Default Rolled jeep... finally getting back on the trail

Rolled my jeep about a year an a half ago on the trails .. about time I posted some pics.
Had the jeep rebuilt, new roof from a donor, new roll cage, and now putting a new 350 chevy in (I have another thread on that I started today).
anyway, thought you guys would be interested:

Sweet! Always nice to see them brought back to life rather then scrapped!

Looks amazing but it sure is alot of work (& $) for such a old vehicle. Sentimental reasons?

cost benefit analysis. it would have cost less to get a new truck and transfer everything over, but would have taken me a lot more time. I wanted to get back on the trail, this was the easiest and quickest. Also wanted to keep the 350, but didn't feel like going through the swap. Again. Rebuilding cost more $$, but cost me less time, and didn't have to go through the agony of swapping a 350 (which, TBH, if I got a newer jeep, I just would have stuck with the i6).
