Comes down to what tent, rack, gear you want. You can get a cheaper smittybilt RTT for under a grand, a rack probably under a grand. Lift and tires will probably run you 3k if your going 35s. Bumpers probably 1-2k depending what you want. Winch, and then your typical Overland equipment fridge, cookware etc.

I can see doing a similar build for well under 10k if your smart about what you buy.

Mentioned in the video I saw on YT on [Banned Site]'s channel that this whole build cost around $70K. So base model $35K + $35K in mods.

EVO did mention in another video that they bought the beefier axles for $14K. So if I were to do this exact build on 35s and still maintain the stock wide Dana 44s (max tow package), how much you think this overlanding build will be?

My Sport S build is $47K & Rubicon 52K (MSRP) with comparable options. I might have to forget about the Rubicon and go with the Sport S if I can get my build close to what EVO just did for $10K in mods. To save money I will just replace the front bumper and keep the rear set-up the way it is. Thanks for the suggestions.

I just got my JT yesterday, and completely randomly, I can across this today! Hopefully I wasn’t breaking any rules doing this, but it was in a parking lot on my way home from lunch today, and I couldn’t help but stop and look at it in person!
