I was into import cars and a real nice old lady t-boned my 1988 Audi Quattro and banana'd the chassis. I bought the YJ bone stock in 2009. I started wheeling it in 2010 on 34" Swampers and a 4" lift and have been enjoying it since. In the last month I have just finished a total rebuild of the front axle and swapped in the Dana 44, so I only have the one dirty picture from last weekends Ohio4x4 club ride of the current setup.

Bought this Jeep as a stocker from my father-in-law. I decided I wanted to learn about vehicles, and weld, and fabricate metal... so I taught myself via my YJ.
My YJ is a 1993 with the 2.5, ax-5, and 231. Pretty standard setup, she's got 3.5" Skyjacker Springs, Stock length Boomerang Shackles from VACJ5, quick disconnects, SYE, 33x10.5x15 KM2's, ARB Snorkel, TJ flares in the rear, 19lb/hr Ford 5.0 Injectors, VACJ5 CB antenna mount, cobra dx19, best top trail max front seats, and a rampage center console. And here's a list of what I've got waiting to go on... 8.8 w/discs and 4.10's, JB4x4 High Steer bracket, extended brake lines, an e-fan set up and 4" flush mount LED tail lights. My plans are to have it setup and SOA with the 8.8 by May running an Aussie in the rear and 4.88's front and rear, possibly on 35"s again (I say again because it was on 35's when I first got it), and eventually buy a frameless soft top! It's my pavement pounder, I absolutely love it, and cannot wait to continue building her up! Thanks for keeping this contest going!
