Everyman Challenge: Poor Boy Racing
 
Have you ever wondered what goes into building a "race car?" More specifically, a rig built to handle the trails in Johnson Valley. My friends and I have taken on the task of building a Cherokee to race in the Everyman Challenge out at King of the Hammers in February 2014. Follow Poor Boy Racing and "like" us on Facebook to see what we are doing! As the name shows, we are just a few college guys with limited funds. We hope that our project will inspire others to take on things that they didn't believe was within reach...

Thanks bud. We dont feel like we are making much progress since we are doing lots of petty stuff right now. We just started putting in the unibody stiffeners. Next up suspension and axles. Once we get it setting back on its own weight I thinkit will feel like more progress was made

Thanks for the support :thumb:

We still have a few shirts if you are interested ;)

Duckquackers 07-18-2013 02:58 PM

Yes sir I am and I will also sport it around base... You think it can double as a chick magnet? Also, I need size double fat or massive petite..

Cons_Table 07-18-2013 04:07 PM

PM sent sir!

First Item of business:

We are down to 1 medium shirt, and 3 large shirts! Anyone else interested in any of these sizes? Also, in the next month or two registration opens up so we will have a number by then! This is when we will be looking at making a second batch of shirts with our team number! Rather than making ones identical to the current ones we would like suggestions on what our followers like. We are looking for color schemes, types, etc. Here are the suggestions we've had so far:

-Women's shirts. These would have a women's cut, and may also involve more feminine colors.
-Tank tops. These would probably be more gender neutral to appeal to both male and females.

So let us know what you would like to see with the shirts!

SECONDLY,

I know this is Wranglerforum and we are in a Cherokee, but would anyone be interested in a build thread here? I have had a few requests from multiple people...what say you?

GoldenSahara00 07-22-2013 03:53 PM

Yes build thread. It's close enough.
