Dumpster Dive TJ

A 1997 Jeep Wrangler Tj build by @highbeamoffroad

Dumpster Dive TJ - a custom truck build by John Hendrix/FloBuiltConversions that was later sold to the current owner Matt Loxley of High Beam Offroad. Built from junkyard parts and quality parts, this initial budget build has been wheeling across the country. At Easter Jeep Safari 2018, "Dumpy" was rolled on Pritchett Canyon's "Rockpile" obstacle and is waiting to be rebuilt!
