Thanks everyone! This last year proved that I am officially addicted to Jeeping. I have had my Camaro since I was 17, and thought that I had poured a ton of hours into it over the years. However, I think that the WJ has taken over as I have ignored my Camaro for the last two years as I have spent all my wrenching time on the WJ. Just when you think you're done, the project list grows once again. We'll see what 2012 will bring for the WJ.

I've been away from computers and the net for a while, for the holidays, and just don't feel much like JF these days. However, I have to hop on to congratulate you. You've got one of my favorite Jeeps. Great job building it up, and congrats on the win. It's well deserved. I love the look of your white WJ.
Yes, it snows in Texas.
