When you find a great 4x4 shop, you stick with it. You stop by to pick the staff's ears about new parts, talk about your dream setup for your rig, get the scoop on upcoming events, and chat about whatever and whoever else walks/drives in the door. That's what Brian Nash found in Tri-County Gear of Pomona, California, the first time he stopped in with his new-to-him 1986 Jeep CJ-7.
Since Tri-County Gear completed the buildup of Brian's CJ-7, he has continued to 'wheel with Jason and the rest of the Tri-County Gear family of installers, technicians, fabricators, and customers ever since. He even joined the Tri-County Gear team as an employee. His first task was to create a new website and e-storefront to help the shop extend its customer base and share its many years of knowledge of building and 'wheeling 4x4s. We could go on for pages about Brian's CJ, but we'll let the photos do the talking. It's a wellconstructed rig built with high-quality parts and it works great. We like it.
