    Edit: 8/15/2015 - Winners announced here!

    ENTRIES

    * We want: tutorials, modifications, and helpful guides for 4Runner owners

    * If you have a good modification you can detail in a thread that you know other 4R owners would be interested in, we want to see it on here. Pictures in the write-up are highly recommended.

    * The write-up must be in your own words and the pictures must belong to you. You may re-write a tutorial found elsewhere on the Internet, but you may not copy it word-for-word. And you can't use pictures that don't belong to you, or it won't qualify.

    * Write-ups must be of a different subject than existing write-ups already on the site at the time of posting.


    * Contest open to new and existing members of 4Runners.com

    * Post your write-up thread in the appropriate subforum of the site

    A few examples of good write-ups: wheel bearing assembly, radiator replacement, HID installation


    THE TWIST: "INVITE ENTRIES"

    "Invite entries": See a good tutorial on another site with great pics, written by someone else? Invite that person on 4Runners.com and have them re-create their thread on here. If they mention you in their thread (i.e. "thanks to *your username* for inviting me on") and they win, you will also win the same prize as they do for that thread.

    WINNER SELECTION

    * We will measure the write-ups by how many unique visitors view those threads, taking into consideration how long the thread has been posted so late entries are measured fairly against early entries.

    * The same member may win more than once

    * Ending date for entries is July 31, 2015. Winners will be chosen August 15, 2015.


    PRIZES

    [​IMG]

    upload_2015-5-29_22-23-57.jpg

    * The two (2) most visited write-ups will each win a $200 gift card to 4 Wheel Parts or Amazon.com (winner's choice)

    * The third, fourth and fifth most visited write-ups will each win $50 gift cards to 4 Wheel Parts or Amazon.com (winner's choice)



    Small print: All winners will be selected at the discretion of the staff. Only members of 4Runners.com may win.

    We can move the goal posts, that's not a problem. Also instead of only 3 second place winners, I think I'm going to increase the number since these write ups are really good quality.

    A couple of your write-ups have been linked to from other forums, which has increased the view count on them, and therefore better chance of the big prizes.

    Feel free to link them from other automotive sites you visit, without actually spamming them (over linking, or dropping a link without context).
