Somebody earlier said $1800 That's about right $1,800 a month... Really I'm thinking about $7500 But roger the mistakes. I sold off a set of 33's and tube doors that didn't work out. I have been so busy I haven't added parts sitting in garage. 2 sets of bumper lights, a sub-woofer, and most of all an e- locker for the rear end...

Only $550 so far for a winch. Due to supply issues, I had to build a front bumper and winch plate and rear cargo box myself.

I do have $1,000 in used axles for my CJ I need to get around to putting on it.

You guys are nuts... I got tired of mud on the doors, so I spent $225 on side steps.

But then again, the first thing I did was take the back seat out, so I'm calling it a wash.

So far not too bad. Floor mats, rockblox mudflaps, screen protector, few cleaning supplies. Thats it so far, only had her 2 months. Plan on keeping things stock for a year or so to see what I need.

More than on my ex wife pretty soon. Retain counsel when she starts talking about boob jobs and vasectomies.

The first rule of mod costs is that we don't talk about mod costs.
True! Here on the Forum is OK ( a safe zone) but home, friends and family, no way.

Yeah, I was debating this the other day, because a little bit of me wants to see how the 4xe ages and possibly jump into one in '24 or later. So far, I haven't gone too crazy because I started this time with a Rubi, in '07 when I bought a very basic X - I swapped the tiny tires/wheels out right away.

'21 Rubi - $43k OTD (taxes, tags, everything)
Insurance didn't really change even with adding collision back on - roughly $500/year
Armorlite - Front/Rear - $675
Bedtred - Cargo - $300
Bartact - Front/Rear - $675
Updated recovery equipment - Shovel, traction boards (a lot of mud where I am), kinetic rope - $300
Deepsleep Mattress - $150
Bags for Doors - $200
Bikini Top - $100 (found an open box on the actual top, not a thing wrong with it)

Next up:
New front bumper, maybe a winch - $1500 or so
Portable air compressor -$100
Maybe the Bestop Sunrider Hardtop - $700

So roughly $3k already (since November) - yeah I think I'm keeping this one for 15 years like my JK.

I once did this with my old XJuggy. It was close to $50,000 over the course of 12 years at that point. All the work had been done myself or for the cost of materials and beer with friends. After that I decided never to add up mod cost again and just enjoy my vehicle hobby.
