Have your truck gotten "there"

I am using there as the magical place where you are finally over the hump of what to concur on it.

My "there" point came to me today when a buddy was going by lucky 8 and wanted to know if I wanted anything that he would be transporting via RURR back to folks on his friends and family network.

I looked through lucky 8s website but did not find any pieces that were must haves or "wow" I need that.

I think I am "there" . Boy did it take a lot of freakin funds, weekends, forum postings, forum searchings to get there.

For me there is:
GM Gen 3 conversion
Rovertym 3 inch lift and suspension
Safari guard front bumper and winch
Double Jerry Can swing away tire carrier
Rock and frame sliders
Front limited slip
Rear detroit
33x15 KM2s
Rear lock and folds old style for kids to safely ride in back
VDO vision series

It seems like a short list but boy did "there" take me 7 years. I wish I really new what I wanted in the first place as I could have been "there" a long time ago and would not have wasted money on just to name a few items:
full doors
fiberglass top
a 4.6
rebuilt 3.9
2 OME lift
rear bench seat
fastback top
best top
rovers north top
full tonneau cover
1/2 tonneau cover
285/16 AT
33x12.50 KM1s
regular bilsteins
stock shocks
the list is endless.

Anyone else "there"? and how did you do it

I thought I was close but then I went to VOT and now I need to switch out the front Tru Trac for an ARB, get rid of the steel cable for synthetic line, plus some rock sliders plus...
