Tinker Toy

A 2012 Jeep Wrangler Jk build by @tinkertoyjeepadventures/

Owners, Designers, and Builders - Nathan & Tammy R. We're both long-time automotive enthusiasts. While we do like to take the Jeep out wheeling every now and then to stretch its legs, our primary passion is in the car show scene talking with folks about parts, tricks, and secrets. This interest sticks to us outside of shows as well. Seems like we haven't been to a single meet to which we weren't promoting our parts. If you see us at an event, feel free to stop by and chat. It's what we enjoy
