Congratulations "11RUBICON" Win's JK of the Month, January 2011

It's time to get the wheels rollin'
for the

JANUARY JK of the MONTH
GOOD LUCK TO ALL







WVUJeeper

Story: While I was in College they came out with the JK Unlimited....I was hooked. After I graduated it took about 3 weeks for me to get a job, move from West Virginia to Wyoming, receive my first paycheck, then drive 8 hrs to Salt Lake City to pick up my base model Rescue Green JK Unlimited. I had hardly gotten out of the lot on the test drive when I told the Salesman that I was going to buy it.

That was 3 years ago. Now I live in Colorado and wheel the heck out of it whenever I get a chance.

---Suspension/Tires---
-RC 2.5" BB w/shock extensions

THE STORY:

I HAD A TOYOTA BASED BUGGIE FOR THE LAST 7 YEARS, IT WAS TIME FOR A NEW CHAPTER IN LIFE.
MY WIFE AND I TRADED IN THE TOW RIG (05 SUPERDUTY 6.0), SOLD THE TRAILER AND BOUGHT THIS
LOADED RUBICON UNLIMITED.
I PARTED OUT THE TOYOTA SOLD WHAT I COULD AND GAVE THE REST AWAY TO MAKE ROOM IN THE GARAGE.
WE USED THE MONEY THAT I MADE ON THE TOYOTA TO FUND THIS BUILD. IT HAS BEEN REALLY FUN AND STRESSFULL
BUT AS YOU CAN SEE I THINK IT TURNED OUT OK FOR WHAT I HAD TO WORK WITH.
EVERYTHING YOU SEE HERE I DID MY SELF IN MY 2 CAR GARAGE OVER A 4 DAY PERIOD.
SINCE I HAVE FINISHED THIS STAGE OF THE BUILD I HAVE NOTICED A FEW FLAWS IN THE BUILD, I FIRST STARTED
WITH 4.88 GEARS.... BAD IDEA! MPG WENT SOUTH REALLY BAD AND DRIVABILITY WAS HORRIBLE. I SINCE REGEARED
IT AGIAN WITH 5.38'S AND WE ARE MUCH HAPPIER WITH THE DRIVABILITY AND MPG.
I AM STILL FINE TUNING EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT WORK THE WAY I WANT IT TO.

THERE IS MORE TO COME BUT WILL HAVE TO WAIT FOR NOW......

WVUJeeper ftw. Surprisingly I like the look of the JK without the canoe flares strapped on the side.

I like the simplicity of the green Jeep, I like the rack and look of the white one too, but in the end, black wins for me. Im somewhat partial to black I guess.

This is pretty much how I feel, although the black wins for the time the installs were done

How is it that this thread has 600+ views and only 15 votes? I know the same 15 people haven't looked here 40 times.

Vince gets my vote.

I know! Only three!
Hopefully this will show people that they can't win if they don't enter
The good news is that a 4 door winner is guaranteed this month
All of last years winners were 2 doors!

Very admirable to vote for someone other than yourself. You should get votes just for this! Besides, of the three, yours is definately the best set up for wheelin'!

I think there would be many more entries if some prizes or swag were offerred. Certainly some of the sponsors could step up? In fact, I think this should start this month and include prizes for 1st, 2nd. and 3rd places!
