January 09 ROTM Submissions Thread

CLOSED. Voting will end Wednesday January 14th.

**** The winner of ROTM will receive 3 quarts of Amsoil's Severe Gear SVG 75W-90 fluid courtesy of Ridin' Around ****

Alright I just copied some of this off Mallcrawlin (sorry Dave). This month will be an exception to some of these rules because we had a late start. These rules can change.

-If there is a lack of interest then ROTM will be deleted.

-15 rigs will be allowed. (If you didn't make it in time, to bad, try next month)

-Sorry no stock rigs allowed.

-Anyone with a modified ZJ or WJ can enter.

-Submissions will start the 15th of each month for the following month's ROTM. After I compile the submissions, the voting will begin.

-You can NOT save a spot then come back and fill out you submission. The first 15 completed submissions will go to vote.

-The submission format will be as follows:

2 pics of the rig, and only 2 (no videos) at least one of those pics must be offroad. (not poser offroad, we want to see that you actually wheel your rig and its not just a mall crawler)

We don't need a novel on each one, just cover the basics. If you must, you can add a sentence or two of why you should be the winner. Let the games begin.
