I would've voted for Brian's ZJ, but seeing as he sold it, I have to give it to Squash. He's done a heck of a lot to his Jeep and keeps true to the ZJ way. Very zen like, Squash-master. Brian, Louis was my inspiration from when I joined JF. You gave me a lot of good advice and helped me along the way. I thank you. Squash, your Jeep rocks because you're not afraid to really wheel it. Something I never had, complete wheeling freedom. I worried too much. You've also been a good source of advice and information. For two guys so young you've both done more than I ever could dream. So kudos.

im going with AKRO. i have been on his build thread since the first page, and if i had the money ive already decided i would model my WJ off of his. and our Jeeps were the exact same when they came out of the factory

My Jeep uses the gas your hybrid saves.
Anything your car can do, our Jeeps can do better.
