After wheeling an XJ Cherokee for a few years, the Nevada firefighter set his sights on a fullsize Jeep Wagoneer. “I saw this thing for sale on Facebook and went to check it out,” he recalls. “I made a deal with the seller, but I got called off to a fire shortly thereafter. When I got back he told me it was sold, and I was heartbroken.”
Little did Brody know that his girlfriend, MacKenzie, and her father had bought the Wagoneer for him and were keeping it as a surprise.
