As our October COTM DezertTJ will receive a complimentary one year premium JeepForum membership in recognition and all due bragging rights.
DesertTJ has been another frequent participant in COTM contests and keeps up with at least a couple of jeeps. His rig is now the 10th of 11 that will be featured in the COTY contest come December. Congratulations on the well-earned win here and Happy Birthday as well. We'll see you again real soon!

It has been so much fun to wheel that I always contemplate building it bigger with stronger axles. It goes everywhere I take it and with 200k+ miles on it, it has been the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. I'm proud to have this and would never want to get rid of it!
Thanks to everyone who participated this month by entry or vote.
Join in next month for the Novemberfest COTM contest.
