I thought so. Hog Wild is looking more and more like a TOP SHELF jeep. How many other Jeeps were entered in the off road class? Did you get any pics of them to compare Hog Wild against in a picture line up?

Hello, there where no other Jeeps entrered, all the rest where chevy trucks ans SUVs, to be honest I thought Id not win since the show was basically all chevys and at a chevy dealership, I was quite surprised when I won the class.

That says a lot when a Jeep takes 1ST place over a bunch of Chevy Trucks at a Chevy truck dealer!!

At what point will you find a fabricator and begin fabricating your own ideas? If you want unique, you have to fab your own stuff, or at least design it and have it fabbed. Catalogs don't make unique ideas. Your sound system is a perfect example. The combination of custom enclosure, monitors and parts make it truly unique. My advice is to build something no one else has. When your list of catalog parts is longer than your OEM parts, it will get lost in the mix in a proper car show.

The grab bar and fairlead are almost ready, this is a cad design. The final products will both be candy red with machined lettering

I was contacted by a guy a know from the car show scene that does movies. He asked if Id be interested in the Jeep being used in a movie as it fit the look of what they where looking for. The movie has some pretty famous people in it and was supposed to start filming in April here in Phoenix. Last Ive heard they still want to use the Jeep but other than that I dont know really what’s going on. Heres the poster for the movie, I really hope it materalizes as would be great.

37s or 40s on a 4-5 inch lift. Profit.

If that Solstice is a GXP, trust me, you need the Trifecta tune.
Made my wife's rollerskate almost as fun to drive as my Viper.

Great stuff, you just keep on winning awards. Quite right too with all the work you’ve put in.

I’m slightly confused on this one. Is the Jeep an import?

Thanks for your reply. Jeep is American but the show was called Hot Import Nights, it has classes for both domestic and import cars. Hot Import Nights travels the world throwing car shows in various countries, theres also a modeling competition, DJ competition etc that are part of the show.

Thank you, my friend Chavos pinstriping did the candy leafing, silver leafing and pinstriping. He mostly does lowrider style cars and I think mine was the first Jeep hed striped. I was worried how it would look when I first was having it done but am glad I did it now.

Same guy makes gas caps to, the grills and gas caps are custom painted. They gas caps are 60 and the grills like 350-400. Not bad if consider the time and artistry that goes into them.

Im thinking to get a airbrush artist to airbush my gladiator grill and gas cap door. I cant decide about the grill though as thinking also to get a real handmade carbon fiber grill in oem seven slot style
