Not too long ago they were the predominant trail rig. However, over last few years it seems like many of the TJs have been replaced by JKs! Longtime Jeep enthusiast Chuck Kirkton bought his first Jeep, a CJ-3A, when he was a 17. Since then he has owned and wheeled 11 Jeeps-including a bevy of CJs, an XJ, a CJ-5, a CJ-7, and a couple of Grand Cherokees-and one oddball International Scout. To date, this Hemi-powered '04 Wrangler TJ is his favorite. The TJ fits his Jeeping lifestyle to a T for performance and off-road capability and was built by T&T Customs in Cheyenne, Wyoming. We found Chuck four-wheeling his favorite new Jeep on the trail in Moab. Since then he has hit a number of Southern California's high-desert trails with plans of taking his Hemi-powered TJ to the Rubicon Trial for his next big adventure.
