2005 Jeep CJ7
Audio & Electronics
The brainchild of Detroit Locker rep Scott Frary. This vehicle was designed to take on virtually any trail, anywhere.
At first glance, this vehicle has all the appearances of a flatfender with an aluminum tub. The longer you gaze at it, though, the more you come to realize that this rig is completely custom from front to back. In fact, the only actual stock part on it is the ‘45 MB nine-slot grille. Everything else came via the aftermarket and impeccable craftsmanship of the boys at Advanced Frame Works in Montana. Jared Prindle, owner of AFW, undertook the project and ensured that every detail was correct. The results speak for themselves.
Because this Jeep was to make its debut at the SEMA convention, the time constraints were tight, and both Scott and Jared were under a lot of pressure to get everything done. Between parts not showing up on time, some items not fitting correctly, and the vehicle actually getting lost for a few days in the backwoods of New Mexico (ask Scott), it was a challenging three months.
Having spent a day in the California desert watching Scott take this rig through its paces, we can honestly say that the effort was well worth it. This is a great little vehicle and a lot of fun to drive.
