A meeting of the Josh Minds...
"Bad" Josh Bloom
Owner Hooligan Off Road
"Good" Josh Lowenstein
Owner Crawlertech4x4
Good Josh started Crawlertech in 2004 with the thought of building bad ass jeeps by hand, with basic hand tools grinders and welders. As time went on Plasma cutters, band saws, Mill and Lathe and benders of all types were listed amongst the CT assets. Design and Engineering has come from Josh's mind and experience of 30+ years in the industry.. Many hundreds of jeeps lifted and geared have come through our doors and we are grateful for all of them.
But a few jeeps have been huge in every respect of the word, Kendal TJ was super cool.
Dan's TJ and Buggy took on many incarnations and introduced the CT boatsides and many other inovations.
Luke's RockCharger YJ has been under the wing in creation years before Crawlertech existed, Craig's Elmo is in the flux of CoilOvers now and will be way flexier.
Kevin's "Stinger" was our longest build 114" wheelbase LOL, but the most innovative to date Cyril's TJ is next as will Jason's S10.
A little of Luke's and lots of Kevin's jeeps became the groundwork for the meeting of the Josh/Josh minds in many respects.
Good Josh needed a better way of creation for repeatable parts and to be able to alter them for more accurate fitment. Enter Hooligan's Bad Josh, his CNC plasma table and 8 axis CNC 88 ton press-brake has been a breath of fresh air to CT. Between our machines, design and engineering we can effectively build anything. Here we Come!!
Bad Josh Bloom has been owner of Hooligan Off Road for 4 years and has taken that name to a national stage for his XJ parts and now JK skid plate systems and soon many more and even cooler products to take over the world with.
Josh has programing and bend geometry skills that have taken him into industrial applications too. But Jeeps and building the baddest around have been his passion.
