And speaking as a judge,
From what I've seen so far there aren't enough pictures or enough explanation about things...
I think Eddie has done a fine job of putting this together. It’s clear that submissions will be one pic, choose it well. Stop thumping your chest, we all know what you are. ... "judge"
No one has mentioned custom bumpers, sway bar disconnects, ect. so far.
Only one guy has mentioned full width axles, and I'd REALLY like to see some drivers view pictures of the cockpit layout also...
There is a section for additional mods, I know its hard to understand but that’s where this information should be provided. So far, those that have submitted, have not had the same trouble understanding this.
As far as what you would like to see, this is not YOUR contest. If you’re trying to bait for submissions that follow your “wishes”, I’d suggest you go start your own forum and contest.
Trail action pictures are ALWAYS a good thing!
I'd like to actually get the low down on the rig I'm supposed to be voting for!
I don't know about the other two judges, but speaking for myself,
Mall pounders need not apply, trail jeeps will always get top marks.
Good paint always a plus, but not necessary...
Really? Again with baiting for your standards.
I would suggest to anyone wanting to submit their rig for review to do so with the understanding that the OTHER judges will be fair and open minded, YOU have already failed the test.
I have not been on JF for some time as it is my belief that YOU have polluted the ground we all stand on in here. The forum was about quality, NOT quantity.
Contestants, submit your pic with the background of your choice. In your driveway with wife or kids, action, stuck, muddy, polished. Whatever makes you happy.
'Home Brew' solutions and 'Homemade' parts always take top honors over 'Mail Order' parts!
I’ve welded and fabed quite a bit on my rig. I know the expense of design, tools and material. There are some AWESOME suppliers of parts out there that we all add to our rigs to get the look we like. I'd like to see them without precondition
I know, let’s see some wheels you smelted or water-jetted or the dizzy cap you chewed from bark while on the trail.
A guy with a "Mail Order-Mall Pounder" will get trumped by a plain, but capable trail jeep!
Ok, so everyone that has nice paint, nice parts, and spent any amount of time making their Jeep look better, AND took their pic in the driveway needs to understand that at least one judge has already eliminated your Jeep from the competition. Nice! Self Proclaimed Jerk!
If that sounds harsh, then follow me on a 'Trail' around here some time and you will see why I swing that way!
I wouldn’t follow you anywhere. You are an irritant that gets under my skin with your every post.
To the forum group, I have to apologize. I thought Eddie had done a great job of getting this together in such short time, I also thought it would be a fair contest that would help PROMOTE the CJ forum. This precondition garbage is just that. I don't adhere to it, and although I knew he would do this, I am disgusted to see it.
