The Ultimate Rigs of UA 2010

Sponsor
2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ
Sponsor: Overkill Engineering, official body armor
Driver: Gabe Gile
Co-driver: Travis Kirkman
On their first Ultimate Adventure, co-owner and president of Overkill Engineering, Gabe Gile, and co-driver Travis Kirkman got a late start due to technical difficulties, but they met up with the rest of us after a mad 3,000-mile dash across the country. The boys from Overkill made a great first impression on us with their four-wheeling skills, and because they had one of the few vehicles that sustained limited carnage and breakage.
