Before the Wrangler I had a 2005 Jeep Liberty diesel. The trans went out and My wife and I decided to trade it in on a new wrangler. We decided on the Rubicon. It quickly went from being my wife's daily driver/ commuter to my off road rig. I took it off road completely stock and decided I was going to get a budget boost and call it good. After some research that turned into the Rock Krawler lift. Every time I take the Jeep out I figure out something else to put on it. My wife has been getting a little tired of all the money going into the Jeep so every mod I do has been researched and done to get the Job done in the best and most affordable way. I've done that by making my own CB mounts and such, cutting my stock fenders, and picking up the burnt up XRC8 and spending $50 to rewire it and get it working again. The Jeep is one of my favorite vehicles and I can't wait to see what it looks like in a year or more!

After I traded my last JK in to get the wife into a Grand Cherokee after her accident I thought I would be driving her old grand cherokee forever! It was hit bad! 18k invested after they found many internal problems after body was finished. An opportunity came up for me to get into a JK Sahara due to a couple of bad "new car" sales months. That started it all!!! Did 95% of it myself but could not get the clearcoat right on the top so I shipped it out. Oh and it was too cold to paint the fenders in my garage so they were done in my buddies paint shop! Modded the interior and sound system to make the top install more complete.

I had traded my 2007 JKU in February of 2011 because of the rising fuel costs. In August of 2011 I had a heart attack at the age of 43 and decided after that life was too short to worry about fuel prices. I also realized that I was a heart beat (or lack there of) away from someone else driving my stuff so I bought my 2011 in September 2011 and I have been happy and content every since!








Great looking Jeeps
Good Luck To Everyone!

Great turn out, this is a really tough one. We've got SirWinston; who I want to vote for out of his sheer determination, Doc; who has built and excellent rig and done things in nice order...oh yeah, and rolling big dog 40's now , dvdsjk; what can you say? The Avenger top half build is pretty awesome, lots of DIY and wrench time on his part , and spedly; what a kick ***, purpose built rig. Dedicated trail rig, awesome custom cage, and can-do safety first attitude wearing a helmet.

II'm going to have to hold off on voting for a bit and think about this one...crawled and subscribed.

It is my daily driver too. The helmet is just for the comp. It has a headset in it so I could talk to my spotter without yelling.

It was tough to decide between DrHolliday, dvdsjk and Spedly, but I really like DrHollidays jeep and Spedly's is just bad***, but in the end I had to give to dvsjk, because of the all the work hes put into it and I really like the look of the top and the grill.
