Kevin Peddie and Tracy Norell are friends, co-organizers, Jeep enthu- siast and most importantly, off-road addicts! In fact, they love off-road- ing so much that they created a public group named North Country Off-Road Addicts. If Kevin had his way, he would spend the vast majority of his time

off-roading or showing off Mario, his 2012 Jeep JK Rubicon, at meets or adding more mods to increase his enjoyment of both of those activ- ities. Kevin’s reason for off-roading is pretty blunt: “being able to see parts of this country others can’t get to”. So far, Kevin has a couple of prime candidates for best mod on his ride: “I love my gear set 5”13 Yukon Gears. This allows me to run my tires of choice with no loss of power in the mud or on the hills. That is followed by my Rock Krawler 2.5” Suspension System, which matches with the Fox 2.0 Shocks.” Kevin’s next modifications will either be a custom rear winch or 14” coil overs, front and rear.

When it comes to Mario, Kevin has a philosophy, after long days spent off-roading over rough terrain in the Alberta Wilderness. He states: “I own a Jeep so the work is never done - new parts come out and there are new trails to discover. I would be lying if I said I had an end game.“

Mario still has to do double duty as a daily driver as well as being a conqueror of the unknown wild. In addition, Kevin takes Mario to local meets, shows, charity runs, memorial runs and trail clean- ups. When he’s headed to those kinds of events, “I like to keep my rig looking nice and clean yet at the same time, I am not afraid to push it to its limits on the trail.”
