God where to begin...

Norcal_Chris- Man, all the right parts are there, the thing looks beast and what really gets me (maybe I'm jealous!) is that you only spent $4k out of pocket! Some men are born with the ability to wheel and deal (see what I did there? haha) and you sir, not only can, but can build one bad Jeep in the process! This would be an easy vote for me, except that when it comes to the YJs, I like the square eyes! Nothing wrong with the round eyes at all, but I did have to double take to make sure there were still leafs under it in those pics! Other than that, top notch work, very beast mode, and a great eye for detail!

Rproject- I love a clean, almost stock set up. Your paint is beautiful and I love the history you wrote. Especially about showing the other guys on 37s just what a mildly build Jeep can do! The windshield down pic is great, and your attention to all the cosmetic details is flawless. About the only thing that turns me off is the tube bumpers. I know they're pretty classic, but I just never liked the look of them. Other than that, a great Jeep and one I would love to DD every single day!

PeterSyz- This is the first time I've seen your Jeep. It's awesome! That color was a great choice! Especially matching the top and the body. With the black and hint of red, it's a very unique, and gorgeous combination. It's the right combination of tough and clean that I love! About the only mod that doesn't fall into my taste is the Bushwacker pocket flares, but mostly I would like to see some more off road pics and hear a little more history from you! Other than that, I love your set up!

Grandboost98- Dude, bikini pic? So boss! Your attitude is one reason I have voted for you the last couple months in previous contests! I love the rough and ready look of your Jeep and love that you wheel the crap out of it and still drive it to work every day. Totally relate! It's just cool!

Randonexplosion- Love your bad mother dude. I love how you took on a massive motor swap all willy nilly and not only got it done, but took your Jeep to Moab shortly after and kicked it's butt! Your Moab pics totally showcase how rad your jeep is! Not to mention we share a similar taste in frosty beverages! I feel like you need a more aggressive bumper to really tie in the front of your Jeep and that thing would look like it could swallow hybrids whole! I'm cracking open a PBR right now just so you know haha!

AmmitOsiris- Your Jeep totally shows off the "YJ attitude" of "f-it!" Got in a fender bender, ended up with a two tone paint job, ended up loving it to the point that you're running with it now? Man so rad. You just don't see the other model wrangler/cj owners having such a cool attitude about their Jeeps. And as your first car, you are waaaay ahead of the curve! I had a cj7 as my first rig and got the Jeep bug early too. Keep up the good work!

Kgb_m3- Man your Jeep is almost pornographic to me! Some days I wish I would have went a slightly different route with my own rig and pretty much ended up exactly where you are. I'm a sucker for clean white Jeeps, and yours is just that. Also you have an awesome mix of quality, off the shelf parts, and homebrew/homefabbed stuff! Love it.

Carlos14- As noted above, I totally love white Jeeps. I loved yours when it was white, but man, it looks even more pissed off and awesome with the new paint! I dig all your lights and am kind of jealous! Out here where I live, in winter, it gets dark (like night dark) by 5pm and I've never felt like I had enough lighting to really enjoy the winter wheeling here. So yeah, kind of jelly of that! You've done a lot on a shoestring budget, and that's awesome. Hat's off to you bro. Keep up the awesome work. Can't wait to see where your rig ends up.

jbrown73- Another clean Jeep. Your cage makes me drool. I wish I personally would have paid more attention to issues like that sooner in my own YJ. The black on black looks great! My only gripe is that you don't have any pics of it tearing it up! Other than that it's a really nice YJ. Hope to see you out west one day!

Ashland82391- One of my favorite people and Jeeps on here. You had so many problems with your Jeep, but have shown amazing dedication and not only keeping it wheeling ready, but road worthy. Reading your build from front to back, you've tackled a lot of problems head on with little to no prior experience, all the while maintaining a pretty optimistic and positive attitude. All your work looks great and you have a totally one of a kind Jeep and your love for it totally shows. The only thing that is drives me nuts is that fugly t-case drop haha!

Man, I still can't make up my mind!

Cheers

Thanks for the shout out Sparrows! I cant believe what happened to your rig! I hope you get back in another Jeep soon. Your rig/build thread has been quite inspiring

And thanks to everyone else that has voted for me! Means a lot!

I voted for Ashland, Ive followed his build thread as well and see that he beats on his daily 2.5 just like me

Thank you. Thank you very much. I agree on the bumpers. They're one of the items I still need to change out, but $1,000 for new front/rear bumpers is not in the budget right now.
