In the true american spirit a man immigrated from Germany fueled by his love of jeeps and started a family legacy. 

Recently I got the itch as so many Jeep owners do that it was time to make some changes to our 2014 Roguerubi. She started out as my third jeep a 2014 Rubicon X and up till now the only changes have been largely cosmetic with lights and such. Much like a good tattoo you need to do some research before you commit. After speaking with the folks at Fortec in Marietta I was more than confident in my decision. You see your Jeep becomes part of your family very quickly and my family has a long history of being part of Jeep from its earliest days so you don't just hand her off to anyone. 

Fortec has a similar path starting out by importing Jeeps to Germany for sale to other enthusiasts. This naturally led to the same jeeps needing parts and as the business grew so did the passion for Jeeps. Eventually this lead to operations moving to our side of the pond and like most small businesses there were ups and downs over the years. Twenty-five years later though they're still going strong and only getting stronger.  With two locations on Georgia and one in Florida, forward progress seems to almost be another product Fortec has been able to capture.  

So what can Fortec do? Well the list of services they dont offer is probably shorter but according to them the list contains: Sales & Installation of High Quality Upgrades for Jeep  Complete Custom Jeep Solutions  Axle & Gear Upgrades  Hemi Conversions  Custom Suspension Work  One-On-One Consultation & Jeep Dealership Support  Professional Customer Service & Tech Support  World Wide Shipping 

On top of all that they were able to take what I wanted out of my Jeep and help me select the items to get me there.  With the possibilities for accessories and modifications on Jeeps about as limitless as the stars it helps to have friends with a bit of knowledge under the hood. So next time you need something for your off road ride hit up our friends at Fortec.

The Survival Tree
The Survival Tree

April 12, 2018

A lot of people have asked me about how they could increase their survivability in an active shooter situation. The reality is sometimes you can’t win and that’s something you should be training for. Train for the worst day of your life and hopefully when it happens it’s nowhere near the level you trained for. If you’re lucky, your preparations will have paid off. However, the reality that you should always keep in the worst case scenario box is that you will not win. Get comfortable with that monster and snuggle up. You’re going to be spending a lot of time together. When you understand and embrace the fear, it allows you to rationally respond. In some fortunate moments, you will recognize the monster you’ve become comfortable with.

Self Over Brand

March 15, 2018

I read somewhere recently that people put their faith in brands now over more traditional things.  Looking at my social media feeds and several news outlets this becomes very clear.  Not only do people get upset when they find out their favorite brands don’t fit their social expectations but they pay homage to brands for their personal successes.  Somewhere along the way we lost sight of the fact that brands are there for business but without the customer there is no brand.  Examining the idea of such things can be taboo but I like taboo so lets do this.

Changing your path

February 22, 2018

There was recently a statement that I read from former Facebook employee that said something to the lines of people are mistaking popularity for truth. Perhaps once upon a time this was for the most part true but the days of the popular opinion being accurate are gone. This leads both sides of an argument to utilize not only inaccurate data for decision making but readily gives the other side flaming arrows to fire back. Unfortunately along with the truth exiting stage left it took civility along for the trip. The study was abandoned for the cave by men and the hard choices are left to what will gain the individual the most digital likes. The currency of doing the right thing has dropped in value like a third world currency in the middle of a violent revolution.
