OCTOBER TJ of the MONTH CONTEST!!! jeffro06 IS the WINNER!!!

Congrats man...someone correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure you are the first person ever to win TJoTM with less than 35" tires.

Here's the winner:


Name: Jeff Leininger

Username: jeffro06

Mods (optional):

265/75R16 Goodyear MTR/K's
OME 2" HD lift with OME shocks and steering stabilizer
Rokmen Mercenary Front Bumper
LoD Rear Bumper
Rokmen Sliders
Rokmen Corner Armor
Skidrow Engine Skid
Skidrow Radiator Skid
Skidrow Steering Box Skid
Metal Cloak Over Line Fenders w/4" flare
Xenon rear 4" flat flares
Superwinch EPi 9.0 winch, with synthetic line
Currie Antirock Swaybar
Rokmen Adjustable Control Arms (full set)
Rokmen 1" Billet Spacers up front
Cobra 75 WX ST 40 Channel CB
Currie Johnny Joint Front Adjustable Track Bar
Currie Currectlyn Tie Rod and Drag Link
Rampage Bowless Soft Top
Custom rear Storage Box with fire Extinguisher and Hi-Lift
Blue Monkey Speedo Healer
Viair 450P air compressor
Rubicon Locker Mod (Lockers work in 4HI)

Story (optional):

I previously owned a 95 YJ, which needed a rear axle swap, and front gear change, but when I came across this Rubicon I decided it was time for a change. I took the money I made from the YJ and put it to use by modding my Rubicon. I wrote out a build plan and I have been sticking pretty close to it. I've done stage 1 and stage 2, now I'm waiting for stage 3, which would be bigger tires, new wheels, gears and a tummy tuck. I'm pretty happy with the Rubi as it is right now, so stage 3 is a few years away. I've drove the Rubi to Moab and back in 2011 and plan to do so again in 2013. I wheel the jeep as often as I can, but not as much as I'd like.

Which is exactly why I voted for him in the vote-off.

Congrats!
