If it gets wheeled... I will

The themes are a good way to get people afraid of losing to the type of jeep that always wins to sign on I don't think there will be many problems with entrants

Yeah my XJ doesn't hold a candle to these rigs, why would I waste everyone's time including my own for it to just be scrolled past and someone with a million dollar monster XJ gets the win.

Lol..........million dollar monster..............lol

I've yet to see an XJ build in here where money is no object. I'd say everyone in this COTY has done due diligence where $ is concerned.

I'm pretty sure that XJ that is winning, has more invested in his rig than I paid for mine. Not that I have anything against it, it's just an insane rig and not comparable to mine. To each his own.

Thanks for the themes input people, lots of valid comments.
We'll do Little Jeeps for January and mallcrawlin in March then let the entries speak for themselves. Let's see what kind of turnout we get.
There's also 11 jeeps that can't enter every month because they've won in the past year.

I think this poll is about done except the final jostling for places in the backfield.

The poll is closed and a review of the votes indicates we had a good clean contest here, thanks everybody!

The forum has spoken. Our 2013 COTY is a noteworthy XJ that doesn't take long to show how much love and effort went into it, and the action pics I've seen have me knowing I'd enjoy wheelin together. This tough rig gets used like it was built to and is a fine addition to the JF COTY hall of fame lifetime members.

Ladies and Gentlemen and Jeepers, please welcome SFRautomotive as your
2013 Cherokee Of The YEAR!!
