1997 Wrangler TJ - $5k Wrangler Rebuilt - October 2016 Sweeps Winner

Joey’s Sweepstakes Story

Joey picked up his 1997 TJ in 2011 when he was just a junior in high school. His white TJ was given the fitting name of Casper. Unfortunately, Casper spent the past 3 years in a garage until Joey got the call saying he was the lucky winner of our $5,000 to Rebuild Your Rig sweepstakes. Getting Casper trail ready again was no easy task, but now it’s back in action!   

The Build

Casper was stuck in the garage due to an exploded set of gears, rust issues, and a front driveshaft that was M.I.A. However, the $5,000 took care of all of that and then some! Joey decided to go with a set of 4.56 gears, front and rear differentials, and chromoly axles to get Casper moving again. Then on the exterior Joey got everything from a set of new tires to some new armor from front to back. 

Life After the Build

It would be an understatement to say that Joey is happy with the way his build turned out. Joey is a die-hard Jeep enthusiast, so much that even his dog is named Wrangler! Getting Joey’s rig back up and running again, re-ignited the fire and now Joey is back to hitting the trails!
