We were wheeling one day, and several of us had already been through this trail once and were going to wheel it again with a larger group. It is rated a 4, and the hardest rated trails at the Park are 5's. On the approach to the 1st hard obstacle on the trail, I was trying to swing wide to get a good line, and obviously wasn't paying as much attention to tire placement as I should have. The picture is worth 1000 words. I got high centered on a big rock, and was determined to not use my winch (pretty much just to be able to say I hadn't had to use it yet.) A few friends rocked me back and forth until I was able to gain traction and drive off of it. I bent my rear driveshaft in the process, but managed to finish the day wheeling that trail, several others, and also one of the hardest rated trails in the Park. The President of the club took this pic, and proceeded to post it on all the boards he is on, just because he had finally seen me have some trouble.

Also, i've owned two BMW 5 series cars and I have gotten more questions and onlookers with this Jeep. How cool is that? Something about me, I have everlasting energy and am skilled in many things but I can't tell you or i'd have to.....(you know the rest).

As I got to the base of the ridge my fuel light came on. I thought, WTF it's just a couple miles, my toyota would go 30 or more with the light on no problem. So off I go not a care in the world. Got to the top just before sunset and watched a distant thunderstorm over some distant ridges. It was just beautiful ! So I get back in my JK and start it up, buckle my seatbelt and............... the engine died. I thought no f--king way !! Yup... way! It was sitting nose down and I hoped if I just coasted a little to level it I could pick up some fuel. Nope ! So now I'm thinking I need to call my buddy to bring me some gas, as he will know where I am. No luck. And there is no way I can tell anyone else how to find me ! So after I get a hold of another friend who is going to have her brother come with his 4x4 I start my 4 mile walk to the road. It's so dark, no moon. OK so how hard are you all laughing at this point? It gets better! We finally meet up at the road, I jump in and we start back up the trails. All the way I'm listening to him complain that this is why he doesn't go off road. We finally get to my Jeep, jump out, and he reaches in the bed and pulls out the smallest gas can I have ever seen! Needless to say the 1 gallon or so didn't do the trick. So I had to leave my precious new toy all alone for the night, and go home without it. My wife wasn't to amused when I got home, and my buddy almost pissed his pants laughing when I called him the next day. So needless to say I learned when the Jeep says empty it means it. And if I'm going to wheel alone I make sure it's where someone knows how to find me. And lastly if you need someone to bring you gas, be specific that you need more than a thimble full.

One day i was sitting around and i was like "i gotta lift this ****" So in the preceeding weeks i gave my self headaches over which lift to get, so many choices and so many answers. I finally settled for the Full Traction 3" Economy lift. I added a front trac bar to help prevent any problems and have been very happy asside from the install, which took about 15 hours spread through a weekend. None of those damn parts wanted to just bolt in. I did recently swap out the coils to the HD to make up for the bumper (later on).
After the lift i rode with stock meats for a week or two while i waited for my rims and tires. BFG M/T's were a no brainer for me, and i loved the simplicity of the ProComp 1069s. On they went and down went my gas mileage, Oh well, it's a Jeep.
Over the next month or so i was on some mild trails to sand dunes getting acquainted with the JK. But this whole time i knew something was missing... rock rails. So off to the metal supply store i went. 3 months an about $180 later i had my self a pretty nice set of rails. In that span of time i decided i needed a bumper too, it never stops. So another trip to the supply store and another $100 in metal. This time it only took 2 months to build. The finished product i think looks nice and i am very proud of it. There is truly no other JK that looks like mine. I have never built anything from scratch before, or welded for that matter, and now everytime i see my JK i see a little bit of me in it. Winter is now coming, as are future mods. My next plan is a rear bumper/carrier, which will probably be worked on over christmas break. This is my first Jeep and i truly love it. I am young and i am inexperienced, but i am now a Jeep owner, and plan to carry the tradition in the many years to come.

This poll expires in 10 days. After that the winner will be the one with the most votes. In the even of a tie, a tire breaker question will be asked at a prearranged time when the contestants are on line. The first one to answer correctly will be the winner.

Good luck to the 4 entrants!

RedRockJK got my vote, if only because he already spent so much on his JK... his wallet could use a little break IMO.

All right, I vote for BlkRuby because it sounds like he's got the desire to do what the red star needs - to dig in and get your hands dirty, try new things and see how it turns out. Of course RedRock already does that, but I don't like that color

Yeah, he admits he's new and wants to learn. Plus I give him big bonus points for building his own bumper.
