My first car was a brown 1971 Jeep CJ with 33s and a Buick 225 odd-fire V-6 lots of power and with the short wheelbase it would pull the front wheels off the ground. It was a death trap but you dont know that at 16. I have owned a CJ-7 Laredo and two Cherokees since. The wrangler is my 5th jeep. Bought it new in 2005 got a great deal on it as apparently it would not sell because of the color. Its been a constant project ever since. My goal has always been to push it as far to the hardcore side as I could, while keeping it street legal and relatively comfortable. I first put it on 35s, then up to 37s, and then to the 40s on the pro-rock axles. The high lines help keep it fairly low. The supercharger really wakes up the engine and makes it a blast to drive even with the 40s. My favorite place to wheel was Tellico but enough said about that. I beat it up pretty good on the trail (mainly into rocks) but I do take a lot of ribbing because it is pretty.

Thanks for all the votes, folks! Given the competition - especially BSaint and Indyrubi - I'm surprised to have won, but it makes it just that much sweeter. I'll need to step up my game for TJoTY - maybe 42's like BSaint and coilovers through my hood liker Indyrubi!
