I did, but the driveshaft has a flange instead. But you could do the yoke with no problems

Nice jeeps all around.

All of these rigs are very nice and quite capable in their own right. I would be proud to be able to ride along or wheel with any of them. But because this is a contest we have to narrow down our choice for a prospective winner.

Spokes '00 Sport is a well built and well wheeled rig. Lots of nice off road upgrades and a driver who isn't afraid to wheel it. I love a Red XJ and that alone almost got my vote.

1990XJ is a great rig. Locked front and rear. Real rock eating rockers. Additional rock and chassis protection from Ruff Stuff, Riddler, C-Roc, etc. And this guy is not afraid to wheel his rig right to the limit.

JeepN4KC '00 Sport is a great looking rig. If looks were the only criteria this would be my choice hands down. But this XJ is way more than just looks. Lots of rock protection and the body clearance for lots of wheel travel. Great looking tires and wheels that offer style and function. Add to that an owner who likes to hit the rocky trails and you have a solid candidate for COTM.

So after all of that my choice for the August COTM is JeepN4KC. Thanks to all of the entrants this month. You should all be very proud of your XJ's.

Not even an honorable mention.. That cuts deep brah..

Haha. You have a very nice XJ too. Add to that the Kayak and the two Bicycles and it just proves you know how to have a great time both on and off the trail.

That's about as thorough as it gets - and thanks for the support!

I don't regularly drive mine so the SYE/HnT is something I've put on the backburner. I have looked at the IRO HnT because combined w/ a salvaged front shaft the job can be done for around $130.
