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 wonít 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. Letís have good clean poll thread here thanks.

Suspension: Rusty's 8.5 long arm kit, iron rock steering kit

Wheels/Tires: Cragar soft 8, 35x12.5x15 MTR Kevlar

Other Notable Modifications: Nates winch bumper with smittybuilt 10k winch, Logan metal rear bumper, rock sliders, Trocko Safari rack, gas tank skid, TC skid

Favorite Modification: long arm or gears

Least Favorite Modification: Smittybuilt winch is my least favorite mod because it doesn't hold up to weather and powder coat peels.

Best Trail Damage: I bent my steering arm on a trail, I trusted a spotter that I shouldn't have and paid the price

Optional: I had a 96 Xj but it was flooded in hurricane Sandy with water up to the dash. I stripped everything off and found a 2000 in a senior development the 1st day it posted. Bought it on the spot. I then slowly rebuilt everything and install lift the weekend before the Pa jeep show. It was a long process once I was settle in a new home and am very happy with how the jeep sits today. There is a lot of blood sweat and tears in the jeep. But love it and feel it can go threw just about anything!

Voted! I used the ol' VegasGT reasoning and picked the rig that felt the most thought out. I'm also a sucker for built stockers lol

Voted. Typical month of me needing more votes. All solid rigs, so I went with the one that stood out.

shooptube. Stock looking, clean rig with clever mods that make it a better commuter all around. Would love to have it as a daily. Actual got inspiration to do my extended idle switch from him I believe.
