Congratulations to Ken and his 1999 WJ in a hard fought, come from behind victory. His rig features a 6.5 High Clearance Long Arm lift kit from Ironrockoffroad.com, front and rear locked and trussed Dana 44s, and much, much more.

Suspension: 6.5" IRO High Clearance Long Arms, JKS Upper Conversions, QDs, DT8000 Long Travel Shocks, Rear Addco

Awesome! Thank's all, I appreciate all the votes and also to for -ZJones- for setting all this up in the first place. Building this thing has been a long process with a lot of help from Iron Rock Offroad. If it weren't for them, I'm sure I wouldn't have half the rig I do.

Best of luck to next month's nominations, I'm looking forward to seeing who we get to choose from.

Thanks again!!!
