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" RC coils up front w/ RC shocks and 3.5 RE leaf packs under Crown oe shackles and RC Relo brackets w/ ProComp 11+" travel 92000 series nitros (4.5"-5" lift overall w/ rake - perfect for loading the rear with gear)

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; installed hitch for rear shackle recovery; homemade rear ubolt plate bumpstop set-up; 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!

I currently have a built set of HP D30 and XJ D44 w. lockers and 4.56 gears waiting to go in this winter. Chopped Hatch will be next

Wheels/Tires: Cheap steelies and 35x12.5 General Reds

Other Notable Modifications: Dana 44 front swap 4.56s

Favorite Modification: Detroits, Ruffstuff Steering, Dirtbound Bumper and skids!

Least Favorite Modification: By far the front ranchos, they rode like dog dirt and were scary without a swaybar. Also the ZJ tie rod I still bent it but it was better than the stock tooth pick.

Best Trail Damage: Custom rockers and I smoked and aw4! Twisted my 8.25 splines while killing bears.

Build Thread: Zips 2.0 my 98

Optional: I wish I kept it simple. My 1988 had a bad set of spring hangers and needed a new unibody by the time I did all of that it was going to cost the same as what I paid for this baby! So it started small just my lift some cheap 33s and now I have the full blown jeep thing. It was a learning curve, I am doing stuff I thought I wouldnt ever try.
