I dont really think mine is ready for this at all, still have a long way to go for my build. But since no one seems to be posting and I dont want March to go without a COTM, Ill be the first and hopefully the others will post up.

Build Thread: Click Click
And how it all started:
Like I said, Im not really at the level I wanted to be to enter, but I mainly feel like putting it in just because of how far its come. It was owned by a moronic high school kid and was doomed to be hauled off as scrap in time. Ive been nurturing it into the shape of a good daily/weekend warrior, but still soooo much to do.
Now, lets get some other people in here posting up.

*** I have now owned my Jeep for 11 months, and after buying it bone stock, I feel like it has come a long way and has really proven itself already! I may only be on 29's and open diffs, but this XJ has been A LOT of places. I take pride in creating clean and tasteful looks to it, and making it very functional. It still has a ways to go, and I have a lot of future plans, but for only owning it for 11 months, I am proud of how far it's come. ***

Bought it in 09 with 200K on the motor. Took good care of it. Did all the interior/electrical mods first (LED lighting, cup holder, gauges, audio system, CB, etc..). Then i lifted it 2" so i could fit my 31s, once i could afford it i went to 4". In the process of installing an SYE. Picked up welding as a hobby and made my own sliders, reinforced a stock TC crossmember, roof rails, and a rear bumper/swing out.
