100% SPONSORED SEMA JK
Well, I sold it. Lost my ass, but made a family very happy. I almost cry when I think about it!!!
This is just a teaser pics from TDS while I was geting totally twisted!
This first page is all about crediting my sponsors...
Who would have ever thought that by the immense generosity of all my sponsors, i would end up with a $100K+ Jeep?! God Bless all of them!!
I am anxious to get pictures of all 108 sponsored products uploaded, but I have alot of traveling right now. Hopefully, sometime in May I can finish this.
It is very important to me that viewers understand that I do not accept sponsorships from just any company that comes my way. Each and every one of these companies were handpicked. In fact, I denied a few due to not supplying product by SEMA as promissed, or the products was not as it was promoted to be. Everybody below is beyond awesome! Great people, great products, great support. I appreciate all of them immensely...
This project would not be possible without continuing support from all of my sponsors! A huge thanx to all of them!! This first section is to expose each sponsor and provide you with a link to their with their websites... Modifications that have been made without sponsorship will not be featured in this section.

NOTHING CRAZY - The story behind project...
I have dreamed of having a Jeep since I was a boy. In my mind, it was the ultimate "Man Vehicle". For some stupid reason, I never got one. In fact, it wasn't until I was 31 that I got my first 4x4. But it was no Jeep! I have been building custom vehicles for over 2 decades. I have owned several minitrucks which were always my favorite. When my Dakote show truck was lifted, I got "the bug" in a big way to stay high off the ground. When I saw the first unlimited Jeeps, I liked the longer wheelbase, but it wasn't until the release of the 4-door in 2007 that I got insanely excited. I had to have one! As I was still building my Mopar truck, I asked Jeep to special order one for me with the Sunburst Orange Pearl color that I had seen on other Mopar vehicles. They declined. At SEMA 2008, sure enough, in the Jeep booth stood a badass JK, in the color I wanted, already lifted, sporting the 1/2 doors and beadlock wheels. I needed a towel! In April of 2009 I went to Germany for the Electronics show, as usual. Before I went, I tasked 2 dealers to find me a JK with 4 doors, manual tranny and in that orange color, but otherwise stripped since I wanted to build it myself. As us custom builder guys always say - real rides are built, not bought! When I got back from Germany, my Jeep dealer had 2 orange JKs waiting for me. A soft top with a auto tranny and a hard top with a manual tranny. I chose the later and have been stoked to drive it everyday on my 1.5-2 hours commute each way to work! I used to hit a dirt trail almost every day and drive it hard on the weekends when I lived iont he high desert! I finally have my dream vehicle. The next dream is to take the wife to Moam, Utah and eventually the Rubicon Trail, but my JK has a long way to go... So, please come back, give me criticism, say hi, invite us for a ride, or just watch as the Jeep advances with more sponsors.
Now that I moved down to the beach, I want to be able to have the top off more often. My buddy Challen had the dual top but cannot fit the top down with his kids in the car with strollers and stuff so he gave me his new soft top. Now THAT is a badass friend!!!
JUNE 12 - Holy crap! This thing is out of control. 39 sponsors and 71 sponsored products. Over $40k in blessings! I am actually running out of things that I want. For the first time in my life, I might actually have a vehicle that is 100% done with nothing else I can do to it... :^)
NOVEMBER 15 - Whew! SEMA is over and I am the proud owner of a $100k+ Badass Jeep! I told my wife before I got it, "No worries babe, Nothing Crazy, just a little lift kit, some wheels and tires, and a basic stereo system." Yeah, right! I am thinking I should get custom license plates that say NTHN CRZ or NUTN CRZ. I like the first one better. What do you think? Let me know!
December 5 - My apologies for not having all my pics up yet. I promise to have pics of each and every 90+ mods on here asap. With the finalizing of all my new audio products at work for 2012 I am insanely busy. Couple that with family and holidays and I am half way in the grave already. BUT, I will get the pics asap. Hopefully this weekend, we will have some clear weather and I will have some time...
OK, it is February 27th and I am almost done with preparing for TDS (Tierra Del Sol 50th Anniversary Event). Just need to get an alignment. Took it to 4Wheel Parts when I put the 40s on it before SEMA. If they did anything, they made it worse. I got a death wobble 1/4 mile out of their driveway, exactly the reason I took it to them in the first place. I called and, of course, they tried to sell me a part to resolve the problem. I looked upa DIY article on Toe-in and Castor and did it myself. It is not perfect, but it works perfect until I can find a worth place locally to get it done. Anyway, here is how it looks for TDS...
Well, it's April 25th and I am going to Brazil and Colombia for 12 days starting tomorrow. But when I get back, I will be dedicated to finally taking pics of all the mods and rebuilding the second page of this website. Once I finish that, I will focus on my new system that I am putting in and add that to the 3rd page which is very outdated at this point. So many things to do! Thanx for checking out the jeep and stop by frequently for new updates...
