Growing up Jeep

I’ll start things off by telling you a little bit about myself. My name is Brian Napier and I’m from a small town in Ky. I’m married, have 2 children, 3 dogs and 2 cats (the cats are the wife’s). I have done a lot of different things and have had several different jobs over the years. I was a mechanic fresh out of high school, I raced cars and motorcycles, I tried my hand at cage fighting, I like to hunt and fish, I went to work in the rock quarries, ended up working on the Ohio River system, then went back to being a mechanic. While on the river I worked my way up from being a deck hand to a captain. I earned my pilots license and eventually upgraded to my masters license. I drove the boats that push the barges up and down the river. I eventually decided the river wasn’t for me and went back to turning wrenches. That’s also when I decided I wanted to be my own boss and run my own company.
               

When I was 16 years old my dad gave me my first vehicle, a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ. It had a 4cyl engine, automatic transmission, 33” tires, 2” body lift, custom bumpers and a soft top. My dad and I use to take that jeep hog hunting while we lived in Hawaii. My dads buddy had an even bigger jeep, it was jacked up pretty high and on bigger tires. I remember sitting in those jeeps for hours upon hours waiting for the dogs to start barking so we could take off like wild men through the woods after them. Good times. My dads old  Jeep is what started my mild obsession I think, I’ve had Jeeps ever since. That’s why I do what I do, I want to share my jeeping experiences with everyone. I want to wheel with everyone I can and where ever I can. There’s always someone that’s wanting to get into wheeling or has questions about it. That’s what I want to accomplish here, I want people to share their experiences and ask questions. I want people to live on the edge and I want them to do it by living Jeep.
