What do you know? You've seen it before, know the previous owner?

It was built by "The Shop" in Bremen IN
It helped them win the National Off-Road Shop Team Challenge

I only saw one pic of it in those albums. And it was sitting at the starting line for the mud pit. I take it that a "shop" takes a team of vehicles and the highest cumulative score wins?

John, from what I see in the pics and the suspension when it came in. I would guess not very good due to the high stance, high anti-squat and little downtravel. But we'll fix all that. Get up here with that Atlas and all the other stuff, I have to get that in there so I can build a crossmember to bolt the lowers to. Looks like your bro might have to run a two piece front d shaft, would have helped if he mounted the motor higher.

Been a hellar night in the shop, finished the cage and got it all welded. Then cut the TJ in half so it can go in for scrap and loaded it on a trailer with my buddy. Way heavier than expected, lol.

Your bro said it would be a ton of work to move the motor up, I haven't looked closely at it. Guess he's got some new Mastercraft seats he's picking up Friday too. I'm going to hold off on the link suspension until we get the Atlas in. So I'm going to start mounting the winch and propane tank with the anti-rock in mind. And leave room for the shocks when you get your ass up here.

Oh, scrap isn't going for diddley, but I don't care. I have gotten a bunch of money out of that TJ, and I wanted another bay open. Shea just called me and told me I'm $28 richer, what was left of the TJ weighed 1100 #'s.
