I recently changed this jeep from a mild wheeler on 35's to what it is now. see the build thread Jeep Envy. As the jeep speaks for it self, I will simply tell you where the name came from. Riding around town with my wife I used to look at every jeep, pick out something I liked and tell her I had jeep envy. The jeep envy within built and built within me until one day I started making a list of what I really wanted in a wheeler. At the top of that list I wrote Jeep Envy. So I started buying up axles and tires as I found deals. I bought all of the suspension components and most the brackets off a member here and he was very good at helping me put this all together, this is his brain child and my motivation. I owe the little bit I know about jeeps and wheeling to the collective members of JeepForum, Thank you.

Alrighty ladies and gents, here it is, the last contest of the year. The prize? Pride. I considered going all out on this one but reason got the best of me and prizes are overrated. Besides, what more could these rigs improve? Thats right, nothing.

Merry Christmas to all!

You would need to be a contest winner of the month from this fiscal year. We didn't have 12 contests, so that's why the reduced number of YJOTY contestance.

Enter in an upcoming YJOTM in 2012, get selected as one of the 10 to be voted for that month (reenter if you are not one of the ten) win that month, and you're automatically a contestant in the YJOTY.

Thanks to Antacid Man and Joe for all the hard work.

To all the JF members for there support. It is a privilege to be amongst a great group of folks who frequent this site.

There is truly some very nice rigs out there. Without the help of JF they would be a fraction of what they are.

You can re enter the next month even if you are one of the ten, just not the winner of the month. Basically, it doesn't hurt to keep entering until you win.

Quite welcome! I think I set the end of the poll for like ten days out so along with the TJ voters we've had I'm hoping to see some Cherokee, CJ and even full size jeepers' votes as well. Unfortunately, I didn't leave the poll open to view voters but hopefully everyone will post up after they've voted. Show some pride! Perhaps I will make a quick run to 4WheelParts and pick up a gift certificate for the winner. And runners up.

Good luck to everyone and have a merry Christmas!
