25k followers!!! All I have to say is “WOW!” When I started this profile a little more than 18 months ago I did it solely to have a place online to store pictures of my Jeep (my wife talked me into it). Then all of a sudden you great people started following and then more and more followed and I always knew how great the Jeep community was but I never thought I would be a part of something this big and this great. I’ve met so many great people, so many great companies, and had the opportunity to work with so many of you to give back to the children of St. Jude in September. In my opinion, this Jeep life we all live is made up of some of the greatest people on planet earth. I’m looking forward to meeting more of you in person and seeing where this road takes us. It’s been a great ride so far.
I wanted to take a quick minute to answer my top three questions I get asked daily. 1. How do I get sponsored. Answer: I have no idea, i’m not sponsored. My Jeep isn’t made up of all one company’s parts. I’ve tried to artfully put together the best of the best from each manufacturer’s offerings. I’ve been approached with sponsorships but I truly believe running all one company’s parts will take away from the design I have so I’ve turned them down. Relationships are where it’s at! Where do you get your parts? Answer: From whoever I can get them the cheapest. Jeep parts aren’t cheap, especially when you run the good stuff. Initially, I bought from Northridge 4x4. Now it’s all Rebel Offroad! Those guys are all great friends of mine and I love supporting my friends. 3. How do I grow my social media presence. Answer: it’s actually pretty easy. There is only one rule: pay attention to what people like, and then post more of that. Example: I get 5 DMs a day minimum asking me why I never post pictures of my Jeep offroad. Truth is, I do take it offroad (nothing stupid), but no one likes those pics so I don’t usually take or post many of them when I do. Pay attention to what people like and post more of that! Thank you all again for following this passion I have and I love answering your questions and learning about you great people! Happy weekend and God Bless
