September 2012 JOTM Winner Al aka SharkmanTx
The Jeep started out as a pristine, garage kept and never wheeled 1992 YJ Islander that he bought in the summer of 2007. He started selling parts off of it immediately. Through sales, swaps and buys it has ended up being a 1992 YJ straight 6 with automatic, hardtop, full doors and cloth half doors. He has added Poison Spyder Customs Crusher Corners with 3 inch flares, Rocker Knocker Sliders, Flat Fenders with 3 inch flares, Power Steering Skid, Comp Stinger and Rear Stinger Tire carrier. It also has a Warn gas tank skid, SB winch, Lights by Rigid Industries, custom flame stitched suspension seats front and rear from Twisted Stitch. All of the mods have either be bought or customized by LSJC’s awesome vendors.
Since the day he bought it he knew it would not stay red. He decided in 2009 to paint it Sublime Green from Mopar. Every piece he bought for the Jeep is function first but he ask does it come in lime green or black to keep the overall theme of his Jeep. His kids named it Daddy-O because it reminds them of Him. He often drives it with his matching Vans on which are Lime Green.
The Picture was taken on the first morning after camping with the group from LSJC on the Beach Bash Run to Padre Island at about 6am. They had all camped with their Jeeps in front of them so when he got out of the tent that morning to make coffee all he saw was an incredible sun rise out over the Gulf of Mexico.
