    Yes, even though it's a 4.0, it's still the Rig of the Month!

    I've wheeled with Matt on several occasions and it's really one of those rare rigs that gets pushed real hard on some very technical trails but still looks very clean as well! Congrats Matt!

    Congrats!

    I was very confused when I saw the title, considering my buggy is a 97 ZJ and my name's Matt, but I didn't enter the contest, haha.

    Very nice! You seem to have somehow succeeded at the whole wheel hard without a bunch of body damage methodology. That didn't work out too well for me.

    Congrats!

    I've come close a couple times to writting it off. Lucky for me gravity wasn't pulling very hard those days.

    Matt's reign at the top is almost up! Make sure to get your rig submitted for the October RotM!
