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!

Wheels/Tires: 33x12.5x15 BFG KM2's on Unique Series 252 steelies

Other Notable Modifications: Aussie locker out back; Rusty's Adjustable uppers w/ flex joints; Crown Heavy Duty steering upgrade; BrownDog poly motor mounts; both swaybars pulled; TnT Customs chassis stiffeners; TnT Customs XD belly pan; Tomken fueltank skid; Solid Axle Ind. diff covers f/r; 10 Factory outer axle tube seals; RC extended front brake lines; installed hitch for rear shackle recovery; homemade rear ubolt plate bumpstop set-up; hockeypuck bump set-up in front; homemade hood spacers; homemade rear bpe's; rust abatement/rattle-can two toned; fenders trimmed; rear quarters cut&boxed; p/w's cut&folded; fake rear glass; carpets pulled; Mastercraft seats; and a bunch of maintenance overhauls

Favorite Modification: The Aussie and the stiffeners rank high but honestly my favorite is probably the Mastercraft seats - very nice!

Least Favorite Modification: none - I like wrenching on it

Best Trail Damage: blowing out the rear glass - look on my daughter's face was priceless..lol

Build Thread: Milton's Other Build Thread

Optional: The XJ is the project/toy Jeep of our fleet and was bought for the purpose of "saving" the WK from trail damage. I like driving it around but I bought it to wheel it. IMO it's an awesome platform to work on and wheel and the affordability and utility over the Wranglers can't be beat!

This poll is closed, and an interesting run it was. Good show gents.
Ladies and Gentlemen and Jeepers, our January COTM is a well built rig that's full of function and been around this forum a long time now while building up about a ton and a half of wheelin oriented modifications that make it worthy of a crown.

Please join me here and now in congratulating JeepN4KC as the
JeepForum January 2015 Cherokee Of The Month

In addition to all due respects and bragging rights associated with this honor, our COTMs also win a complimentary year of premium JeepForum membership in recognition of their achievement. You'll see this Cherokee again in the 2015 COTY contest come December, which seems a long way off right now but will be here before you know it.

Thanks to everyone for the double duty voting this month!
