Best MJ story- I had an MJ when I was in college and blew up the 4.0 that was in it. I held on to it for a bit and sold it like an idiot. Well I had a YJ and the a TJ. I sold the TJ to fund this project because I wanted something different than the typical Wranglers you see on the trails. So after two years of grinding on this thing it is ready for it's maiden voyage and I couldn't be more happier. 



CC is Awesome! Why? I love all the information that is on this forum. Plus it is awesome to see all the people thatlove these little trucks as much as I do.
