It's Time

The January
JK of the Month Contest

cgar_16

Mods: 3.5" BDS Suspension Lift, 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers on 18" KMC Black Monsters. Airaid Cool Air Dam Intake System. I have cut the stock fenders and liners. All the white underneath was covered with spray on bedliner.
Story: This 08 Wrangler was a present to myself after returning home from Iraq. I've been able to take her through the snow in NM, the sand dunes in El Paso and beautiful Texas coasts and up to Kansas Rock Park. The Rock park was awesome because I have never taken my jeep to this extreme. I'm new to the jeepin community but I can't wait to do more upgrades. The next thing on my agenda is going to be gears.

STORY

My 1990 YJ was the gateway to my addiction to everything that is Jeep, and the introduction to this wonderful forum that has afforded me the courage to learn to tool on my own vehicle, as well as the opportunity to learn, and meet some great folks in the process. I began my build at my dealership, where I am a sales manager and have access to our service department, and a few of the techs tools. After building past the basic suspension/bumpers phase, I started playing on different trail rides with the guys at Trail Quest. Growing my confidence as a driver, and breaking parts one by one, I moved my build over to Trail Quest Inc, a Jeep specific shop in Central Ohio. Two of my good friends run this shop, and put up with my shenanigans - They live and breathe everything CJ, YJ, TJ, but only had limited experience with the JK before I started showing up, using their tools, and making them conform to the words of the ever-powerful internet Stefan and John have helped me to learn a great deal more as far as tooling goes, and my build continues in the way of their daily business. My wife jokes (I think) that I should pay rent out there, and visit home every now and then for fun Thanks for your participation in my build and helping to keep this great website alive!

Why does this have to be so difficult? Other than deciding what to eat for lunch today, THIS is the hardest decision of my day!
