Posted in Features on August 5, 2013

We featured Tim Wolford's TJ Unlimited in the November 2009 issue of 4WHEEL DRIVE & SPORT UTILITY MAGAZINE. Before the LJ, Tim owned this 2002 TJ Wrangler. Steve Bennion, owner of Rock-Slide Engineering (R-SE), 'wheeled with Tim, so when the TJ went up for sale, Steve snapped it up and went to work modifying it for his needs.

Steve built the TJ to tackle the places he likes to off-road, such as the Bear River Mountains, and Hurricane and Moab, Utah. The Jeep performs great in every hardcore destination it has visited. Check out the photos for the details.
