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: - 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.
