSF someday.  I'd love to see your beast at work.

Any guy who takes his woman wheeling enjoys her. A woman who is owned is left at home to cook, clean, and keep beer cold. So if this offends you you should stop looking and go have some tacos.    :rofl2: And a beer. If your old enough.   :beerchug:   :beer:

Seriously? I read all 7 pages of that. I could find 100 better things to do with 107,000 still straight axle, dual, and lock, exo, and put 40's on my truck and have around 90k to spare after buying a welder pipe bender and all the stuff to do all my own work, beer to fund the project, and buying all marlin parts.
