I used to be into sports cars then a buddy of mine purchased an older Toyota, and he started taking me on adventures. I was hooked! We got in trouble alot in that old thing lol. lots of good memories wheeling together. So I decided to purchase an off-road vehicle and build it myself with my own hands. I want my family to have some of the same experiences I had in the mountains to make new memories. The adventure is everything for me/wife and daughters !
