Story:
I purchased my JKUR in March of 2011 and deployed to Afghanistan in Sept 2011. When I deployed the JKU was completely stock. Over the 6 months I was gone I spend countless hours here on JF reading about other member Jeeps and builds. The information and advice gained was priceless and around X-Mas I had started purchasing my mods. I redeployed home in March and began my build. It unfortunately took me longer than I had wanted to get a lot done. I had wanted to get my JKU into the Apr contest but life and work tends to slow us down. I was able to finally get my build caught up to the to the mountain of parts I had in my garage just in time for next deployment here in the beginning of Sept.

Story: my 2009 JKU was mine that I got spring break of sophomore year so march 2012. My DD I drive 30 miles to school every day in and take the minimum maintenance roads anytime I can.

Most recent mod is a rear bumper I built from scratch for about 100$ that is nearly indestructible

We still have TeraFlex providing a little prize for the winners :thumbsup:
I just received a PM suggesting that we may have another contributor to the prize pot! All I will say right now is that their name starts with "M" :wolverine:

Yeah first guy has my vote for sure. There is another jeep in the contest that is built very well and would have had my vote if he had some wheeling pictures instead of street pictures. Not saying he does not wheel but you know we need pictures! That being said all these jeeps are nice and wish everyone the best of luck!

Thank you and all others who have voted for me. I too wish that I had some trail pics but since Jan 2011 I have only been home for about 5 weeks each summer and haven't had a chance to go wheeling in it as is sits in the pics.
