Ride of the Month November '13 - Submission time

Ride of the Month - November '13 Submission Thread
Ride of the month submission time!
Per the new format change announcement:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=87432

I'm looking for the best picture for November's ROTM!
This month's theme is: Rocks! Again!
We got a lot of interest last month for the theme, and I'm sure we'll get some more.
here's a random picture off the Interwebz to illustrate the point.







But, don't hold back - be creative, take a great picture that has your jeep on the rocks in it somehow and post it up to enter! I'll close the submission thread on Sunday November 24th and set up the voting. Sorry, but one entrant per person, please.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
We’re looking for the best member’s pictures for that month. The winning picture will have the place of honor on the JKOwners Facebook page. We’ve eliminated the multiple classes. There is only one. We don’t care what’s on the Jeep (or how much $ they’ve spent or sweat they’ve put into it).
The criteria will be simple. Each month we’ll have a theme unannounced until entry time. Entrants will post up their submitted picture for ROTM. We anticipate quite a few submissions each month. We’ll run an initial vote to narrow the field a bit kind of like a semifinals. Highest vote counts continue on to the finals. Finals would consist of 5-10 entrants max on a vote and we’ll see which one wins (10 is option limit on poll so if the contestant numbers are still high we'll go with 10).


It would be helpful to the entrant by having a little caption of where the shot was taken. Another thing to consider would be to make it a higher quality picture (cell phone pics suck).

What are you voting on? The overall picture and how well it relates to the theme of the month, picture quality, uniqueness of the shot, how well the jeep is framed in the foreground or beauty of the background. Which of the pictures posted by the entrants just 'makes it for you' as the symbol of our group on the Facebook home page. There are a lot of factors but we wanted to allow you guys to determine the best picture of the month.

I really don't want to make a huge list of rules that sort this out, but as they are generated, I'll update this post with whatever rules need to be imposed.
Rules:
1. Picture must be of the entrant's jeep.
2. Picture must comply with the theme of the month. Those that don't comply will be disqualified.
3. Winners in the calendar year are disqualified from entering again in the same calendar year. We'd like to spread the wins out, which I'm sure you'll understand.
4. One submission post of one picture only per month please.

I hope you guys have a lot of fun with this new format.
Cheers.

"Firehole" obstacle, Woodpecker Trail, Florence Arizona on the way to "Highway to Hell". This weekend! Pucker factor maybe 7-8. Our stock 44 wheelbase is just able to catch both sides and these rocks are slippery. Sadly, this trail has been ruined since the last time we ran it. A mine claim has moved in and taken it over, more or less making it a super highway leaving only a couple obstacles remaining

Might as well toss a pic into the running... even though it's not gonna matter. We seriously need some rocks on the East Coast.



More Rausch Creek. Another angle of Yellow Jacket.

Yep, I love that spot, too. I can get guys through on 33's, but even on 41's it still takes some thought.

This was right after I flopped it on its side with the rear quarter panel taking the hit and catching on the rock shown under the passenger rear tire.

That looks like the spot where I nearly rolled the Commander when I had it out there. Was that near the end?

Sure was. That ledge came out of nowhere and caused some sketchy moments for me and one other. It looked a lot easier then it actually was.

Holy hell. That's me!

Complete bullshit that they photoshopped the RUBICON decal off the hood so they could use this pic in their "You don't need a rubicon" article..

Lots of changes since then.
