Reason for building/tell us the story behind it from your views. Why this vehicle, what was your motivation and any stories you want to share along its process. = Growing up I always had a thing for the Geo Trackers in the Mini Truck scene.
Name of Ride and story behind it = So, I was inspired by an article on Street Source, and I knew then what we were going to build. So, the search was on for a GEO Tracker. A few weeks later I bought the GEO from my buddy Jason Kilpatrick. This is where the story of “Knock off” began.

Paint (include performed by) = Jeremy Henline JD Kustoms
Jeremy did an amazing job on the Geo. He was able to take my idea of honoring Take 2 and create one of the Baddest Geo Tracker that I have seen.
This is how the name came to be. I have always admired the paint work on Craig Rowley’s Mazda known as Take 2 and wanted to honor a truck that inspired me to do something crazy. I reached out to Craig during the painting process and let him know that we were using Take 2 as the inspiration behind the paint work. Once we leaked a few picture, Comments were made that is was a “knockoff” of Take 2.
Stereo / Audio (include performed by) = NTX Audio Innovations. My crew here at the shop did an amazing job. Thanks to Cristian Anaya, Turo Diaz and Jon Joynt. Would Also like to thank Jimmy Bradfield with Rockford Fosgate and Richard Hung Wong with Sony Mobile for the support on this build.
