Story:
It only has a Budget Boost and after 110+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 regularly 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 has also been doing tow vehicle duty hauling our popup camper across PA on numerous trips. If I ever get my Cherokee running hopefully I will be able to retire the JK from daily driver status and give it a makeover to more of a dedicated trail rig.

Story:
I've owned and driven Jeeps my whole life. I bought this 2012 brand new right outside of Ft Campbell KY. I haven't been able to do everything I want to with it because I'm usually pretty broke, but it's slowly getting cooler as time goes by. It may not be the nicest or most capable JK in the contest but I have a ton of fun in it.
Mods to come: 35's BDS or Teraflex BB and shocks, then a cheap winch, then whatever else I feel like.

Story: I purchased this Jeep used on 1/23/2012 and I took it for some stock off-roading with some buddies and I was hooked. I've been dumping as much money into the Jeep as often as possibly to keep raising the capabilities. Within the year I plan to make a trip out to MOAB with my father and we will be towing our rigs down! I update my build thread on this forum step by step as I go and I hope it has inspired some of you just how some of you have inspired me. I appreciate all the continued support throughout my build and I apologize for the lack of off-roading pictures or pictures without all my mods on.










rah2eq

Mods: 2.5" Rock Krawler Lift, 35" KM2's, Bilstein 5100's. Hella lights, Superchips tuned
Story: I went to Camp Jeep when I was in 7th grade, and wanted a Jeep ever since. After waiting for years, I finally got and modded my 2010 JK Mountain edition myself in my garage, and have since added a 1978 Jeep CJ5 to the fleet.







Good Luck Everyone
