Moderator Ratmonkey passed away.

A fellow jeeper and a huge part of Jeep forum, Tyler, Ratmonkey passed away from a car crash the other night at the age of 32. He was a wealth of knowledge and respected. There is a thread on the zj page for condolences, and possibly some decals or shirts. I think there will also be a donations page. He had helped and commented on here as well. He will be missed. RIP, prayers to his family.

Rest in piece Ratmonkey. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, way to young to die.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

I also read in his build thread they are keeping it open for people to post there as well and for his very good friend to keep his build going....which I thought was a nice idea.

Thanks for posting livingtheJEEPlife , i heard through your post in what did you do to your wj thread....I did not know him but have read many of his posts and he was very helpful and knowledgeable and I'm sure will be missed by all.

Horrible news. Prayers and thoughts to Rat's family and friends. The jeep community has lost a valuable member.
