Story: I bought this Jeep new off the showroom floor in 2001 as a daily driver for my wife. After 3 years of occasional hunting out of it, I went on my first real trail run and was hooked. It has taken 6+ years to bring my rig to its current state. I thank my loving wife and 2 daughters for putting up with the late hours and tons of money put into my big weekend toy. It is still undergoing changes, like being lowered an inch this week, new rear suspension re-design, etc. I still have more plans for it when money allows, like an auto tranny, Atlas, boat sides and back half, etc. This thing gets used more than a $2 hooker, and looks worse, but I love it. The Jeep……not the hooker.

Other mods: CJ tailgate, CIA routed through the cowl, Flowmaster 40, Bestop Safari/ Wraparound wind jammer/ duster, push button start, CB.

Story (optional): First Jeep was an 89 XJ, went through 2 motors and needed something more reliable for school. Bought this in June 2008 basically stock, been slowly modding ever since. I’ve wheeled her in MO, KS, OK, CO, and UT. The trip to Colorado and Moab was the highlight of my jeep life time and can’t wait to go back. My other passion is fabrication and when not in class I’m at work at a local fab shop. I love building and am lucky to have the time and tools to build as much as can. All armor, body work and paint was done in my garage by me. Soon I plan to add a custom fastback style cage and build a two-piece half cab hard top and 3 link the front and 4 link the rear. Front bumer with integrated suck down winch are in the planning stages as well. A lot of my ideas have come from JF and this site has saved me so much money (which is important for a college kid) and headaches over the two years I’ve owned her. Thanks so much for your consideration!

Story (optional): Bought this Jeep back in April of 07, deployed shortly thereafter and blew all my money on this thing! Then deployed again in 2009-2010 and spent more money on it. I think it is about where I want it to be, all I have left is to Chromo the D30 and truss it and put an E Locker in front and rear. I just got this thing all buttoned up about a week ago and thus the parkin lot poser pics.

Story:

I first bought this jeep back in 2008, a couple of months after I had totaled my previous TJ. I was able to salvage everything from the wreck except for the lift which bummed me out, because I had been so used to going offroad with more ground clearance. As the months went by I slowly started to become envious of modded jeeps that I passed by, and eventually convinced myself that I need to build a bigger and badder jeep than before. After countless hours of research, I finally started to order all the suspension and axle parts to make it drivable as soon as possible. At this point the welding skills needed to install my long arms were too great for me, so off to the shop it went. After I got her back I finished her up and took her out and so far she has handled like a dream.

Many more thing are still on the agenda to get done, and I hope to have the fenders and hood finished by spring. Thanks for looking

Story:
I’m a 20 year-old college student and this is my first jeep and actually my first vehicle that’s under my name. I purchased it back in the fall of 2008 and have been slowly building it ever since. I bust my tail running my own landscaping business so that I can afford my Jeep addiction. Mom and dad do not pay for anything and I don’t expect them to. I am quickly learning a lot about my jeep and since buying a welder have been getting into fabrication and custom building bumpers and things, so I like to think it’s progressing pretty quickly. Since this jeep is not my daily driver I have plans for it to be a dedicated trail rig with everything on it custom built or modified by myself. I've always been into wrenching so this jeep is perfect for me to learn and expand my skills. After I finish school I hope to one day open up my own automotive shop and hopefully be fabricating and working on Jeeps for a long time to come. Maybe doing work for a few of you guys someday.

You were allowed to enter. You were not chosen for the top 10.

That rule came from when we were deciding what kind of contest we wanted to run. Some wanted it to be tj only and not include lj's. It was decided that it didn't matter.
