The boys at Goonzquad are rebuilding a wrecked Gladiator Rubicon on their YouTube Channel. It was a Jeep in Marco Island, FL that slid sideways into a tree. Two episodes so far. Going to take a lot of work to get it straight.
These 2 guys live bout 25 miles from me never meet them but I watch their YouTube channel and all I got to say is these boys are good they have rebuilt a lot of stuff and they do the job right I can’t wait to see what they do to the gladiator I bet they lift it and other mods
I have watched all of their builds. They started with a Jeep JK Rubicon and have since rebuilt some great vehicles like an F150, Corvette Z06, Mustang GT, Camaro ZL1, GTR, 350Z, S2000, Huracan, F430, F-450, Challenger Hellcat, Carger Pursuit, Goblin...
These guys have drive and get some stuff done. I can't wait to see the results on this build!
I like their channel and have subscribed to it for quite some time. They have the naivety of youth but seem pretty eager to learn. Some of their early work is down right cringey but they are a good example of learning and moving on with their skill sets improving.
Their first bunch of rebuilds were pretty janky and definitely shade tree quality at best - chock it up to being young and inexperienced. I haven't followed their recent builds but I expect they got a lot better after learning a ton. I do love their enthusiasm though
The other thing about them, they still live at home with their mom and dad. How they value their time and what they put into those builds is a lot different than most people. YouTube money aside, some of their builds would have been non-starters out the gate if they had to pay themselves a full shop rate and did not have "buddies" that own a paint booth and did frame work who charge them next to nothing for using their work space in off business hours. Of course that is part of the charm is in how they hustle everything to make it work.
