Story:
This Jeep has been in my family since it rolled off the lot with less than 100 miles. I remember going with my family to the dealership just to "look" at one since my dad had always wanted a Jeep and his Bronco was totaled. We ended up driving off of the lot with it that Easter weekend of '98. All of the neighbor kids thought it was so cool when the top was down and my mom would take us for a ride. Once I was a little bit older my mom would let me take it "off-road" (just dirt pastures), it was great. Then my sister turned 16 and drove it for a while until it finally became mine once I turned 17. I wheeled it stock when I could since I didn't have a job to pay for upgrades. Now that I have a part time job I do what I can. I never plan on selling it, luckily my girlfriend understands. I can't wait for a steady source of income so that I can make some serious changes to a rig I can call my own.

Story:
I got this Jeep when I was 17 and I have been building it as my time and wallet have allowed ever since. College has slowed down progress quite a bit but I just finished my Master's program so hopefully I will soon have the time and money to continue working on my baby. Running the TJoTM contest has opened my eyes to a lot of quality builds and I have tried to incorporate what I like in others' work into my own Jeep. I know it is not the biggest or baddest in the world but it gets me through everything I need it to and it still manages to be a decent daily driver. Thank you for your consideration!

Thanks for looking.

Story:
Bought the Jeep as a great start to a capable wheeling rig after quickly reaching the beyond the capabilities of my Commander. In the past year and a half I have torn everything off and rebuilt it to be a weekend rock crawler, but still fun to take my family around in on the weekend/drive to work in nice weather. It has been an awesome experience so far, and a great way to spend time with my son and wife.

Voted for Eugene based on the amount of effort put into his submission.

Cbowmanns was the most visually appealing, but he put no effort into his submission...
