Any idea if anyone has put together a list of those jurisdications? Couldn't find anything on a quick search of the forums...

Haven't amassed many additional parts. Really just the complete kit and wheels/tires. Figure a $5-6k discount compared to FFR should at least generate some interest...

Buy a 4 post lift so you keep the car AND get your space back!
That is if you don't need the money and have more to buy yourself one!

what would a storage unit cost you compared to losing your investment? If you are going to lose 7-8k then a storage unit might let you keep it or even work on it on occasion?

Picked up Kit Jan 22/2017! I am having fun now!!

I thought about that and would likely be close to breaking even. Would really just depend on how quickly I'd be able to have some real time to start working on it again. At this point, I'm not counting on that being anytime soon

Yes - It's still available. Really close to 20 posts so I can formally list it in the classifieds section. At this point, suspension and rear end are on along with most of the fuel and braking systems. Also have quite a bit of panels installed around the cab. Am planning on taking a bunch of pictures as soon as I can to get it formally listed.

That doesn't solve the issue of not having any time to work on it

True but that will come at some point. Selling and re-buying is always more expensive. I sat on my kit for a year before I put the first wrench on it. Now in year 10 and almost done....

Kit is still available. Will call it in the "rolling chassis" phase - suspension, rear end, and most of the fuel/braking systems are on. A lot of body panels are on. Here's one picture and I believe this will be my 20th post so I will officially list it in the classifieds section

The kit is still available if anyone is interested! Have gotten quite a few direct messages asking about its status.
