List of specs and/or modifications: 1995 Sahara 4.0 w/5 speed - Pristine condition inside and out. I got it from a guy that had towed it behind his motor home and the thing that makes it exceptionally special is that EVERYTHING works. Previous owner replaced the stereo. (Also looks to have replaced the passenger fender, at one point in time, because the paint doesn’t quite match). I changed to different Jeep rims and added tires (sitting on 31s) along with painting the hinges/bezels black. Going to be lifting it, and modifying, soon, but this is how it sits now.

Possibly SOA, but let's not get ahead of myself.

Why it's special:
I became the owner of my 93 YJ back in 2009, as a Senior in high school who had no form of transportation due to 2 cars breaking down constantly. Since then, I've stumbled upon websites, including Jeep Forum, that has allowed me to improve my vehicle. Since being in College and working a lower paying job (Not whining I swear), Most upgrades I have done to my YJ have been home built and not bought from Jeep Parts Retailers. The biggest thing I love about my Jeep, is that no matter what, Cold, Hot (115 degrees in summer), or Rain, It has never given up and failed to start. Its had it's mechanical problems that come standard, but It's a love that's only in it's early stages. I have done small upgrades to the Jeep, and I plan on doing one of the harder jobs to accomplish (Engine Swap) once time and funds allow, but this thing is one of the best Vehicles I have driven, and I can guarantee that I won't be selling it... EVER. I don't plan on actually having a chance at winning, due to further down the upgrade trail YJs applying, but I feel that if by some miracle (or lack of entries) My YJ deserves to be YJ of the Month just because it will be greeted with open arms due to the awesome community that the YJ Technical forums have to offer, regardless of it's upgrades. I actually can't wait to see who wins, but I saw that 10 applicants need to apply and by-george some beautiful YJ deserves to be YJ of the Month for it's looks, performance, and capabilities. And if by some reason 10 applicants don't apply, and that YJ doesn't get the spot light it deserves due to that reason, I want to be able to know that I tried to be apart of that 10, so that it will have a chance. Sorry for the long paragraph, and here are some linked pictures. Thanks!

Jeep name: Dixie

This is our family's first Jeep. We have been wanting one for years and were finally able to get one recently. I haven’t had much time to work on it since I'm still deployed to Iraq but have some plans for her once I get home. What makes this Jeep special is of course the personal meaning of finally owning a Jeep (for the whole family) and how great of shape she's in after 183,000 miles (when I bought her). She is amazingly clean and sound for being 21 years old and with that many miles. I am only the 3rd owner of this beautiful machine. She has her quirks but what YJ doesn't? Please consider Dixie for YJOTM!

Username: g4x4xgeoff’s YJ (GEOFF HAWLEY)
I’m 21 years old. Taught myself everything I know about jeep repair, and bought this from a junkyard when I was 15. Spent 3 years replacing rusty panels/frame sections etc. enjoyed it for two. Steering box ripped off the frame last march, yearlong rebuilt brought it to this!

It’s a 94 YJ, 4.0L bored 40 over, with a 5 speed ax-15 swap, SYE conversion, CV driveshaft, SOA and full custom ballistic 7/8” high steer, with power steering cooler. Sterling 10.25 rear with disc brake conversion, 78 Dana 60 snow fighter front, both with 4.10 gears. E350 master cylinder and dual diaphragm booster from a 2003 Cherokee. Boomerang 1” shackles, custom made differential covers. Four hella 500 lights, flush led tail lights, custom built front and rear bumpers, reverse lights, kill switch, marine audio, bed lined interior and roll cage, CJ-7 tailgate. All sit on 37x12.50r17 pro comp extreme all terrain tires with h2 rims.

Here is my 1990 YJ for consideration in the July YJ of the Month contest. My name is Jerry Huber and I have had this Jeep for about 6 years. It gets wheeled in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Canada.

1990 YJ Wrangler with serious off-road modifications including: 350 Chevy V8 with auto transmission, twin stick transfer case, long arm, long travel relocated shocks, unique three point rear axle suspension and springs resulting in about 6” lift. The Jeep has been built for heavy duty durability and performance. One ton rated Dana 44 front axle and GM 14 bolt rear with lockers and four wheel disc brakes. Wheels are 20” American Racing Mojave simulated beadlocks with 39.5” IROCs. Swing away spare tire, on-board air, full roll cage, rockcrawler bumpers, winch and a killer stereo along with storage system for off road recovery equipment and tools. Bestop wide TJ style flares and a custom cowl induction hood scoop/vent make this JEEP a unique ride with great off-road capability and the civility to drive on the street.

Don't be too concerned. The rules don't state "how good" your rig needs to be to be considered a contestant. You simply have to follow the guidelines to enter & you'll have a chance to win if the votes sway your way.
