I put a pencil to the Aqualu route and figured a truck built with all toyota parts would cost close to 70k to build the way I would want.
Yeah, I'd be on a much tighter budget doing things that I could and making decisions based on budget. It would get close to what I'd want, I know the level you build to and it is second to none. Thanks for the real world advice. I am thinking of a bit of a shade tree project.

Thanks Gary. I was sad to see that your last project was totaled. Glad you are all safe!
