Kegan Baker


If you have been following the Featured Jeeper blogs you will see one thing that is shows tons of diversity, the age of Jeep off roading enthusiasts… from the young to the old, one thing that is always the same is the love of it. Today’s Featured Jeeper is Kegan Baker. Read on to get to know this young Jeep enthusiast and catch a glimpse of a little softer side of Jeepers. Just because you are into extreme sports like off-roading doesn’t mean there is not a soft side under all that adrenaline. .

Kegan Baker

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Favorite spot to off road?
Kegan Baker: Favorite spot is Windrock Offroad Park in Oliver Springs, TN.

XtremeTerrain: Favorite off roading quote?
Kegan Baker: Favorite quote would probably be “this side up” or “Don’t worry that sounds normal.”

XtremeTerrain: If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
Kegan Baker: If I could have any kind of modification done, I would like a Dana 44’s front and rear with 4.88s and ARB lockers.

XtremeTerrain: What was your best/worse modification if any?
Kegan Baker: Best modifications I have done have been Chromoly shafts in my D30 along with 4.10s and a ARB air locker; Super 35 kit in the rear also with 4.10s and a ARB locker.
Worst mod would be putting lockers and Chromoly shafts in the D30 / 35 instead of just paying a little more for D44s; Warn front bumper with XD9000I winch “old style”; and Warn rock sliders, 4.5 in. Rustys short arm.

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: How old were you when you first started off roading?
Kegan Baker: First started wheelin at age 14, rode dirt bikes and 4-wheelers until I was 22. It was ten I decided to sell my built 1995 Mustang GT and get into jeeps, and rock crawlin. No regrets!

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Why you love Jeep Off Roading?
Kegan Baker: I got into Jeeps instead of anything else because of the massive aftermarket support. The fans and the people that are all into jeeps is more like one big family, especially at Jamborees. Everyone helps everyone else, give tips, share modifications, and stories. There is never a dull moment!

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.
Kegan Baker: One off roading incident that comes to mind is when I got stuck between 2 rocks on a local trail. I broke a front axle shaft then my rear driveshaft “all within about 15 seconds.” I had to winch & be towed 2.4 miles back to the trail head where I removed my broken shaft and rear driveshaft and drove back to camp with one wheel drive. Lesson learned? I now carry extra axles and u joints!!

Note to readers from Kegan: The pictures shows I am running BFG a/ts which is NOT my normal tire, I run 33/12.50 Baha claws for wheeling, A/T rest of the time. I drive my jeep 1500+ miles a month and the BFG wear much better on the highway.

Kevin L. Marchant


Today’s Featured Jeeper is none less then Kevin Marchant. Kevin comes to us from Missouri. Yet another family that loves the adventure off Jeep off roading – allow me to turn this over to Kevin as he shares his life and his jeep.

Kevin L. Marchant


Hello, a little about me you say… My name is Kevin L. Marchant. I am 32 yrs old, married (10+yrs) with 2 kids, one of each, 9 and 7 and they both love my TJ. My daughter has always had fun going off roading with me, but this summer she and her brother seemed extremely excited every time they got to go with us. My son has always loved the jeep; pretty sure it’s the only vehicle he remembers me owning.

Kevin L. Marchant


We play in a 02’ TJ with a RE SF 4.5” lift with a 1” body, and motor mount lift, Tom woods supper shorty, my own belly up skid (Rev A we call it.. trust me its UGLY…). Currently running stock 4.0 5 speed combo on stock dana 30/44 combo with 3:73 gears. Our last trip to Flat n Nasty park down south east Mo. we ran on 37” MTR’s wrapped around some nice alloys (no I don’t know who’s, at the time they were borrowed but soon to be mine and the wife and I like the look!)

Kevin L. Marchant


I hope to drop my lift down to a 2.5 and go LCG style with highline and cut rear fenders. I can do this because me and my cuz and some friends build jeep parts; one off’s custom stuff. So I don’t have to shell big bucks and the jeep is all mine so I Fab on the side, teach Design software full time (I am a geek, and a outdoor nut) Our favorite park other than Co. is Disney Ok. It has everything from big obstacles, to tight V-notchs (my personal Fav) some mud, or no mud, (most of the time you have a choice) and Hogan’s camping is pretty sweet. He has got a shop that if you can do it, you can use to fix your carnage.

Kevin L. Marchant


Oh, did I mention my axles are wide open I love hearing “When did you lock that thing up?! … I didn’t… O, Sweet!” Makes me smile. If I could do it over again, I’d of stayed LCG rather than running the Short arm kit with long travel shocks. I want to go 2.5” with a Flat belly, Rough Country. I really like there shocks, and the progressive springs; Outboard the shocks and tons of travel, and provide a very stable feel.

Kevin L. Marchant


A lot of the guys/gals I run with run a wide range of setups and like the LCG movement, as it just makes sense. Mostly I run with a ornery group of pals (best part of wheeling IMO, good peeps all around) most of the time, but we all met through the Kansas City Jeep Club. It’s had its ups and downs but it is on the mend now. I plan on joining again in January. I served as VP, Safety and on the board in the past, and look to be a member again as its restructured now. www.kcjeepclub.org check us/them out! Good peeps for the gross majority, and a good family orientated group as well. Been wheeling with them for about 6 years.

Kevin L. Marchant


I grew up playing in the mud with my sisters Cj7 (she’s got a JK now) To many stories to pick just one. Once I ended up on my side (on flat ground, completely sober) to backed over a Lincoln limo (no body panel or bumper touched it, all tire!) to lifting and off-road before I owned it 7 days.
