Happy to hear we will have as many entries as we will this month. Surpassing the ten and having to narrow it down is a good start! Prizes are good, but that only goes so far. Out of curiosity... How long ago did you take it over canman?
I haven't been around jf as a member for all that long, after stalking for a while. I always looked at the yj contest being slower due to the general interest in them being slower.
The yj is my favorite generation, as is the case with many of you I am sure... But no question we are in the minority. Beyond that, I tend to follow more tj builds personally, largely due to the fact that yj owners don't seem to take as unique directions with their vehicles. Granted my jeep is an extreme in that regards (Maybe some jeepers would say extreme to a fault) but unique visions are what draw interest to a build... Or a contest for me.
I like to follow builds that are pushing the norm... Or doing something to set it apart from other yj's... Or jeeps for that matter. When you look at the tj contest for instance... You see a larger variety. Sometimes I struggle To really see the vision to yj builds... They just don't seem to be as inspired.
The fact that the jk is well established now... Means the tj is now a reasonably priced jeep to start with, and has replaced the yj as the "previous model" of jeep.
Not discrediting yj's or yj owners... Simply some reasoning I see for the lower interest in this contest.
Overall... I look forward to seeing the yj's every month! Bring it this month guys!
