Tri-County Gear was founded in 1987 by Jason Bunch.
Though he started as a motocross racer as a young teen, Jason’s love of off-roading began in 1974 when he purchased his first Jeep–a 1941 Willys Flatfender. Since that time, Jason has raced and competed in nearly every type of Jeep competition imaginable. From Sand Drags and Mud Racing, to Rock Crawling and Desert Racing…Jason has always been a pioneer and top competitor.
After working for other off-road businesses for over a decade, Jason created Tri-County Gear with one thing in mind– to share his knowledge and passion for the sport of off-roading.
