Earlier this year when I spoke to John "Poky" Mcgee from Tennessee Off Road about helping out with our Trailfest raffle he informed me that he was planning a HUGE project and stepping up the bar to contribute towards our raffle. This is super important raffle because between our two annual events they are a huge contributor to the financial health of our Association. Well, anyhow after we talked through the details I realized he was absolutely right, and this would be a real challenge but an even more remarkable Prize for one lucky winner!
So, a lot has transpired since early May and the folks at Tennessee Off Road ( TOR ) are still absolutely committed the pulling off a first time ever Live Jeep - JK build to the owners; Ron and Rhonda Brewer of the Stones River Jeep Club. They are new to the sport and did not make it to Trailfest themselves last year, but while they didn't win the actual prize drawing they did manage to acquire it from the original winning ticket holder and so it all worked out.
The ultimate prize will be to have a slew of NEW parts installed on location LIVE under a pavilion by the team from Tennessee Off Road right there inside of Golden Mountain OHV Park through the weekend of Dixie Run 30. Come on by and see the progress first hand yourself. They will be turning wrenches and working through their riding time so when you do stop by be sure to say Thank You for such a killer contribution to our Association. From raising funding in our raffle, to bringing awareness and education of a Jeep build, to helping out a new wheeler and spouse get better acclimated to tackle the trails. This is a WIN WIN for everyone.
Thanks again Tennessee Off Road.

" We, Ron and Rhonda Brewer, bought our jeep ,“The Silver Bullet” 2/20/2016. I, Rhonda personally have never owned a Jeep until now. I have fallen in love with the “Jeep Life”. My Husband, Ron, has owned a few jeeps in his lifetime. Our Jeep is a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport (JKU); upon purchasing our jeep we were trying to decide what type of lift and tires to upgrade it with. We visited a longtime friend, John McGee of “Tennessee Off Roads”, to discuss what Modifications would be best for our JKU. At that time John was telling us about a raffle that was won at Trail Fest and the unforeseen circumstances that happened to the lucky winner of the raffle and that they wanted to sell the winning ticket. We happened to visit the “TOR” shop on the right day at the right time. We purchased the winnings from the Raffle winner and are excited to see “The Silver Bullet” transform into the best it can be.
We look forward to being able to do more moderate and up trail rides after all modifications have been complete. I currently use my jeep as my daily driver and I already see heads turn and I’m excited to see even more heads turn once all the modifications are completed at Dixie Run. I want to thank everyone in advance that has allowed/made this happen and that will be working on my Jeep come September."
