Story:

Built daily driver, rock crawler, race rig, show vehicle. I have had more fun trying to make this a truly "do-all" rig than I ever could have imagined. This jeep is driven around town every single day. But is built and absolutely abused on the rocks nearly every other weekend, then to top it off we are now offroad endurance racing it! All to be sanded, painted, and waxed after each trip to be ready to show on Sundays.

My wife and I run between 20 and 25 trails per year with most of them being private rock parks in the South. However, since changing the direction of the build to handle more high speed challenges, we have now added racing to it's menu. In 2011 we ended up with around 22 offroad trail runs and 2 races (4th and 5th place finishes). It has now been to trails and rock parks in 7 states (AL, CO, UT, NC, SC, KY, TN) with plans of adding several new states to that list next year.

Each trip we evaluate how the jeep performed and how it could be better, then my wife helps me decide on the specific mods that would get us over that obstacle or around the race course faster the next time around. I couldn't be happier with how the TJ is turning out. It will drive 75 mph on the street or the offroad track and after a loooong day of getting beat on, is still a comfortable rig to run out to the grocery store in.
