But if I enjoy the Baja as much as I think I'm gonna enjoy it I think 4-wheels is where I want to go. That brings me to my question - I have a 90 XJ 4dr, 4X4, 5-spd. It was my daily driver for a couple yrs but now pretty much sits unless a friend needs a car. I was wondering if it is worth holding onto to build into a Jeepspeed racer. I have a pretty big garage so I can stick it there, put it up on jackstands and tinker little by little and I am fairly mechanically inclined but only know hand tools - no welding, etc. Here's the question - what am I looking at for a total, basic build cost to get something that can be run in Jeepspeed? Doesn't have to be competitive but don't want to break the second I hit the 1st jump leaving Ensenada downtown.
T and J put together a Jeepspeed kit that includes almost everything for 10k.

For a complete build you're looking at 15 - 20k. You would actually do better buying a used Jeepspeed in terms of cost as well as build time. Don't ask me how i know =P

You are probably right about buying a used Jeepspeed but where's the fun in that. Food for thought tho. Thanks.
