none of my biz but im going to offer my 2 cents on if you should tell them or not (that theyre adopted) Unless of course their from another country or race which would make it obvious that they are. My parents told me from as long as i could remember that i was adopted, and with me it always made me question why i was givin up and all the crap that surrounds knowing that you were born to another mother.It gave me a complex i guess you could say, always testing my parents to see how far i could push them i guess to see if they too were going to give me up. i grew up thinking that knowing i was adopted was the way to go, i dont feel that way anymore i deont think there is any benifit in the child knowing they were born to another mother it just opens up pandora's box and once its open theres no going back. Sorry to get so personal on here, its obviously still an issue with me if thats what comes to my mind when i read you were adopting. Thanks again for youre awesome decision. And for shareing youre amazing skills with us.I hope youre son or daughter shares youre love and talent for working with your hands and you have a great time working with them.
OH and i would never trade my kids
Awesome! Thanks for your insight. I appreciate your viewpoint very much. We are adopting from Ethiopia. We do plan on sharing that they are adopted from the very beginning (as they will be too young to completely understand), however they will be treated no different than our biological kids. We want to be open & honest with them. Thanks again for sharing.

Oh ya very nice instal you have going! I got to drive one of these a few months back. My local dealer converted one then added a lift and tires. It looked and drove very nice. They ended up selling it for about $52k if I remember correctly! Too steep for me, but I sure did like it. I will continue to watch your come together

Re: Jeep JK8 Project

Its been a while. Here are some updated pics. Getting closer. I have put some temporary wheels on, so I could get my new tires mounted. I also have the new 3rd brake light installed.

Re: Jeep JK8 Project

Don't know if you saw the write up in JP magazine where they showed a install. The problems they faced was that the windows leaked and required urethane to stop it and were disappointed that it comes with no interior trim for the price. They cut up the original to make it look better finished off. Just thought I would mention it so you are aware of the first especially.

Re: Jeep JK8 Project

Sorry for the long delay. Here are some updated pics.

I am about 95% done. I just have some finishing details that I want to get buttoned up, and it will be ready to sell.

I am thinking somewhere in the $33K range, as I have seen some selling anywhere from $43K to $70K.

Also, on a side note, I have a 2nd JK8 kit that I planned on building, but have decided to just sell the kit. So, let me know if anyone is interested in that as well. They go for about $5000 new, and I will let it go for $4000.

Re: Jeep JK8 Project

Awesome build! Any leaks or any mods you had to make from the original kit?

Re: Jeep JK8 Project

Not a drop on the leak question.
I have made several mods to the kit to make it more custom.
The 3rd brake light on the rear tire carrier is one.
The wire rerun on the rear taillights is another.
The added 3rd brake light on the hardtop is another.
We also body seam sealed a body line beneath the doors.
Several other little things.
