Tinker Toy

A 2012 Jeep Wrangler Jk build by @tinkertoyjeep/

Owners, Designers, and Builders - Tammy & Nathan R. Tinker Toy's newest identity is this. No Shop, No Garage, No Trailer, No claim to SEMA, and No awareness ribbon profiteering. Tinker Toy was built in our driveway, by us. This is not a shop build. Tinker Toy spends her life outdoors. My garage is way too small for her. Tinker Toy was built to be driven, not hauled. We don't even own a trailer or anything to pull one with. Tinker Toy is not claimed to be a SEMA build for free parts. And, Tinker Toy has never and will never use the ailments and hardships of others for profitable gain, like so many others
