Story (optional):
My first vehicle was a 95 ZJ 5.2L and ever since then i've been
hooked. Bought a beat down 2.5L YJ after my first deployment and put
in plenty of time, sweat and money before I went to Iraq again and
sold it right after I purchased this 01 TJ. While over seas I created
a build plan to get me on 37's but a month after I got home I totaled
it and decided to just go all out and rebuild it the way I REALLY
wanted it. After about 10 months of buying parts, building, buying
more parts and building more It was finally back on the road. It has
been finished for about a month now and has been going strong! I would
like to thank JeepForum.com as well as my wonderful Fiance for all the
support and time that went into this build. Thank you for considering
my TJ for TJOTM!
