West Coast Team Manager
The Trail Reaper has been a long time in the making. My love for off roading began in high school when my best friend got a CJ-7. Poor high school kids in the city, most of our off-roading consisted of internet researches and ripping through public parks late at night. Fast forward to 2007, when I bought the first and only Jeep I have ever owned. We moved to Big Bear in 2008 and I all of a sudden found myself living in an off roading destination. I have a Jeep and now live where trail access is in my backyard. I started wheeling my local trails with a stock Jeep, winch, sliders, and the desire to be a great driver. The Jeep started out more capable than my skill set, but as I got more seat time, I needed more performance from the Jeep. Time for a build! I went through a series of builds until 2012 when I was exposed to King of the Hammers and Ultra 4. The perfect blend between rock crawling and racing. I was immediately hooked and altered what I thought was even possible. I was involved with several race teams over the next few years and gained an understanding to peruse a new direction for the Jeep and my driving style. There were five performance parameters for the new build I had in mind. I still wanted it to look like a Jeep, wanted to run all the big name trails is the in the Hammers, run through the desert as fast as he motor would allow, get up Back Door at the Hammers, and still drive it on the street. In this, the Reaper was born. I was never involved in the Jeep industry until this phase. I spent the next three years involved with different companies, shooting film, going to events, and developing a name for myself in the industry. In January of 2020 I signed with Rockstar Garage as an ambassador. I’m in my second year with them now and couldn’t be happier! My goal has always been to push the Jeep’s limits, be the best driver I can, have fun and bring people together, and to be the best representative for Rockstar I can. I now find myself in the unique position of being Rockstar’s West Coast Team manager. I’m excited to continue to bring a high level driving performance and sense of professionals and good public relations to the Rockstar Team. Rockstar is all about top level performance and so am I! I look forward to this next chapter of building the new West Coast Team.
I have been involved in motorsports since a young age, primarily dirt bikes and quads. I met Alex Baciu about 5 years ago through a local Jeep club which is where my interest in Jeeps really sparked. After building Alex’s Jeep I wanted my own, which is still a work in progress but I love it! I work as an Aftermarket Sales Rep for ZEISS CMM’s where I help provide software, calibrations, training and accessories for these machines. I volunteer for my local Jeep club, Wicked Jeeps Southeast Michigan, as the Director of Events where I help plan wheeling 101’s/201’s, trail clean-ups, and scavenger hunts for charity. I also help coordinate and run The Great American Crawl tour across the US with The Rockstar Garage where we go and visit/showcase a multitude of off-road parks. In whatever free time I find, I enjoy spending it with my family at the lake, finding a new place to travel to and explore, learning more about the automotive world or helping others with whatever they may need help with (often times their own builds!). - Ari Leopardi
32 years young. Husband to a beautiful wife and father to 2 amazing hell raising kids. My love for the automotive lifestyle started around the age of 14 when my grandfather taught me how to drive a manual transmission car which he later on gave to me for my 16th birthday. It was a bright yellow 1979 VW rabbit. Gas not diesel. That car is what started it all. From that it led into lowered vehicles like my 1998 Oldsmobile bravada that even being 4wd I decided to take the plunge and put air ride suspension on it. Around that same time I got my first Jeep. It was a 1990 Jeep wrangler yj that when i purchased , it was in a million pieces. I did a full resto on that Jeep from the ground up and that’s what started me off into the world of jeeps. From then until now I’ve built many jeeps for myself and others. I think one of my most proud moments in life besides my marriage and the births of my children of course would have to be teaming up with nic Ashby and the rockstar garage to build a custom jeep for the SEMA show 2018 ( scrapyardjk ) Nowadays I spend my time with my family as much as possible and travel around for work to support them and give them the best life I possibly can. I still get out and wheel as much as possible and travel around with the rockstar garage and the great American crawl hitting the trails , helping others when I can, and just having a good time. - Geoffrey Kubik

