Jeeps we've Built

Some of the completed projects built here at Thunder Mountain Jeeps in Sedona.

It's fun for us to build and sometimes document the jeeps we work on. Whether it is just adding a lift, wheels, and tires, or a complete suspension overhaul. Here are a few of our favorites


Gru - trail runner

  • 2000 Jeep TJ Sport.

  • 4.0 engine

  • Advanced Adapters AX15 5-speed transmission

  • Ford 8.8 rear axle

  • D-30 HP front axle.

  • Custom Mid-arm 3 link front AND rear suspension. Nothing is off the shelf here.

  • custom tuned Fox Remote Reservoir shocks

  • Front and rear air lockers

  • Custom HID headlights w/ LED DRL's

  • Anti-Rock swaybar​

Gru is built as a RockCrawler. I started with a custom-designed 3 link suspension front and rear. It's very unique in the jeep world because it retains the rear track bar for stability and precision. It has 6" of up and down travel both front and rear. There is zero flex steer and ​drives amazing. It also pretty good a bombing down fire roads or doing 75 mph on I-17. The first thing people say when riding in this TJ is "Wow, this thing is smooth". Bad road manners and rough rides are NOT a jeep thing.
