Vote for the November Cherokee Of The Month!!!

Hard to believe its time for the final COTM contest of 2015. Seems like just the other day we were getting ready for the first contest of the year. But here we are now well into November with Christmas only right around the corner. I dont have a big selection of jeeps to show you this month but the ones weve got are good ones. Its up to you to decide which will be the JeepForum November 2015 Cherokee Of The Month. Take your time to check em out and when you find your favorite, show your support and approval by casting your vote!

Feel free to post positive comments or discussion and bump this thread as needed. This poll will close one week from today and the winner earns all due bragging rights plus a complimentary 1yr Premium JeepForum membership and more importantly, the final spot in the 2015 Cherokee Of The Year contest NEXT MONTH!

Here are your COTM entries in the order received. Good luck to all!!

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 wont 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. Lets have good clean poll thread here thanks.

Suspension: Rough Country 4.5 Long Arm Lift

Wheels/Tires: Cragar Soft 8's 15"x8" rims with Duratrac 33x12.5 tires

Other Notable Modifications: Currie Currectlync Steering, Skid Plates, Diff covers, ARB Deluxe Bullbar front bumper with Warn 8000lbs Winch, JCR heavy Duty rear bumper, AJ's Super Rock Rails, Custom Roof Rack Side Rails, 784 Fuel Injectors, 63mm Throttle Body, AEM Brute Force Intake, Banks TorqueTube Headers, Custom Exhaust, Flow Master Super 44, SYE, Tom Woods Custom DriveShafts, Bushwacker Flat Fender Flares

Favorite Modification: Re-gearing to 4.56

Least Favorite Modification: Quick Disco Sway Bar Link (Broke two sets so far, so I'm going with Currie Antirock ASAP)

Best Trail Damage: Blew out my headlight and cracked my grill on "Fins and Things" in Moab

Build Thread: Expedition Build: Yellow Jeep XJ

Optional: This Jeep XJ is an expedition build which has sustained 2 people on the road for over a month with over 9K miles traveled in a single cross country trip in October 2015. On this trip it crossed one contention, and reached 3 bodies of water (Atlantic, Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico). Under full load of gear we wheeled in Centralia PA, "Fins and Things" Moab UT, Medano Pass CO, Mojave Desert CA, "Soldiers Pass" Sedona AZ and more in one cross country trip. From 80 on the interstate, to cities, country, asphalt, dirt, rock, mud, clay, sand and water this build has proved itself capable.
It made it through floods, a heavy late monsoon season with remnants of Hurricane Patricia with 30+ MPH winds while traveling back east.
All in one trip.
All three photographs below are taken from this trip.

Earlier this year we took this Jeep from New Hampshire to Key West, the southern most point in the U.S.
We traveled the coast by driving paved roads, dirt roads, beaches etc. This rig has traveled up, down and across the United States in 2015.

This is a hybrid build which can handle both on and off-road expeditions for an extended period of time.
We chose 4.5 inches of lift so it would maintain a low center of gravity while on both the trail and highway, and help compensate for the added weight of vehicle modifications and expedition gear to avoid making the vehicle top heavy.
It is also my Daily Driver.

I am The F.N.G. (The F'n New Guy)
And this is my Jeep.

Drive Train: 4.6L Stroked I6, assembled by me. AW4, NP231 with IRO SYE, Tom-Woods Shafts, D30/D35

Suspension: Rusty's front coils, custom sway bar disconnects, longer solid LCA's. S10 Bastard pack rear, extended bump stops.. Total ~3.5" lift, with rake.

Wheels/Tires: Stock Steel and Firestone Destination A/T 31X10.5X15

Other Notable Modifications: Rear disc brakes, cowl intake, lots of little things to fit my personality, the front bumper from AJ's is the most visible.

Favorite Modification: I probably enjoy the good radio, amp and speakers the most, but stroking the motor is definitely my favorite. I guess chopping the seat brackets down for head room has to be up there pretty high.

Least Favorite Modification: The cowl intake is a love hate. Cool factor is there, but the jeep doesn't exactly need more cabin noise.

Best Trail Damage: Bent the drip rail on a tree that kept me from rolling down a hill. A reminder that we all do stupid things, and to be careful.

Build Thread: My '01 Build, "Dee" the Patriot Blue XJ

Optional: Nothing crazy on the story side, I bought her when I was 17, my third vehicle but my first love. Lots of good and bad since then, but never stopped loving her. When the head finally cracked this year I was left with a tough decision to fix it quick with just a new head or take the time and do it right and full rebuild with a stroker kit. The latter being financially more burdensome and a much longer process because of it. I chose the long route, the right route. There wasn't a day that went by that it was out of commission that I felt bad and wanted my baby back. I slept like a baby when she was finally back on the road again. My jeep is a part of me. Not perfect, not showy, not even that nice, but I'm not sure I would want it any other way.
