My name is Chris Willey. I'm from Manchester Ia. I am Vice Pres and Safety Coordinator for the Mississippi Valley Jeepers. We are a family based club in the IA, IL, WI tri-state area. My Jeep is a 1994 YJ with lots of mods. CJ7 grill, hood and made my own flat fenders. Dana 44 and GM 14 bolt full width axles 4.56 gears. 4.0, 5 speed, and Dana 300 with custom clocking ring. 3link front with 6" lift XJ coils 4" yj springs and revolver shackles. 38.5x14.5R15 Super Swamper SX tires. AJ's Offroad Armour 6 point cage. Kioti Kustoms (made by me) front winch bumper, rear bumper with swing away tire carrier, and rock rails. 9000 lb winch and full recovery gear. I wheel mostly in IA on private/club cround. And make at least one trip a year to The Badlands in Attica IN.
Here is a few pics of my son and I having some fun on Fathers Day.

:welcome:

Now you know some of these pictures could enter the Jeep of the Month. Great shot with your son, that is what is all about.

Always good to see a round headlight, lately we have been getting too many squares on this board. :grin:

Jim did you read the description carefully. His Jeep is a YJ with the CJ front clip and the 3 link front coil setup as seen in his other post

Jim, that happens when you drink too much also. lol.

Kioti,

Do you guys ever get up to Gilbert, MN? We are going to a Crawl 4 the Cure event in July, I think there are still a couple of openings if your interested. I just moved up here to MN and joined a 4x4 club located in Hastings, MN called rockbottom4x4.

I can't make it this year. Have some other commitments that weekend and getting ready for a trip to the Badlands in Attica IN in Aug. I have meet a few of the members from rockbottom4x4. Great group of wheelers. Hope to make it next year.

Jim your right the YJ is a great platform once you put a CJ front clip on it. :thumbsup:

So how do I enter the rig of the month?
