September YJOTM winner is: jsawduste!

The time has come and the votes are in, jsawduste is the winner! And as a prize he won a $50 gift card to 4wheelparts. Being the generous man that he is, he would rather see the contribution go to one of the remaining runners up. After a few brief discussions, he chose Louie4 as the best person for the prize and just automatically got my vote for YJ of the YEAR!

If you missed the poll, here is a recap of why he won this month:

This YJ was a ground up build. That is no specific donor vehicle was used to to start with..Parts were secured based on need, condition and availability.. For the example the tub came from rust free Arizona. The frame from Georgia and so on.

List or parts/modifications.
1. Engine
Started out as a 93 4.0. Features a 4.2 12 cwt crank. Eagle rods. Custom zero deck pistons from Diamond Racing that give a static compression or 10.3:1. Hesco 270/480 can advanced 4*. Ported head with stock size valves and Chevy valve springs. Roller Rockers from Mopar. 24 lb injectors fed by an adjustable fuel pressure gauge. Edebrock header into a stainless steel exhaust..DUI ignition system. Hi flow water pump and three row radiator. Fed with a high volume oil pump and Brad Penn oil. Fully balanced and blue printed.

2. Transmission and transfercase.
Center-force dual friction clutch drives an NV4500HD from a Dodge diesel pickup. Transmission is coupled to an Atlas II with 3.8 gears. Flat belly skid and also an engine skid plate that extends up to the harmonic balancer.

3. Axles
Front axle is a HP44 from a 78 3/4 ton Ford. Narrowed and the C`s rotated to correct for caster angle. Superior shafts are drive by a Detroit Locker and 5.13 gears. Hi steer with Reid Racing knuckles and NWF 4 bolt arms. LPW Girdle.

Rear axle is an 8.8 with Mark Williams billet main caps. Held in place with ARP studs. Ratech crush sleeve kit. A Detroit Locker and 5.13`s. Moser 31 spline chromo shafts and Ford 9 inch outer bearings. Ford SVO backing plates and disc/parking brake system. Full TNT truss. LPW girdle.

37 x 15 MT/R`s for street mounted on 10" beadlock wheels. 37 Maxxis CC`s also mounted on 10" Beadlocks for off-road.

4. Suspension
Custom Alcan SOA Zero lift springs. Front axle pushed out 3 inches. Same for the rear. Bilstein 5150 shocks on each corner. Greaseable shackles. Custom traction bar eliminates axle wrap. Currie Anti Rock Sway bar.

5. Body
Complete Speedliner bed coating 360* on tub, hood fenders etc.. Color tinted with blue with black accents. Satin gloss mixed into mixture to add some shine. TNT Crusher corners, sliders and front fenders.
Custom front and rear bumpers with a winch mounts and various accessory mounts.

6. Interior
Custom dash and Autometer gauge package. Full cage tied into the frame. LED lighting. MasterCraft seats with 5 point harnesses. Undien CB, Alpine, Polk handle the entertainment. Garmin 76CSX GPS tells me where to go.

7. Misc
Kilby On Board Air system. Full PSC ram assist steering system with cooler. Full hydroboost with an externally adjustable brake proportioning valve.Complete rewire from headlight to taillight. New connectors, wiring and the electrical architecture has changed dramatically from the factory.. Twin Optima Yellow tops powered by a 180 amp alternator. Warn 9500 winch. Piaa lighting x 4. Roundeyes conversion headlights with a 55w/130w rating. LED taillights.

8. Pictures

Thank you to all the JF folks who voted. Your vote is very much respected and appertained..

There were many EXCELLENT rigs to choose from. But being YJ owners, you know that !!

Again I appreciate your vote and wish you all "happy trails" for years to come.

Thanks again.

Not many can argue the effort Louie4 has put into supporting JF. He uses his YJ in ways many of us could only dream about. He has a storehouse of knowledge and is willing to share it.

Let`s give Louie4 a big thank you for all his help and guidance.

Love it! It seems very close to how I would like to do mine (just probably not as big). I love the color and the lighter blue accents in the engine and interior. I had always wondered how that would look and now I know. Congrats!

Congrats! A very nice build. Lets see some action pics. That thing looks like it needs to be in Moab @ BFE!

Nice little trailer. Been thinking about building one very much like it.

IF things go right I am hoping o have it JV come February. Might be able to catch the KOH week.

Been talking to Blaine and need to PM Joe and see if we can all met up.

Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks, and keep us posted on that. I've been wanting to go down there to KOH for a long time, but just never seem to get the time and all. I'm sure Joe will be posting up dates and such at a later time.
