Story:

I've owned this Jeep for the last 5 1/2 years. Like a lot of others I bought it knowing very little about TJ's. Over the years this is what it has become. I continue to evolve my installation and fabrication skills along with my wheeling abilities and this little Jeep just keeps putting up with anything I can throw at it. I wheel this Jeep on regular basis in Sierra's and although it was born a runt, and retains it's original 4cyl. and D30,D35 axles it's proven to be a very capable and reliable family wheeler. Thanks for your consideration!

Ha, irony. Really surprised a D35, 4cyl, with some RC parts, some Smitty parts and some other crap pulled off the win. I hope it's because it's recognized as a home garage built type of Jeep, that's just progressing right along as it's owner's fab, install and wheeling abilities evolve, and one that actually get's used pretty hard for what it is. And NOT just for my blingy doors.

I voted Beasley also, not only does his Jeep represent what 99% of us should strive for, but I also qualified the person behind the Jeep. And Beasley proves time and time again to be a knowledgable, level headed, and consistent JF member. I still don't know how he keeps up with so many build threads!

Oh and I might change my tag line now. I guess it can't be the WORST.
