They showed it on a episode of dirt every day finished and I think after the race was over. Looked pretty good.

To say things got hectic towards the end of this build would be an understatement! We got it done in time to compete in the Rebelle, and Courtney came back the following year in it (2018) and finished top 10. Between 2017 and 2018 it got several more upgrades including Vintage Air A/C, ARB air lockers and lots of other goodies. Even we were impressed with how it handled, easily going 80mph one handed down the freeway.



















It got featured in several magazines, including Peterson's. Then we drove it 1,200 miles to Overland Expo West in Flagstaff and got rear ended on the drive home by someone that fell asleep with their cruise control on. Everyone was okay (the other car was totaled but we sustained only minor body damage and a shredded tire. We ended up finding a great buyer for it who uses it as his daily driver, tow rig and off-road vehicle. We are extremely grateful for all of the companies who believed in us and came on board for the build. This Jeep had ZERO mechanical issues during both Rebelle Rally's, which speaks to how incredible the components from these manufacturers are.



We had so much fun that we have decided to build another Wagoneer. Stay tuned for a link to the build thread!

Interesting tire carrier. Looks like you built a frame and sandwiched in between the truck frame and bumper. On the front, did you have to cut the inner fenders for the coilovers? Nice looking rig!

Thanks! To do the tire carrier we reinforced the factory bumper and then welded a spindle and latch into it. We did have to remove enough inner fender to fit the coilover tower.

I have been waiting to see how this story ended for a while now...

Any chance you have pics of the interior after you got the cage and headliner installed? I liked the way you set up the cage, but wanted to see how it set with the headliner.

Did you use interlock joints to allow cage to be dropped/removed or weld in once you were done with the prep? So many details left unanswered on what looks to have been quite an impressive build!

Glad no one was hurt in accident, and that you all had fun with an awesome rig built for real use.
