Featured Jeeper – John Rushing

Today’s featured Jeeper is an up and coming off-roader. Although still young, has been bitten by the Jeep love for a long time. Without further ado… allow me to turn this over to John Rushing, today’s Featured Jeeper.

Hi, I just turned 19, I have no kids and I work for the local Junior College as a Ag Tech. I am also going to school to become a machinist. I have a 2010 Wrangler Sport I just purchased July of this year. I don’t know of any real offroad trails here in Oklahoma but I love going down any dirt road after a good rain.

My favorite offroad quotes are “stuck is a state of mind” and “mudding: the only sport you need more then one ball to play.” If I could have any modification I would want to put a 6″ Skyjacker lift with Dana 60s. The only mods I’ve done are cosmetic. I put Wesstin Steps and an aluminum grab bar I made in my machine class on the passenger side.

My Jeep is my daily driver so I don’t think I’ll do any major modifications. I don’t belong to or know of any clubs really but not against joining one if one should come along. As far back as I can think I have always liked the looks of the Jeep either an original Willy’s or my JK. I really don’t have any stories, yet to share, however, I have just begun.

  1. 19 is a great age! I hardly remember it though. Age really doesn’t mean a lot when you’re behind the wheel of a Jeep. You’ll find that no matter how old you are, you’ll feel like a kid on his first solo drive. I wish I had discovered Jeeping earlier than I did, but I’m there now and not wasting any time on discovering new terrains and friends. You have the right idea about finding any dirt road after a rain. You have the right mindset and you’ll do all right.


  2. Being a machinist is sure to be a plus as a Jeep owner. Kids are great, but don’t be in too big of hurry to get started. They’re great, but they do complicate your life. Great looking Jeep and I’m sure that as you get older and more comfortable with it, you’ll have plenty of stories of your own to share. Don’t forget to come back and share some of them.
