silv3r is the Winner! The September 2011 JK of the Month Contest!

Summer's Over
and
Class is in Session!

The September 2011
JK of the Month Contest
Starts Now!



Gills

∑ Rubicon BFG Mud Terrains on 17Ē Moab wheels
∑ Rugged Ridge front bumper light bar
∑ IPF 968 driving lights
∑ Daystar upper dash panel
∑ Cobra 75 WX ST CB
∑ Firestik 4í CB antenna
∑ Teraflex spare tire CB antenna mount
∑ Manual disconnects (unbolted & tie-wrapped (zip-tied) up Ė quick discos are on my short-list of mods!)
∑ Staun deflators

I finally realized my dream of being a Jeep owner Ė 21 years after my first test-drive when, in April 2008 I found an unsold 2007 Sahara on the lot with only 115 kilometres on the clock. After a 30 minute test-drive and two hour-and-a-half round trips to the dealer, I brought her home on May 1, 2008

Itís lightly modified (for now) but the JK Sahara is surprisingly capable straight out of the box. Iím managing to do something to mod it every year: this year before the Pennís Woods Jamboree it was the Rubi takeoffs, IPF 968s (won at the P.W. Jamboree in 2009), the light bar, CB install and the deflators.

My kids are bugging me for a lift; I may just have to surprise them for the start of the 2012 season. Iím getting used to banging the frame & skids against rocks on the trail, but another few inches (and maybe 35s!) would help me get over even bigger obstacles.

Iíve taken my girlfriend, my two older kids, and now my brother and his oldest son on various Jeep Jamborees and the Ontario Federation of 4-wheel Drive Enthusiastsí (OF4WD) Camp NL in Minden, Ontario. I sure wish there were trails closer to home here in Kitchener, Ontario!

My buddy took me off roading and should me what a JEEP could do so I got a TJ to start and upgraded to the JK. Well, this is the Call of Duty Edition which is a Rubicon the only reason I got this one because it wall the only Ruby with 250 miles so I picked it up. I use it as my daily driver and wheel every weekend when possible. Next mods will be a 3 inch lift with adjustable Currie Control arms and full JKS front and rear adjustable trackbars, Fox Steering Stabilizer, and Fox Res Shocks. I will eventually get 35s with Yukon 5.13ís.

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.

Story:
After 4 years it is still the "little Jeep that could". It is still only has a Budget Boost and after 80+k miles on it 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, the couple months it has also been doing tow vehicle duty hauling our popup camper across PA on numerous trips. This past month I got the new clutch installed and a upgraded to a Heavy Duty Rock Krawler tie rod with Moog rod ends. I also got new set of 33" tires put on and by the time these 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.

I bought this JK my senior year of high school with little
intention of modifying. After high school I had end up joining an
Offroading club. We began to do trails in which more performance,
armor, and recovery gear was required. So the Jeep-Fever hit me in
which I began to indulge in the vast and endless possibilities in
upgrades. Because of that my Jeep is not even close to done.







That's the Lineup!
Let The Games Begin!

No popularity involved - ill always vote for the guy that has the balls to put his rig in the situation of wvus first pic with no rocker protection over a guy that thinks his jeep is a lifted john deer edition f450...that's just my taste.
