That's NAXJA member Brett Worthel on the right, wearing the stylish Four Wheeler cap. Late Saturday afternoon we found him in the campground swapping a new axle into his XJ. Worthel was born deaf, but has overcome that obstacle in a big way. He's an active wheeler and is going to tech school. His dad told us that he routinely wrenches on his own vehicles and can often tell when something is wrong with the rig on the trail by monitoring vibrations.
