Got a hijack going on now.... LOL
Transfer case and front axel from the JY is cheap. $20k is what the conversion companies here in Colorado are marking up their 4x4 vans. The work is being done by $15hr shade tree, so called mechanics. If I put an axel under my van I could start it off at $35k and sell at $30 and still make $20k on my 2010.
My only point on this thread was; If you have a $140k of your parents money burning a hole in your pocket, there are a TON of options out there at that price range.
Again, I was just adding my opinion as an option for the OP.
