Voted for the guy with the license plates. Its one thing to build a radical unique and capable jeep. But its another thing to build one thats street-legal.

Went with TDIJ because I myself would prefer a complete jeep body, not a huge fan of the buggy look.

But they both look great!
Congrats guys!

Voted. I dig the TDI, but he needs a cage (especially since he already rolled it). Plus I'm getting close going Juggy w/ mine.

I respect that completely... A cage is one of the things I use to narrow down the contestants that I vote for. I will vote for someone without a cage if I really like their vision, however I typically see a cage as a minimum requirement for a jeep build to be considered worthy.

Could not agree more that I am long overdue for one. A cage is the #1 objective for this winter. I have been going back and forth on full cage vs adding on to the stock cage forever. Ultimately I have done nothing as a result. I wanted to do it last winter but with all that I did in the major transformation, some things not vital to making it all work together had to give. I am in the planning stage of my cage right now... been working on autocad drawing up possible designs. At the moment I'm leaning towards a full custom cage with a bit of a fastback design.

I did roll it in August... not on a technical section at all, but had a 4 month old stainless brake line blow out, and gravity took over. I was on a trip with many spots where that failure would have meant imminent death (cage or no cage) via thousand foot drop offs, and even where it happened had a lot of potential for it to be much more serious, and easily could have been fatal. In the location and situation I was in when the failure occurred, I look at what happened as being the best case scenario. The fact that I rolled where I did saved my life... If I wouldn't have rolled it... and continued on my wheels any further I likely wouldn't even be voting in this contest much less be entered in it. Fortunately I walked away completely unharmed, and no one was riding along. A buddy of mine was driving it up until about two minutes before the failure. Glad it didn't happen to him. Ultimately no physical harm done... and that was what mattered at the end of the day!

I will be the first to say that I should have had a cage long ago. I knew it... but all the excitement surrounding the body work, engine and axle swapping just overshadowed it. I've been saying I "NEED" to do a cage for a long time. If I ever do another off road jeep build, caging will come very early in the build.

I would recommend it as an early part of any build. I am proof that you don't have to be doing anything challenging, or risky to find yourself in a rollover. I upgraded to stainless brake lines for the added strength and durability... only to have the failure in that said part nearly kill me. The stock cage is not sufficient. Even if a full cage is not in your budget or skill level, adding an aftermarket front section is very reasonably priced and will improve your safety dramatically. I believe every jeep(even street only ones) should have at least that!

Thanks to everyone for voting... and thanks to anticanman for hosting an additional contest this month!
