"I LOVE MY JEEP BECAUSE ... I built it. I bought it wrecked at a salvage yard when I was 17 and I spent my entire senior year rebuilding it. Last summer I attended my first off-road event with it — the Montana Divide Ride. I was the youngest competitor and the only female driver. Ruby is my other half. I love to wheel her up into the mountains with friends or park in the lake and cast a line right off the back."
