2010 Grand Cherokee of the Year - bigbluezj94

The Grand Cherokee of the Year for 2010 is awarded to Troy Edwards aka bigbluezj94 to honor his short yet memorable life. Troy was a well respected member of JeepForum with one of the coolest ZJ's any of us have ever seen. His upbeat attitude was contagious and he had most of us laughing on a regular basis. Troy, you have been a great influence to the JeeForum community and you will be missed but never forgotten.

He's the only guy I've ever known who had a Mopar tattoo. That has to say something. Good wheelin' in heaven, Troy. I'd love to see your build up there. Just imagine the junkyards in the sky to pull parts from! lol

Congrats on the win and keep on wheelin'.
