I agree, the build should be listed, but as info to let you know what the owner has done to it.

Looks in my opinion does play a big part of any contest, especially when all makes and models are in the mix as in this forum. I'll take a stock or slightly modified good looking Jeep over a built POS looking one with dents, missing bumpers and without doors etc, etc any day. Also, I give points to a Jeep (even if it's stock) if it is presented in a way that shows it actually sees trail duty. Case in point... my stock height KJ with full skids and Toyo A/T tires. I think it looks good and with careful driving and good spotting, it has seem it's share of medium rated trails in Arizona, Utah and Colorado. I've even had the KJ on the infamous difficult rated Black Bear Pass above Telluride, CO.

Like they say, "different strokes for different folks". That's why it's a contest.....

It's a Jeep thing, not just one model.

I do agree that most contests do pivot on the looks, but a Quadratec Special could look really good yet be completely haggard underneath.

LOL... at least you don't see the haggard underside unless the driver lays it on it's side or raises the front end way up high towards the heavens....

I think the minimum post count was to keep people from voting more than once, it's easy to sign up for more than one account or get all your friends to sign up just to vote for you, this has happened before on other forums.
