Congratulations to our winner of the YJOTM contest: Tomesd

Congrats go to tomesd for an outstanding rig. Below is a detailed description of his rig and some extra pics. Thank you all that participated. I look forward to doing this again next month.

Thanks for the honor! I had always wanted a Jeep when I was in my teens so when I was able I ordered a '95 from the factory back in '94. It was a SE sport model with factory air, black, with upgraded wheels/tires, limited slip, etc. It was my daily driver through 2005 and while it had been taken good care of it had seen some wear and tear. It had never been offroad! I had it in the garage only driving it occasionally and realized how much I missed driving it so decided to go through it this year and fix it up.
After tons of research here I installed a RE 4.5" XD lift with Cragar soft 8's and BFG KM2's with TW's front and rear drive shafts/super short SYE and wire brushed the surface rust off the frame and repainted/undercoated it. I then Herculined the tub after finding surface rust under the carpet on the drivers side. I ordered JCR Offroad front and rear bumpers, Shrockworks sliders, and a Rock Hard 4x4 rear roll crossbar and had the paint shop powder coat/install them when they painted it. I decided to go with new Jeep "Bright Silver", which turned out great! I put a Banks cat back on it with a Magnaflow high flow cat and a K&N CAI as well.
The interior was completely redone with new carpet, Wet Okole seat covers, a Tuffy console and rear storage trunk, a new Sony in dash with Infinity speakers/amp.
I plan on upgrading the axles soon as well. I have had so much fun going thrugh this thing and I'm glad everyone likes what I have done with it. Thanks for all the compliments! I'll post some wheeling pics soon.

















Thanks Rusty!
