VOTE for the June CoTM!

Sup guys, bout that time, me thinks. We have SEVEN (damn you Vegas, you beat me!) XJs this month for you to choose. Let's get started!


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 Chris gets 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.
The winner of this contest earns all due bragging rights and a complimentary 1yr Premium JeepForum membership.

Please click the button just under the poll to help keep this thread up all week in the top voted/crawled threads.
Feel free to post positive comments or discussion and bump this thread as needed. This poll will close one week from today.

Favorite Modification: beer....er cup holder! High idle function.
Least Favorite Modification: None, they all are done for a reason.
Best Trail Damage: None, skid plates do their job, lotsa tree and creosote bush marks. I try and be careful so my ride gets me home and be easy on the terrain. We mostly do 500+ round trips into the Ca. deserts, so some/most of the trails are in Nat'l Parks, like DVNP and MNP.
Build Thread: Don't have one.
Optional: - Been in So Cal my whole life. Off roading since I was 10 years old, still remember my first experience, a Kawasaki KD100 at El Mirage, I was hooked! Had 4 or 5 full size Chevys over the years, still have a 2006 Silverado with a Duramax to tow the toys. Lotsa dirt bikes too. I came uopn a 1968 Kaiser/Jeep M35A2WW about 10 years ago. I found a website called SteelSoldiers, I am still a mod over there, a bunch of military vehicle owners. There are a bunch of them out here in So Cal, so, I took it upon myself to organize an event that took place twice a year out in the desert for the locals, It was dubbed "Camp Dirtbag", because, that's what we are! Those big POS, 14.000 lb trucks can go almost anywhere! Lots of 6 wheeling and other activities. 5 years later, the event turned from a small gathering to a very large gathering, 20 + vehicles and 75+ people, too much work, not enough play. I stopped hosting the event and sold the deuce and a half and trailer. I started lookin' for another off road capable vehicle. The people I am involved with like to explore old mines as much as I do. I decided on a short wheelbase Jeep. Didn't want a CJ because I like to stay out of inclimate weather when in the dez, so I chose a Cherokee. Looked long and hard over 6 months. All the trucks I looked at that were "clean" to the current owner, were no better than pick-a-part vehicles. Finally found one that was truly clean, but had 260k on the odo and ran ratty. I am a mechanic, no biggie! Bought it, a '95 Country. Fixed the way it ran, it now has 285k on the clock and runs great with no oil usage and 21 mpg on the hwy! 1st trip out showed its weaknesses. The next 6 months were used to install the lift and locker, wheels and tires and some other mods. It has taken me all over the Ca desert, never left me. It has close to 3000 miles in the dirt. I am truly impressed with this toy! It has been a constant evolution to get to the place the truck is now. I am looking fwd to finding a take out engine and building it. My girls love it, my wife hates it almost as much as she hated the deuce, but that's OK, that's part of the fun of it

Wow. Lots of super nice rigs this month. From mild to wild we have some great entries to chose from. This is gonna be tough.

Atmos: What can I say. Awesome build of a very incredible rig. The guy has skills.

Dunmerboy: Super clean expedition style XJ. I would be proud to drive this one too.

M35A2: Another super clean expedition style XJ. Go prepared is one of my favorite motos and it looks to me like M goes prepared for anything.

DNFJ: This guy knows what an XJ is for. Wheel, break, fix, repeat. I like this one too.

nolanbalzarini: I haven't seen much of this rig before but I sure like the front and rear flares. Might have to investigate these a bit further. Nice rig.

Circles: A nice clean daily that he has some fun with. That is what jeeping is all about.

And then there is Spokes: This rig has been near the top of many COTM's over the last couple years. I think it's time for him to "catch the garter". I have always been partial to Red.


Decisions. Decisions. Decisions..........
