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.

IRO hack-n-tap SYE & driveline in cargo area of the Jeep now, will be installed soon. Most of the parts for the AC / OBA conversion in hand, trying to find time...

Several nice rigs for sure. I voted for Nolan because he has been on the cusp of winning this thing several times in the last year but there always seems to be a rig that edges him out. DNFJ is in the same boat.

Mtb Jak has a very nice XJ too.

Good luck to everyone.

Mtb Jak has my vote this time around. I love the waggy clip swap along with the newer body. Keep up the great work.

More or less same. Would have voted for DNFJs if he hadn't bought it mostly how it is. Not that I'm against anyone buying their rigs, but I felt like Nolan deserves some recognition for the work he's put into his.
