Hi, My name is Jefe the Great (AKA Jeff Glancy). My Hometown is Santa Clarita, CA (5 minutes from Six Flags Magic Mountain). I went to Canyon High School and was in the Marching Band playing Clarinet and the Jazz Band playing Bass Guitar.
Going on to bigger and better things, I went to BYU (Brigham Young University) for two semesters (Fall 1998 - Winter 1999) majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I then served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (AKA Mormons) in the Russia Samara Mission from July 1999 - July 2000. I worked for my father at AMT Systems Inc. as a Shop Tech. in high school and worked my way up as a Web Designer, Programmer, Installer, and Jr. A/V Systems Engineer until 2007.
I bought my 2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 with 20k miles on it in Oct of 2000, and started modifying it immediately. After taking it off-road for the first time with the Explorer Forum crew in January 2001 I was hooked. I took a big step and performed a solid axle swap (SAS) in November of 2003. It has been on countless trails in Southern California as well as Arizona, Moab and the Rubicon. You can see the list of modifications as well as many years worth of pictures by clicking on the 'My Explorer' button on the left. I sold the Explorer in July 2007 as it had become less fun to drive on-road, and it really needed a trailer and tow rig to take it to the next level. It now resides in Alabama. I am not giving up on four wheeling by any means; I just need a garage of my own and a tow rig next time. =)
As my Explorer became more off-road worthy and less reliable on-road I needed a daily driver. I picked up my 2001 Ford Focus SE in December 2005 with 60k miles on it. I quickly made friends on FocalJet and Focus Fanatics and was invited to take my car to the track shortly after and have been tracking my Focus since. The tracks so far include: Streets of Willow Springs, Buttonwillow, California Speedway and Laguna Seca. I intend to keep the modifications based around NASA’s Spec Focus series, so that I can compete with them a few years down the line. Pictures and modifications of my Focus can be found by clicking on the 'My Focus' button on the left.
