So Rockjock 60's front and rear are in order, Goodyear MTR/K 42's, a coilover system and alot of body trimming!!! Cannot wait to get back to Moab!!!!!!!!!

Story:
I have owned multiple Jeeps but this one got me into rocks. Before I was all about mud and the "look", but with multiple hours on Jeepforum during my last deployment it got me try new terrian and build it for rocks/trails. There are 2 builds specifically but I'm not sure I can mention their names. So far I've taken her to URE and Rausch and loved every day that I went.

Story:
It still 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. Still running 33" tires 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.

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.









Wow! What a great way to start the new season
Good Luck To All

Thanks! I stole the idea from my buddy in the TJ world. I was thinking of ideas to increase participation across the board - entries, voting, bumping, conversation, etc. If more people become invested and participate, it will increase votes and more conversation....well, that is my thought.

It's obvious the voters aren't scrolling far enough down to see my entry and they're off! Walle and XFLSTL are neck and neck!

Meh my jk is pretty regular. Its name is equally funny.

Sport s with hood lights. I'm going to be getting some 33s on it in the coming weeks, but I don't have the funds to build like you folks. So I leave that to the pros.
