Well I’m not going to bother with a vote check. I think I about know everyone that voted anyways.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Comanche brother enter and even longer since one has swept so many hearts away to take home the trophy. This rig just brings on respect for the fine effort and great results. Nice work with this jeep, I’m pleased to put it in the JF hall of fame.
Our November COTM receives a complimentary one year premium JeepForum membership in recognition plus all due bragging rights, and has earned the final spot in the COTY contest next month – stay tuned.
Congratulations on the well-earned win and big sweep here. See you in December!