Hello, my name is Alex, I enjoy candlelit dinners, moonlight strolls in the park, and Jeep’s. Just kidding, I’m not much of a fan of those except Jeep’s, I do love Jeeps!! I’m a 24 year old engineering graduate that currently is working in the fiber optic field. In my off time from work, I have been fortunate enough to travel the country and wheel different off-road parks with The Great American Crawl and my amazing girlfriend Ari. I have been in the off-road lifestyle for almost 10 years. My father got me started with Jeep’s and the passion carried on from there. I have taught 101 & 201’s to show new wheelers how to use their vehicles and recovery techniques in my local Jeep club, helped build several off-road rigs, gotten involved with vendor shows, and everything in between.
Since a young age I’ve been building and modifying every vehicle I could get my hands on. I got involved in the Offroad industry in 2008 and have loved every minute of it. My wife and I own a fiber optic construction company but our passion lies in the mountains strapped into a PRP seat pushing our jeeps to the limit. I feel extremely humble being a part of the Rockstar team. We have a great group of girls and guys that make up our Rockstar family and I love being a part of it.
I’m from the PNW area up in Washington state where I have primary been my entire life. I enjoy motorsports and all outdoor activities that includes my Jeep! I have a big passion for the Oregon coast dunes where I go out nearly every single second I get a chance and tear up the sand. I had a huge accident in 2019 at the dunes where I broke my back while out on a ride on my dirt bike. That injury left me with a spinal injury and I had suffered major paralysis below my waist. I was in a wheelchair for a good amount of time with the chances of never being able to walk or feel again. This really crushed me because of how active I am and I wasn’t about to give up everything especially my Jeep that I love!! For the next two years I would push myself striving to walk and not give up on myself regardless of what situation I was in during all this commotion I had joined rockstar garage showing no matter what may be your situation you always can have a great time doing what you love !
My name is Tim Muniz. I reside in beautiful Coeur D’Alene Idaho with my incredible wife and two amazing boys. I was introduced to the off-roading and Toyota world as a young kid in my grandfather’s 4runner. While stationed in Alaska I made a couple good friends that got me hooked on finding the best views to call camp. After building a couple trucks, we now have a 2017 Toyota Tacoma that we are in the process of building into the ultimate camping machine with the help of Rockstar Garage. Hope to see you on the trail!

Hey guys, I’m Logan Kallwick and happy to introduce myself as part of the Rockstar Performance Garage team! I reside in the Pacific Northwest where I run a horizontal directional drilling company that installs underground utilities. Off-road has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember and like most it started small and grew into an obsession. I started with a Jeep XJ and transitioned to a full tube chassis LS powered monster truggy that I built by myself in my garage. I recently embarked on a new journey with a new project that I am excited to work on with the help and support of Rockstar and will be putting together another tube chassis with a Toyota body that will be sporting big tires, big axles, and big power! Follow along if you have a taste for excitement! Cheers!
Well a little story of when I was 10, I told all my teachers I was gonna build a life size RC truck when I grew up since I was slightly fascinated at the time with RC trucks. Ofcourse they all laughed and said “It’s nice to have dreams little Stevie, but as you grow older things will change!" As is turns out they were all right, things did change! I taught myself speaker enclosure design around 11, sold my first car subwoofer box at 13 and was hooked on car stereo where my love for automobiles was born. I played with car audio on my own until the age of 19. When a custom system I did got recognized by a private aircraft cabinet master. Then, two years later I was building private yacht interiors to graduate 3 years later to private aircraft interiors specializing in composite super lightweight aerospace cabinetry, doors, tables and anything else built from composites, sheet metal structures for aircraft ranging from G5’s all the way to Boeing 777 for Kings, Sultans and the worlds richest individuals so no movie stars they don’t have this much money! I traveled the world building these aircraft but once I got my 2016 Tacoma I fell in love with cars all over again and started modding it. I haven’t looked back since other than to laugh at everyone who thought I was crazy as a 10 year old cuz they didn’t see this one coming. God Bless America!

Most of you may know me as @vandecon on social media so hit me up anytime on Instagram or TikTok. I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about jeep life, the military, training, and the awesome brands that we work with.
Kansas native, Mitch Moore is a self employed roofing contractor. I purchased my first Jeep Wrangler in 2018 with the intention of doing some "easy" Colorado passes. Within a few months, I upgraded to a Rubicon and started to build that. 4.5 lift, beadlocks 38's and so on. I attended the very first Great American crawl event at SMORR in August of 2020 and my passion for hardcore rock crawling was born. Late in 2020, I turned my jeep over to the Rockstar Garage to build the ultimate rock crawling/racing jeep, which would also be the featured build for The Great American Crawl 2021. The Great American Crawl has been an event that has brought my family together, my wife and children attend the crawls and my daughter Sadie has her jeep at most events as well. Not to mention, the new friends made at each event along with the Rockstar ambassadors that have become family.
ARW Off-Road & Performance
Chris has always had a passion for anything fast or loud. He started riding motorcycles at a very early age. And was racing automobiles before he even had a driver's license. In 2013, the Witt family endured two devastating losses. The family patriarch, Ronald Allan Witt, passed in February. And then in November, Chris' brother, Mike, lost a newborn son, Arie Ronald Witt. It was then that the two brothers decided to spend less time behind a desk and more time enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. Named in honor of departed family members, ARW Custom Off Road Products, LLC. was brought to life in January of 2014. With Chris' 20+ years of experience in the high-performance automotive industry, and Mike's background in global logistics and business development, the two brothers combined their passions and experience to bring quality, service, and reliable custom solutions to their customers. ARW quickly earned the reputation for designing high quality bumpers, building award winning Jeeps, and for supplying one-of-a-kind accessories; like their new Gladiator Sportbed. At ARW Offroad & Performance, Chris and Mike make dreams comes true. If you do something you love, you'll never work a day in your life. And you should always dress for the job you want; not the job you have. That is why you will usually find Chris wearing shorts and a t-shirt.
