Soldiers Vandalized Jeep...

I can't find the thread so I'll just post up a new one.

You guys remember this?

Back in September of '08, Dan Dubose of Blue Torch Fab in Birmingham, AL, received a Private Message on Pirate4x4.com's forums about Viktor Whitlow, a young Army Reserve Veteran who had his Jeep vandalized in the parking lot of his college campus. The vandals broke into his Jeep TJ, destroyed the interior and cut up the seats, slashed the tires, spray painted all over it, including painting "Soldiers are Murderers" on the hood.



Here it is today.



Here's a link to the story:

WOW!! That is sooo cool those companies were willing to volunteer the time and parts to help him out. My hat is off.

I love that cage too. Very nice work.

That is really sweet looking. I am glad that there are still people out there that support the American soldier. Little do the people that don't support us know, but our soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines die everyday so that they have the right to bash on us. Thank God for those that serve and keep us free.

Yes I saw that. Too bad Jesse wasn't there even though she's not on the show anymore.

Supposedly Extreme4x4 was going to do a show about the event, but I haven't seen anything about it. They were filming.

What kind of fenders are on the front of that TJ now?

I heard BTF was going to be marketing that cage too.

That's amazing. It kills me the things that some people do. But it's good that there are others who will take care if it in the end.
