Look Back to 2017

Off-Road on the Trails

Wow! 2017 was amazing year with some really awesome adventures. It was also a year of growth for me! I became a stronger person by fighting thru my fear of heights, learning change can be good, stepping out of my comfort zone, and meeting more cool new Jeepers.

I will never forget my solo trip to Moab, Utah. The landscape was breathtaking. The city was so fun! And the trails... I wish there was more time to see them all. Maybe one day. During this trip I was lucky enough to meet up with Charlene Bower. She guided me up the Hell's Revenge hill and helped me discover my new motto #IGotThis!

In 2017, I discovered a new company call Under The Sun Inserts during one of the Jeep Talk Shop Podcast episodes. Joe, one of the owners, suggested I try his grille insert on my Jeep.

I was very hesitant to do away with my purple grille inserts. Changing my unique Jeep was hard, but I bit the bullet, and made the change. Once that purple flag was inserted, I was so happy with it. It was a good reminder that change is good. Change is growth.

It was a year of some serious modifications with the Tom Woods front driveshaft.

Also a once in a life time opportunity to tour the Wrangler Assembly Line at the Toledo Jeep Plant. I was most likely the last "civilian" to see the JK Wrangler on the assembly line as the new JL has come out.

While in the plant ,I was able to get a sneak peak at the Unwrapped new JL. Not many "regular joes" got that opportunity. Plus I grabbed an up close and personal look at the wrapped JL Wrangler.

It was also my first time at a Jeep Show. Stepping out of my comfort zone and going by myself.
