Jeep Envy - This jeep earned its named because of my Jeep Envy. Every jeep I see has something, a part, a detail, custom work... something that I would love to have on mine. One day while driving around my wife told me I had "Jeep Envy" so it stuck.
8 years ago I didn't know what a leaf spring was or how to change engine oil. So I told my wife I wanted to learn, I gave her the choice... "Small & Fast or Big & Slow" I was going to build a ricer and race it, or build a jeep.... you can see what she chose here......

Congrats Poke! Great rig! Unlike you though I see pretty much most of what I want in one Jeep...yours! 8)

Thanks to Anticanman for running such a great contest! Also thanks to our sponsors and all those who donated prizes!

Here's hoping that the last 12 months winners inspire me to be one of them in the next 12!!!
