Story:
After 4 years it is still the "little Jeep that could". It is still only has a Budget Boost and after 60+k miles on it's 33's they are more like 31's, the oil pan is dented, the skids, cross-member and any thing else that hangs low are dented and twisted and have taken numerous hits from the rocks it likes to play on, but it still heads to the off-road park fairly often and regulary wheels with rigs that have more lift and larger tires. Then it returns home and performs it duty as a daily driver without much complaint. It will get a new set of 33's later this summer and by the time they wear out hopefully I will be able to retire it from daily driver status and give it a makeover to more of a dedicated trail rig.

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. 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.

MY BIRTHDAY IS IN JUNE!!

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







Good luck guys!
This is going to be a close race

Definition of insanity, right?

I used to be way more involved, but then we got busy at work and bought a house. So if I'm not busy with work work, I'm busy with house work.

I hear you man...was away for awhile myself after we bought our first place.

Expecting a different outcome is no longer the definition of insanity for most of us...my better half would tell you the definition is tearing apart and rebuilding a perfectly good vehicle ha ha

Hey, just wondering. Why is this vote ending on the 30th? Why not run it until the end of the month?
