History: My jeep addiction actually started after one of my dads best friends passed away due to cancer. We bought his 2003 tj from his wife and build that up for a bit, thats when the bug got me. when i was 15 My dad and i started looking for a YJ for me, we eventually found one with a 4cyl, 4in lift and 33in tires that we thought was perfect... well 2 4 cyl engines, 3 ax5s 2 transfer cases and a couple axle shafts later we decided it was time we had a little project. and from there it just kept going for about 8 months we worked on it just about every day until it looks as it sits today.

thanks to all for the votes, i already contacted Anticanman about this but i'd like to let you know that im handing the prize over to Anticanman. I feel that he deserves it more than anyone else here for putting this contest together every month even with the lack of past interest. this month turned over a new leaf for the yj competition i think and i'd like to congratulate him on a successful YJOTM competition and to thank him for his time and everything else he puts into this contest and the rest he does on the forum.

so there ya have it. thanks again everyone for all the votes and also thanks for everyone else participating who made this an interesting month

Wow! I don't even know what to say to that. Thank you! It's a very noble thing to do! I have the perfect person in mind for the shackles! I'm really at a loss for words!

Edit: I just spoke with AmmitOsiris and as a high school jeeper in need, he is going to be the recipient of the shackles.

I think Anticanman is well deserving of the prize for all the hard work he puts into YJOTM.
