    I am thinking of starting a simple contest for writing Technical Articles. Those that enter an article will get full credit regardless, but the best article, as voted by the members here via poll, will win 2 years of Platinum Member status. The second place winner will get 1 year of Platinum Member status.

    All contributors who enter a thread that I find are "Tech" worthy will have their article added to the Tech area and will get "Content Writer" status under their username with the potential for fame and glory! [​IMG]

    So what are the rules?
    1. Registered users only
    2. Related to offroading (vehicle repair, upgrades, mods, fabrication)
    3. Minimum of five (5) pictures of the process/steps
    4. Recommended: List of tools, materials and time required
    5. Enter as many separate threads as you like. However, they must be your content and must be new threads (even if based on an old thread of yours) in an "article" format.
    How do I enter?
    1. Start a new thread and include "Tech Contest" in your subject
    2. Send me a PM with a link to your post
    3. Be sure to attach your images to the thread
    What is the timeline?
    1. Threads posted by March 21th 2012, that gives you 2 weekends to work on something new or find and improve an old post of yours plus some time to do the write-up.
    2. Polling will run 5 days and the winner will be announced Saturday March 26th.
    3. All articles will be posted by March 30th


    Interested? Well get started!!!!!

    I may do this again in the summer. Depends on the turnout this time. Also, it does not have to be directly related to your truck.

    If you can fabricate stuff, enter that type of article. How to weld, proper use of a drill press in various situations, etc. All things from in your garage.

    RE: Article contest, win Platinum Status

    only 5 more days....hmmm, what else can I put together quick? Finishing up a V10 homemade exhaust kit, tearing apart some D80s, not much else on the plate right now. Rebuilding some leaf springs, but parts aren't here yet. I will be doing a write-up on installing a GM Governor Solenoid conversion for the 518/618, but pan and parts won't be hear until next week.

    :dunno::dunno::dunno:

    Maybe extend the contest???? Or just announce me the winner! :angel: :cheers:

    If I didn't own the site, I could have taken pics of the safari rack I just modified/installed on my neighbor's Jeep and entered that! Not sure it is tech worthy anyway since its just some cut-n-weld stuff on his existing Smittybilt tire carrier and the rack and its frame was already made. Just had to fit and cut the verticals and weld the basket on. plus make a hi-lift mount. He wants a gas can holder next

    sorry man. left town, bad weather now, trying to setup a trade on some parts, etc etc. It's hard to find time it seems. I WILL be putting some more stuff up again here soon and will be starting a more hardcore buildup on the Black Ram since the White Ram is almost....almost done. Then I y will finally have some time where that truck can be down for at least a few days at a time to have some fun.
