Gnarly Dave Collier’s Juggy

by Curtis Guise on October 14, 2015

Dave Collier is no stranger to the desert. Growing up traveling with his parents in a Jeep CJ5 to Ocotillo and Gordons Well, it didn’t take long for him to start racing District 38 and eventually co-driving in 4-wheel vehicles in the Mint 400 and Frontier 500 in the late 80’s.  Next step was his own class 9 car which he raced into the 90’s.  By 2003 he built his own 5-1600 car and went on to win a SCORE championship in 2004 along with the Toyota Milestone True Grit award for the season.

As his family grew racing became less of a priory and he set out to build his dream prerunner.  The idea of the “Juggy” was born in 2005 and it finally hit the dirt 6 years later.

Jeep + Buggy = JUGGY. Concept: Tube chassis aluminum CJ-8 body.  Rear wheel well cut out of a CJ-7. Street legal CA plate. Originally built as 5 seater.
