VOTE for the July 2012 Cherokee Of The Month!!!

The time is here to vote your pick for the July 2012 Cherokee Of The Month.
We have a great selection of sweet XJ’s for your viewing pleasure; every one with something to catch your interest. Take your time to check them out and when you find the one that keeps bringing you back for yet another look, show your support and approval by casting your vote. After voting, please click the “Crawl This Thread” button just under the poll. I think we can keep this thread up all week in the top five crawled threads on the JF homepage.
Feel free to post up with positive comments or discussion and bump this thread as needed. This poll will close one week from today.

Here are your July COTM entries in the order received. Let’s get this started and see where it goes!

Optional: bought it for $2500 and now i dont want to imagine what ive spent on it. i always take it out in the snow before the plow trucks and to get to the mountain for first runs in the powder (an inch on the east coast is amazing) snowboading and try to take it wheeling when im free. I also use it for tailgating at country concerts and hauling my kayak around.

Suspension:IRO 4" coils, double shear track bar, short arms, bar pin eliminators, and leaf sprng shims; Rocky Road coil spacers, HD Offroad Engineering shackle relocation brackets, JKS boomerang shackles, Rough Country shocks.
Wheels/Tires: 31x10.50R15 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on stock steelies
Other Notable Modifications: Olympic winch bumper, Roxolid rear bumper, Tomken Machine transmission, transfer case, and gas tank skids; JCR Stage 2 rock sliders, Crown stainless brake hoses, cut n' fold rear corners, trimmed fender wells, IRO slip yoke eliminator and Tom Wood rear driveline.
Favorite Modification: The lift as a whole, in spite of it having come from a zillion different places.
Least Favorite Modification: All the oh-so-wonderful paint work I put into it; now undone.
Best Trail Damage: CB antenna nearly getting ripped off while wheeling it stock.
Build Thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/9...-wolf-1126101/

Optional: I intended to lift it 4.5" which is why I bought 31's instead of 33's. By the time I was finished with the rear, it was 7" taller! It still works well for me, especially considering the less than desirable 3.07:1 gear ratio. As can be seen by the pictures, I don't get to wheel it as often as I'd like to.

July 2012 COTM entries came from here: Enter Your Jeep in the July COTM contest
Look for the 'Enter Your Jeep in the August COTM' thread in the Cherokee Non-Technical forum section during the second week of August.
