That's pretty cool that you won. You've come further than I in much less time. I admire you. And you wheel the heck out of that thing. A purple Jeep, who'd of thunk it? I've seen purple XJ's from the factory but never a ZJ.
Yes, it snows in Texas.

thanks yal! i never woulda thought i'd win this when i first started out. to be honest i never thought my jeep would be this modded. i've def gotten some good deals on the parts i have on this thing otherwise it def wouldnt be lifted as much or as capable as it is. i gotta say this has def made my day winning this.

thanks man i have def put this thing through the paces(maybe thats why i've broken so much ha) as for it being purple, when i was first looking at jeeps i found a chargold 97 v8 limited that got sold out from under me but i also had this zj in mind, went and looked at it, drove it, loved it, it may be purple but i love it. its a unique color and i wouldnt have it any other way
