Rich Abby knows how to talk the talk and walk the rock, and it's all thanks to location, location, location. Rich lives in Salt Lake City-a mere five hours from Moab. So by having the most famous slickrock this side of sediment as his neighbor, Rich's after-hours activities are no doubt rockin'. Utah is also the state Shawn Sorensen calls home. The connection? It's the how-come-he-gets-to- have-all-the-fun-in-his-CJ-7 motivation that led Rich to build this Ford. Well, that and his wife Katie wanting to keep their daily-driven Toyota intact.
The bummer of it all is that shortly after Rich bought the Bronco, Shawn sold his Jeep. But he put his firsthand experimenting to work and lent a hand to help Rich make a mighty machine for clawing Moab and other local Utah runs along the Wasatch Front.
