(jeeperjk) WIN'S The April, JK of the Month Contest!

It's Time To Vote
for the

April, JK of the Month!




fourplyn

Well this thing started its journey a little over 2 years ago. I bought it used off a dealer for $22,500. and they had just replaced the brain it under warranty. I drove it to Seattle where I had just moved. Worked there for a year. During this, I bought Husky Liners for the front and cargo area. Being from Alaska originally I new how much mud/water/dirt I would end up with in those area's. I installed a 2.5" Tera Flex BB lift on it off craigslist for $120. Got some 1.5" wheel spacers and called it good. I also installed the same lift on a friends 2 dr JK and he swapped me his Rubicon tires for my highway tires... Then I moved back to Denver and got a ton of work from my business. So I started researching and decided on the lift I have now. I scored deals left and right on the different suspension parts. Like the Elka shocks, I got for $700 for 4. Sold the rears and bought the springs for the front. I'm still working on this build. I have a lot of plans..And have been taking my time to get the needed things. I'm in no rush. I want it tough as hell before I seek out any trail's. Its been one year sense this last transformation. Hopefully in the next month I'll get the suspension done and the exterior done as well.

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. At 12,000 miles I could not stand the dinky 29" tires and crappy wheels any more, so I installed my RC Budget Boost and 35" KM2's.

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

Future plans include Poison Spyder BFH bumpers and T&T skid plates.

Mods (optional):

---Engine/Driveline---
- Nada

---Suspension/Tires---
-RC 2.5" BB w/shock extensions
-315/75/16 BFG KM2's
-ProComp 7089 16x10

---Armor/Protection---
-Stock Skid's

---Interior/Communications---
-Mastercraft Grab Handles
-No Carpet
-Cobra Chrome CB

---Exterior---
KC Slimlights on KC windshield mounts

---Recovery Gear---
-Recovery straps
-Tools

My jeep came about as a desire to finally own one. Joining the Navy provided
me with the income to get my Jeep. I immediately got the upgrade bug. Every
couple months I have bought something new for my Jeep. (I gotta compete with
the Jeeps on base!) I immediately removed the carpet when I bought it. I
suck at telling my story... I love my Jeep, I enjoy driving it every day.
That is all the justification I need to enter the contest! Hahaha! Future
mods will include Powerplant winch, OME lift, and skid plates within the
year. I gotta do a deployment first!

Just a poor college kid. Whatever’s left over after books and tuition I put into the Jeep. Being that I can’t afford a second car, this is not only my daily driver but I also wheel it hard on the weekends. If you look closely you can see rock rash on all the wheels as well as some intense pin striping on the doors. It is a jeep after all. More mods to come.








jeeperjk

TeraFlex 3" lift, Raceline RT233 beadlocks, GY MT/R Kevlar 35x12.5-17's, AEV snorkel, LoD stubby w/ stinger & Superwinch LP8500, Smittybilt XRC rear bumper, Dynatrac Pro Rock Extreme 44 w/ 3"x0.5" tubes & RCV axles, 5.13 gears
Ordered my Jeep at just the right time and got it for <$25k after TT&L! Got started fairly quickly with the mods and got the first phase done after about 1850 miles. I wheeled it on stock 4.10's and 35's for about 7k miles and then ponied up the $ for the PR44 w/ RCVs and 5.13's. I have zero regrets. This thing is beefy. Next phase is gonna be Poison Spyder flares, 38's, and Redneck Ram hydro assist. That'll have to wait until I return from Iraq in August.








Good Luck To All

How can their be 5 votes and the page says there's only 2 views?

Anyway, good luck to all. There's definitely some stiff competition on this one.

voted for jeeperjk, with fourplyn in the competition it's just not fair. Don't get me wrong that rig (fourplyn) is awesome and I would probably give up a very valued body part (the left one) to own it, it's just way out of everyone else's league. Sorry!

Not to say that fourplyn's rig shouldn't be here, but whatever'll get me votes... I'm down.

Fourplyn, what doors are those?

Heck, I didn't notice that, but the bag on the back of my JK in that top pic should be worth 5 votes by itself!

Not sure, but I wish he'd tell us. I asked earlier, but it go buried in the other comments.

Thanks much, guys. To even be put in the same league with that rig is an honor. This'll be a hard fought battle. I just hope I don't have to outwheel him if there's a tie-breaker!

Nice rig, fourplyn.

You'll never know how anxious I am to hit Rausch. I haven't been up there since August! Didn't deploy until February, but every spare weekend I had between Oct and January was spent on my basement. We added a 275 sq ft bedroom (for my 9 year old), a small computer room/den, a laundry room, a bathroom... complete with urinal and tiled shower, and a 450 sq ft family room with a ceiling mount for my 65" TV.

When I get back, I'm gonna have a pile of Jeep parts (Ace sliders, Poison Spyder flares, probably a Redneck Ram, and either 38's or 40's. If I go 40's, then I'll have some taller springs, too. I'm gonna be busy, busy, busy. Plus, I'll probably go on some short trips with the wifey and kids.

I'll do well to get to Rausch by Sept, but it'll probably be Oct. Maybe just in time for Crawl for the Cure. We'll see.

Can't wait to see the next upgrades, hopefully we'll see you this fall. Your son evidently made an impression on my oldest from when they were climbing around the rocks last summer, he was asking if you guys were going to be there when we were heading up this past weekend.
