Peak Sponsor (Level 2)
Welcome to the dedicated thread for all things AWEJT -- documenting the adventures it will take on over the course of the year. We’ll be sharing images, videos, and experiences from the trips we’ll be attending in ‘21. Feel free to visit often, stay as long as you’d like, ask any questions you may have, and share an image of your own rig!
Bit of backstory:
We built the AWEJT during the time leading up to the release of the AWE Exhaust Lines for the JT, JL, and JK. For an organization with a deep-rooted precision engineering background and die-hard love for performance, we had an immeasurable level of excitement to get the JT in to the dirt in proper form. Once development for the JT Exhaust Suite was finished, we moved on to the other areas of the truck that were in much need of attention.
We turned to various other radical brands such as ARB, Falken, Fuel, G2, Metal Cloak, Rigid, S&B Filters, sPOD, Superchips, DV8, and Warn to equip the JT with its remaining needs (full detailed list with links below).

Fast forward a couple of weeks and it’s time to take the JT out on its first adventure with its new figure (almost -- unfortunately all of our parts didn’t make it in time, but enough of them did). We decided to go to Rausch Creek in Pine Grove, PA to film the launch video for the exhaust line and to give the JT a proper shake down.
What a park, and to top it off, it had just snowed. Completely unplanned for, but completely welcomed. It made for an epic atmosphere for the launch video, and off we ripped with our friends from Busted Knuckle Garage.
Watch the video below (if ya haven’t already) and enjoy some images snapped that day when the camera wasn’t rolling.
Stay tuned for updates, feel free to ask myself or @Dave/AWE any questions.
