As our August COTM 1990JEEPXJ will receive a complimentary one year premium JeepForum membership in recognition and all due bragging rights.
This is yet another XJ we've seen featured in this contest in the past. I'm starting to sense a trend that it takes a few trial runs for the JF voting membership to get familiar enough with driver and rig to push a win their way. Props for sticking with it and nice work with this great XJ!

But I still wouldn't trade it for a Coupe DeVille."
Congrats 1990JEEPXJ. Well deserved win, Ive been a member on here for a good while now and I remember looking in on your build when it was a mostly stock, super clean rig and you really wheeled the piss out of it just like that. Since then, about 6 months ago I read the build again start to finish. Its great to see a rig slowly transform to what you want from it a piece at a time. Fantastic work!
