Voting Rules and Guidelines

Only votes from JeepForum members of more than 30 days will be counted in the final tally.
Votes from mystery members with very low post counts could also be not counted.

If your entry makes it to the poll, as a contestant you have one opportunity to vote for yourself if you choose to do so.
If you are found cheating in any way you will be disqualified from the contest and banned from the forum until I get over it, which definitely won’t be before the contest ends.

Any of following will be considered cheating:
1. Posts, threads or discussion anywhere within JeepForum.com asking for votes.
2. Promoting the contest on any other website - this includes posts, threads, signatures, discussion, pictures or anything hinting at the fact that you are competing.
3. Slander will not be tolerated under any condition or reason. This contest is intended to be fun so keep the discussion positive natured.
4. Do not post extra pictures of contestant rigs in the voting thread as there is a picture limit in place.
Feel free to police the internet as you see fit for violations of the above rules and PM me links and screenshots of any suspected problems.

This contest is for the active members of JF to decide. The only advertising you are allowed to do for yourself is in your JF signature similarly to what you'll see in mine. Let’s have good clean poll thread here thanks.

Wheels/Tires: 33x12.5x15 Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs on Cragar V5 rims

Other Notable Modifications: IRO OTK steering and double sheer track bar

Favorite Modification: My Cree LED foglights. The visibility with them is insane.

Least Favorite Modification: TC drop. Waste of money that didn't fix my DW. Probably end up getting rid of it whenever I can afford an SYE. On the plus side it is less stressful on the ujoints.

Best Trail Damage: None thankfully. Normally not something I'd care about but this thing is pretty clean I don't want to damage a clean MJ as rare as they're getting.

Build Thread: Project Motörcharge 2.0

Optional: Bought this jeep in high school. First started out with a junkyard 3" lift. Rode crappy and preformed even worse. Made some money and upgraded to what I have today. Doing what i can and spending what I can to make it better but my college budget likes to put a hold on it. Always try to leave a little time for my jeep in my busy weekly schedule; working 2 jobs and attending college full time.

As host of this contest I typically abstain from voting despite all the cool things that catch my eye.
This is the first time though that I recall anyone entering a jeep they've owned half of their life. With respect for that dedication, I have to put a vote on the board this month.

If you're still DD'ing it 13 years from now, you'll get my vote.
