Tread Lightly Partners Up On Jeep Give-A-Way
Enter the Tread Lightly Jeep Giveaway. Your favorite land conservation and trail etiquette company has done it again. Tread Lightly has teamed up with MischiefMakerTV and HCF Motorsports to build a custom 2021 JLU trail rig. Now that it’s built the plan is to go ahead and give it away to a lucky Tread Lightly member. You could be that lucky member!
The Tread Lightly Jeep Turned Out Awesome
The Jeep started as an everyday Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Since then it has been converted to a 2 seat Jeep buggy. This ride comes with one-ton axles, 42-inch sticky tires, a custom roll cage, and some of the best aftermarket parts the off-road industry has to offer. A full build series for the Jeep can be found on MischiefMakerTV. If you are familiar with the channel then you definitely know that it’s worth a watch.
It looks like a bunch of other off-road personalities and influencers had a hand in this awesome project as well!
Here is a video of the completed Give-A-Way Jeep in action at Easter Jeep Safari 2022 taking on Hell’s Revenge.
