Tinker Toy

A 2012 Jeep Wrangler Jk build by @tinkertoyjeepadventures/

Owners, Designers, and Builders - Nathan & Tammy R. This is not some shop built, show Jeep that the owner/driver knows nothing about. Tinker Toy Jeep was built by us, in our front yard, mostly in the dark. We know what is equipped on the Jeep, why we chose those parts, the joys of the install, the durability, and where those parts excel. Whether we are shined up at a show or getting dirty on the rocks, most of our fun really comes from the spectators. We always try to stick close to the Jeep because we love to answer the questions, give our personal reviews, and, when available, give face-to-face demonstration of what our parts are good for. If you see us out there, don't be afraid to stop by and chat. Can't wait to meet ya
