1999 Chevy Tracker

I bought this Tracker with the intention to build it into a dedicated rockcrawler.  Before that happened though, I slapped some 32-inch tall tires, lower transfer case gears, and a mini spool in the rear end and took it to Moab, the Rubicon, and Fordyce.  The premise was to keep the vehicle lightweight, and it worked incredibly well.  Jesse Haines convinced me to sell this Tracker and purchase a 2WD Tracker in order to run a divorced Samurai transfer case.
