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!

When I was 14 I thought jeeps looked cool so I got a job and started saving up for one. By the time I was 15 I bought my 88 yj with 128k completely stock. I knew absolutely nothing about cars, but I thought it looked good so I didnt care about the mechanical condition about 6 months later the clutch went out so I bought a repair manual and taught myself how to do it. After that all hell broke loose and I was constantly working on it... Long story short I have now replaced every part on my jeep besides the body and frame. Now that im 19 I have my jeep just about where I want it, until I go 4 link and full width axles.

Just after I finished SOA and 8.8 swap

Great selection this month, I narrowed it down to a few but Scary Animal got my vote again this month. I'm a little partial to spring overs and 4.2s.

Having to tow your Jeep down the road with a stock truck is like water skiing naked, its embarrassing, your being pulled by a single line, and it hurts a little but in the end all you can do is look back on it and laugh!

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

Voted, and there is a much more even playing field this time, there isn't one has done extensive off road mods like some in some past months to make it really stand out

Wave as you pass me :D

The problems of owning 2 Jeeps ... I never know which one to work on or which YJ gets the next mod ...
