Zte87 is the 2013 YJ of the year

Congrats Zac, you took it this year! You are the recipient of a prize from metalcloak and a lifetime membership. I'm still baffled how a 4 banger won though.

Here's a recap, let's see more pics and video

1993 Jeep YJ
-2.5L with brown dog motor mounts, and custom magnaflow exhaust, 4.0 tb & 19 lbs injectors
-NP231 w/teraflex sye, 2low

-37” x 14.50 toyo mt's
-bds 5 inch springs
-5/8 boom shacke front, 1.25 in the rear
-1inch daystar bl
-teraflex rear shock bar
-Front HP D30 w/ 4.88’s & spartan locker, and chromoly axle shafts
-Rear Ford 8.8 w/4.88's with c clip eliminators and chromoly shafts, and yukon full spool

-front corbeau baja rs seat, and metal smittybuilt center console
-full cb setup, first aid kit, fire extinguisher
-and a rocking sound system
-2.5 for life
So I am not big on story telling……… but I would like to say in the little over two years I have owned my yj it has very much became a big part of my family's and my life (and a way my xj,zj never did) with out you guys and the forum my jeep would have never gotten to the point in which it is today, my jeep has another growth spurt planned in march 2014 and I can't wait. I will be adding a front g2 dana 44 (loaded with 5.13s, arb, cromo shafts) matching gears and locker for the 8.8, front 4 point harness, rear genright stinger/tire carrier, and a belly up this is a addicting money sucking hobby but I would have it any other way
/f12 ftw

Luck Favours The Prepared
