Rocky Clymer Win's the February JK of the Month! Contest!


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.

-315/75/16 BFG KM2's
-ProComp 7089 16x10

-Cobra Chrome CB

KC Slimlights on KC windshield mounts

I am a believer that Jeeps are built not bought - while that is an old school thought (which betrays my age)
I did buy my basic JK as a starting point. I think like Harley Davidsons, a Jeep
can then be modified to what the user wants, needs and likes best. After picking up the JK in Nov 2007
I kept the Jeep stock for the first year of wheeling to decide what I wanted and needed to run the trails I like
to be on. I am a member of the El Jebel Shrine Jeep Patrol and Red Rocks 4-Wheelers in Moab, Utah. Most of
my off-road trails are in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico or Arizona, with Moab Utah being my favorites. I volunteer
each year with the RR4W at Easter Jeep Safari and you can probably catch up with me in the registration booth
or on a trail.

Had an '89 YJ that I was planning on building up but then my wife and I had our 2nd child and decided the YJ was just a little to small, luckily the JKs had just come out and the 2 doors had just enough extra space to make it practicle for us. I would have liked a Rubicon but it was just out of our price range so I bought an 2 door X with the freedom top, but I did spring for the "Rubi-Lite" package: 4:10 gearing, 32 spline Rear Dana 44 w/electric locker, electic swaybar disconnect. To make the 2 door a little more family friendly my first mod was to add the safari rack, not easy to start drilling holes into a 2 week old Jeep. The last mod I did was add some front springs off a 4 door Rubicon to get my lift back, after a couple of year with the extra weight of the bumper and winch my stock springs were really sagging, I just ordered some longer travel front shocks and Riddler Diff Covers. The Jeep is my dailly driver but the boys and I regularly take it up to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park to play on the rocks.

3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, Front andf rear JKS adjustable trac bars, Teraflex 4" rear upper bump stops, Poison Spyder evap skid, 37" Goodyear MTRs

(5) 35x12.50 Nitto Trail Grappler M/T

I have always loved Jeeps and finally decided to pull the trigger. I am of course a little Red Neck at heart so I had to do some mods. Just picked up my baby a couple weeks ago from the shop and I am thrilled with how it came out. Started out as a stock Silver Unlimited Sport. I hope you like. Thanks for considering me.

Rocky got mine...while AR's is a sweet looking rig, a good story and gradual build goes a long way in my book.

You might consider posting up your story, AR

Edit: not to discount the others...they're all great rigs (and happy to see some 4-doors in the mix)!
