Project "Free Jeep" a.k.a Project "FJ" - Running Tally
Here is a list of all the contributors/donators to Project "FJ". This list will grow as the project progresses. I will be documenting everything that goes into this project and all the people that help to make it happen. The list will become long and I will probably institute some sort of STAR system that will help to indicate who has contribute what by a visual star, sort of like how eBay helps to identify sellers and buyers of certain statuses.

The links on the previous page will help you to understand the "FJ" project further. Read on and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Free Jeep Project.

01/14/07 Total Cost $3611.60* 58 Hours
* Total reflects cost of parts purchased, not including food, diesel , tools, shop supplies and bribes. The actual total of all costs is $4093.60, Whereas the total of misc costs is $482.00. Not exactly FREE... ;)
NOTE: I just wanted to let everyone know that this is a total for the expenditure of what it has taken to obtain all the parts. CertifiableJeep does not condone drinking and driving. Although frosty beverages are tasty and they have a way of getting more free parts then originally anticipated, we can't be held responsible for what the individual does with the gift once they take ownership of said gift. Drink Responsibly and don't drink and drive.

If you would like tasty beverages or t-shirts, become a donator to the Project "FJ" and we might be able to work something out.

Also, let's give Jen a big hand for picking up the tires and rims. She had a lot of driving that day... clap clap clap.

One more round of applause for Tony, he lent me a hand in picking up the heavy parts and scavenging a decaying Jeep. He had a lot of time spent alone with George the Goat in the back 40, I have never seen a goat so happy... clap clap clap.
