Jeep Itself   $2,500.00  
Stuff done already      
Radiator   $120.00 This includes shipping
Water pump & misc. hoses etc.   $110.00 This goes with the new radiator
Misc engine stuff   $125.00 I counted this because I knew I needed to change fluids & stuff when I bought the thing.
Rusty's air tube.   $70.00 Rusty's is here. This includes shipping.

I sold the stock tires and wheels for $130.00¸ so the net cost of the new is $35.00.
Rear Bumper   $325.00 I got it at Custom 4X4 Fabrications I bought with insurance money, so I don't think it really counts, but here it is anyway.
Front Bumper   $128.00 The build page
