Optional: From the beginning I wanted to build an XJ that could be driven to a trail or park, beat on hard, and then driven back home. I have put a pile of time and money wrenching and fabbing up stuff to get it where it is, and I can say I am almost happy with it. It has treated me well and I can say I have beat the snot out of it and it never misses a beat!
My thanks to everyone who participated in this month's contest. Join in next month for the July COTM contest.
