Story. I always liked Jeeps since I was a little girl and my dad took me wheeling. I decided to buy my own in 2011, and just loved the Cosmic blue color. Since getting a Jeep it has turned me into a true Jeep fan, as most of us I am always thinking about and planning for the next mod. I have taken my Jeep which is nicknamed "Smurfette" to Moab in 2012 and 2013 and I am hooked. I plan to go back every year that I can.

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 (hopefully 2014) 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.

Great start for 2014
Good Luck To All Of You

I always have a hard time voting in these. Cyber, your rig is really coming along GREAT! Cosmicblue - more pics of your rig is great and do you have a MOAB thread with pics?

Meep and taminal are more then difficult to decide which one I like more.

Thread makes me wish I could vote 4 times instead of only once.

Lots of pics yes, build thread is on another fourm, and at this point it is a pretty short build.
