Entry 3)SimonTuffGuy

Specs:
I purchased my 1995 Wrangler in the summer of 2005, after driving my buddies TJ around the parking lot. He had warned me before my parking lot spin, "Don't drive it... You'll end up buying one!" and so it happened. The crisp, clean YJ was bone stock and owned by a lawyer for the first 10 years of its existance. Slowly, but surely the mods came along... It started with a new soft top and a 31's on Crager steelies, then the fender flares and AtoZ rocker guards... Once those were done, I thought that bumpers and a winch would make it look tough, then some LiteDOT led tails went on (and off, and on... About 7 times, due to getting some malfunctioning sets! Hah). Most recently, it finally got lifted with the RoughCountry 2.5" lift and shackles. Upcoming mods include a set of 33's, 4banger axles for 4.10 gears, and a snorkel because they look cool.

Why it is special to me: I bought my Jeep the week I got my license with my own money. I have had it for about 2 years now, and my parents have yet put a single dollar into the Jeep, and I like it that way. I take great satisfaction knowing that every single thing on my Jeep has been paid by me with no help from family or friends. I have big plans for my Jeep, as do most Jeepers, but being a freshman in college has limited my work. Usually I work all summer, spending very little on anything, and then in one week blow nearly all of my summers earnings on Jeep parts. This past summer I bought the winch, steering stabilizer, locker, and differential cover at the York, PA All Breeds Jeep Show sponsored by the club I am a member of (PA Jeeps). Luckily, I still had left over money which I am saving for this summers build (Ford 8.8 rear, SYE, NV3550, and SBC 350).

Entry 9) SleddinJeeper

Specs:
Hi my JF name is SleddinJeeper

Ever since I got my learners permit I wanted a Wrangler. Unfortunantly I let my family talk me out of buying one, instead I bought a Land Cruiser. After having a Cruiser for a year it just want right for me. So I started looking around for a TJ or YJ. I drove past a used car dealership and saw a 95 Rio Grande lifted about 6in with 33s. I figured it was way out of my price range due to the lack of rust, but I still convinced my parents to come with me to look at it. Everyone seemed to like it, but the price was too steep. I owe it all to my dad getting the YJ for $1900 under asking price. Well there it was I finally had a Wrangler and I was as happy as could be. I drove it for a couple weeks as is, but I wanted to make it more my own. I started with a simple bumper, then my brother bought a tube bender, so I made a stinger for it. Then I got a little more expirience and built a rear stinger/tire carrier. Currently I'm awaiting some custom rocksliders that are being bent locally. My future plans are an 8.8, SYE, 4.88s and turbo, along with other tube work. I like to go offroading as often as possible, though there isnt a while lot around where I live. Heres a picture of her all cleaned up and one of my first real offroading trip.








Entry 10) skiandgolf

Specs:
In March I picked up a '95 hardtop with 49,000 original miles for $5000.
This was a steal for the Seattle area. Most are advertised for that price
with 150,000 or more miles. From the paperwork I was given, it looks like
this rig spent about 10 years in Fairbanks (has engine block and battery
heaters installed), but I'm guessing it was stored in a garage and only
driven on Summer days. Has a couple small scratches in the exterior paint,
but looks showroom new under the carpets and nearly everywhere else. So
far, I've only done a few things to it: Stereo head unit upgrade, rear tube
bumper with receiver hitch, wired trailer lighting, installed roof tracks to
mount a Yakima rack (pictured). It already had the aftermarket
wheels/tires. I plan on installing a lift and upgrading tires within the
next year, so the shackles would be a nice start to that project.

This is going to be a tough one.
I like the Sleddin Jeep, as well as the skiandgolf Jeep.
Gonna have to do a little more reading on them before I make my vote.
