Not about winning here, but my 75 CJ5, friend's 72 FJ40, another friend's 72 Blazer. Photo taken facing west into the central valley, Yosemite behind the photographers back. Photo taken last year. Sorry, no shiny paint, they're all trail runners.

The spot this photo was taken from is in flames as I post this. About 10 miles from my house, fire headed this way, very smoky here....

Yes, even just a tub can still retain enough potency to "win" over some newer vehicles. Nice...

So YJ Tub trumps old CJ tub?
(look closely and you can tell that the yellow tub is a YJ tub and his old CJ jub is being crowded out of the pick by the YJ tub and the truck on dubbs)

Wow, you're right! Gold medal goes to the 1/8 of a white CJ tub, silver to the yellow YJ tub, and I guess bronze goes to the Chevy through lack of other participants. Nice.
