Is a T-Bucket considered an exotic ford? Well, maybe some are.

Anyway, anybody here ever built one? My dad and I are thinking about selling the Jeep and buying a kit from Total Performance, Inc. We have a 5.0 and a C4 to use in it.

The problem is that some of the parts they sell are so darned expensive! The kit is very complete, and costs $4000. It's the rest of the things, like a radiator ($770) and an upholstery kit ($900) that are killing the somewhat "low cost" idea. We would like to try to keep the cost around $7000, but with these prices, no luck for us.

We can round up stuff like front brakes and rear axles, but these things seem to be got-you-over-a-barrel-so-I'll-charge-you-a-lotta-$ type of items. I have been looking around at other T-Bucket websites, and have been able to find better deals that they offer, but the radiator and upholstery kits have got me stumped. Anybody got any suggestions? Any building tips? Here is the link to their kit, if you wanna see it:

I believe Scoop {Fastymz} is building a T-bucket with his dad.

I looked at your link, I got to say that's a brilliant marketing program. But I agree with you, the stuff is expensive!

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.
