**TIE-BREAKER POLL deja vu** Who's gonna be the July COTM - final answer!!!

Here we have two XJ's that keep rising to the top together. That in itself tells me they're both winners. But only one can be the July14 COTM and it's up to you to help decide. I don't know how this is going to end up but I know there's a tale here to be told around campfires and mudpits for many weekends to come.

Here's another look at the rigs, check em out and post those votes.
This tie breaker shoot-out poll will close in 24 hours. Standard COTM rules apply.
Linkback for the history books > Vote for the Jurassic July Cherokee Of The Month!!!.
Let's getter done!

Year: - 1999

Model: - XJ Sport

Drive Train: - 4.0/AW4, high pinion D30 with Aussie locker and open 29 spline C8.25

Suspension: - 4.5" RE coils, RC fixed lowers, Currie Johnny Joint Adj Uppers, 11/10" travel F/R shocks with rear lower mounts raised to axle level, custom front bumpstops, RE 3.5" leaf springs, 1.5" shackles, HD Offroad No Lift Shackle Relocation brackets, custom fabbed bumpstop plates and Omix Ada 4.1" frame side bumps

Wheels/Tires: - 35" Hankook RT03's on 15x8 Cragar D Windows

Other Notable Modifications: - Dirtbound Offroad Front bumper, custom wraparound rear bumper, HD Offroad frame stiffeners, removeable doors, Autopal H4/Putco harness/Hella 80/100w, SBLED's Cool White Gauge cluster upgrade, Aux Fan wired to switch, etc.

Favorite Modification: - Toss-up between locker and stiffeners. If i started the build over those would be my first mods.

Least Favorite Modification: - Ever fooling with an AAL, shoulda bought full leafs from the beginning.

Best Trail Damage: - Passenger rocker got smashed up past the bottom of the door at WBR last year.

Build Thread: - VegasGT's "Clifford The Big Red Unibody"

Optional: - As with most Jeep builds things get out of hand fast. Bought this thing completely unmolested, with intent of a budget boost, TJ Moabs, and not much else. Then I started wheeling more and more, slowly fixing/upgrading things as I saw the need. Theres still so much to do but at its current state it does everything I ask of it. My wife, daughter, and I load up in it, drive an hour to the offroad park, and beat on it all day, fold the seats down and set up a sleeping platform, then wake up the next morning and do it again. After the extended weekend trips we air back up and drive it the hour back home cruising at 70 mph. Even the wife wheels it haha. Very happy with the way it all turned out.

Let me break this down in an AKIQPilot type way:

VegasGT - Brandon, I've always loved your rig. Your constant additions to it have been awesome and inspiring. You've always been helpful to me, and haven't called me a dumb *** like Jordan does. You're kind of a pic whore, but I'm okay with that. Now, we're bros on snapchat, and maybe one day we'll get to wheel together. For that reason, I can't let you win.

AKIQPilot - Man, you've got an awesome rig. That pic of you winching out of the mud that you have up in this thread is one of my favorite XJ pics ever. Your rig really has the "wow" factor that no other on this forum really has. You really be more like Brandon and pic whore your rig.

AKIQPilot gets my vote.
