Mike’s motto is, “It’s not what you buy it’s what you build” and he sure has built an amazingly capable truck!
Bob drives a 2013 Rubicon. He has been wheeling for about 10 years. Mostly in Colorado and Moab. Bob participates in the Moab Easter Jeep Safari pretty much every year, and encourages everyone to join him!

Jim Dixon was a member, and served as President and Vice President of the Santa Barbara 4WD Club for many years. His yellow bronco was a site to be seen (and heard!).
Jim was a good man who will be missed by many.
