I'm honored to be allowed to put this together for you guys each and every month.

I extend my congratulations to '92VegasYJ for taking this contest quite easily! Lots of competition but all good in sportsmanship overall. Here is a recap of the specs that beat the rest.

Congrats, Chris! 'eluva rig you got there. Lots of time/sweat/cussing/joy there.

I showed your pic of Bronco peak-3A connector to my jeep and it pissed itself.

BTW... looks like you relocated the front license plate right off the front of your jeep.
