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!
