What were some challenges and successes?
Since I am in college, I dont have a steady source of income which has made it challenging because I cant get everything I would like to get right now. Luckily my sponsors have been able to help me out with product or negotiating prices to make it easier on me.
What can your ride do now that it couldn’t do before?
With my Optima batteries I can now easily power all accessories on here including lights, sound system, train horns, winch, etc. With my train horns I now have the ability to scare people out of my way if they are in my way. and the parts that I have for off-road capability have enabled me to go a lot further off-road than with a stock Jeep.
