What do you like most about your rig?
Satin/matte paint protection film (PPF) with gloss black PPF creates a rugged, aggressive style that also has utility in protecting the vehicle on the trail.
On your average weekend adventure, what is the gear set up you bring with you?Full fridge, basket of snacks, some fuel to cook, some camp chairs, a pair of Devos lanterns and some firewood (if the location allows fires). Basically everything else is already built into the rig and ready for use when needed. (Oh, and a toothbrush and deodorant!)
Any custom details?
The matte paint protection film and black paint protection film accents are as utilitarian as they are stylish. Not only does my vehicle have a unique look, but it is thoroughly protected from rock chips, brush pinstripes and other hazards that could damage the body.
Coolest place you’ve taken your rig to?
I've seen incredible places all along the western half of the USA and Mexico, but Death Valley has been one of the coolest and most varied landscapes I've seen in a single outing. It's surprising how much variety there is, from deserts to mountains, rock, volcanic soil, dry lake beds, hot springs and hills.
Any projects in the pipeline to get your rig even more adventure ready?
Biggest challenge in your build out?I was one of the first 6th Gen bronco owners, and it took a long time for companies to perfect their equipment for fitting to a new Bronco. Patience was the biggest challenge, and holding out for the best products, not just the first to market. Fortunately, I was able to help many of these companies bring their products to market sooner, and I'm grateful to every one of them who are now friends (in addition to being sponsors).
Tips for others looking to do the same to their vehicle?
Go out and use your rig. Let your own lifestyle and what you enjoy be your guide to improving your experience. You'll never be done upgrading, so just focus on what helps you enjoy - and stay in - the moments you have out in nature, whether that's a better night's sleep out in the wild, or the parts that helped get you there.
