Hey, I'm Remo and this is my 2010 JK Sport. I purchased this in May 2010 with the intent to have some fun and explore.

I only have minor thing done it now, just waiting for the day when it's paid off to do some serious mods.

I got this Jeep 2 years ago... I have wanted a Jeep ever since my mom's best friend pulled up in his CJ7 when I was 8... He recently died unexpectedly and I began modifying anf upgrading the Jeep to do the same things that he told me stories about... This Jeep is a tribute to him. Thank you Mark Holland for the inspiration!

My story is a bit off the wall on why I chose this particular car. My 3 year old son has Autism and his favorite thing in the world is an iPad, his iPad is named Bob, and so he doesn't damage Bob as he is running around all day, we got Bob big rubber foam case, which happens to be a flourescent Green - which also just happens to the same color as Gecko Green! My wife was against me getting the Jeep, so I made her come with me to the lot, where amongst the never-ending sea of black, silver and white Jeeps...there was 1 Gecko Green unlimited. I told her to look in that direction..."There it is...it's Bob's Car". From there she was sold. Not exactly the story of wanting to get a Jeep to climb over rocks, but it puts a smile on my son's face who goes through so much every day that it was worth it. On a side note, since then, Bob's car has needed black wheels, big tires, and a bunch of other stuff. That was not as easily sold on my wife - she will just have to get over it, Bob is selfish at times.









Better late than never!
Another great pile of JK's
