This year Quadratec decided to do something unique! Having been in business for 30 years, they enlisted the help of Modern Jeeper and friend Greg Henderson of Unofficial Use Only for help in creating this creative combination.

Quadratec’s boss and founder Ted Wentz once owned a ’89 YJ Sahara and was moved to rebody a new Sahara JL in its honor.

There’s a custom front-end conversion with a ‘period correct’ rear bumper, tubular doors with ‘side armor guards’ (the latter paint matched to the car), and new arches built from 11-gauge aluminium.

The modifications are much more than superficial. There’s a long-arm suspension lift kit and Falcon shock absorbers, providing 3.5 inches of lift which allows for the 37in Baja-spec tires on retro wheels fashioned by Quadratec itself, while underneath, deep inside the oily bits, there are custom driveshafts.

 

We think it looks awesome! And you never know but Greg just might make that YJL grill conversion for sale!

After 23 years of corporate life, I decided to pursue my passions in the off road industry. Specializing in marketing, visibility, relationship and brand building, and acting as MetalCloak's field marketing representative, I have travelled across the country (quite a few times!) using Metalcloak’s CTI (Corner Travel Index) to educate the off road enthusiast. I have also worked with Jeep Jamboree USA as event staff, to provide additional value and education to its participants. I've been fortunate enough to work with both international as well as domestic media; have attended most of the off-road events across our country; and have driven a wide variety of vehicles. I'm a certified PADI scuba instructor and have a BS in Computer Science.
